Insurance and Billing
In this day and age, we know deciphering your insurance benefits can be confusing. We are happy to help you with insurance concerns and will file the necessary paperwork for you. We are not a contracted provider of any plan; however, we will do our best to help you get the most from your benefits. We do ask patients to pay deposits for large cases of dental work and co-pay at each visit. We feel that your insurance should never dictate the quality or timing of your treatment.
We offer a variety of payment options. Of course we accept cash and checks. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. For larger, more involved treatment plans we offer Carecredit, an outside financing company. Several of these companies offer interest fee financing programs. Our goal is to help you afford the dentistry that you want now.
CareCredit is here to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover. We offer No Interest* financing or low minimum monthly payment options so you can get what you want, when you want it. You can even use CareCredit for your family and favorite pet.
With three simple steps, including an instant approval process, it’s easy to apply for CareCredit. After you’re approved, you’re free to use CareCredit for the services you choose including LASIK, veterinary, dentistry, cosmetic, hearing aids and more.
CareCredit is endorsed by some of the most credible organizations specific to each healthcare profession we support. And CareCredit is a GE Money Company, so you know you can count on us. For over 20 years, we’ve been helping over five million cardholders get the healthcare treatments they want and need.
