Office Policies

FEES & INSURANCE

Financil Policy

Our goal is provide our patients with the best dental care possible at the most reasonable cost. Payment for care is due at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made in advance. To help you, we offer a variety of payment options including cash, check, VISA, Mastercard.

The fee for your endodontic treatment will be discussed with you in advance and is based on many factors. Endodontic fees in our office range from $500 to $1,200 depending on tooth location, case difficulty, as well as non-surgical vs. a surgical approach.

Insurance

Dental insurance helps you pay for the cost of your dental care. Generally, a dental benefit plan is a contract between your employer, or plan sponsor, and a third party (insurance company). These contracts vary widely. Your dental plan is designed to share in your dental care costs. It may not cover the total cost of your treatment. Most plans cover between 50 to 80 percent of dental services.

Our office is happy to cooperate with individuals who are covered by insurance and will assist them in filing their claims with their insurance carrier. We ask patients to provide us with all their insurance information at the time they make their appointment and we will assist them in every way possible in finding out their insurance benefits. We also ask patients to be responsible for the portion their insurance does not cover at the time of service. The patient is personally responsible for all fees for services provided, not the insurance company. We will wait 90 days for the insurance company to pay their portion. In the event the insurance company fails to pay, rejects the claim, or does not pay the total balance, we ask that the patient make arrangements for payment. We are happy to discuss any finance questions or problems they may have and find possible options.
