Office Policies


Insurance


Dental Insurance is different from Medical Insurance. Many patients aren’t familiar with the specifics of their dental insurance benefits. Your dental benefits are based on the agreement your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier. Our excellent staff will call your company and take care of all paperwork. We submit your claims and paper work and are more than willing to explain your coverage to you. However, please review your benefit booklet provided by your employer to better understand the benefits and make sure we have accurate information about your coverage. The patient payment portion covered for procedures varies depending on the coverage provided by your employer.

An estimate of the amount covered by your insurance company will be provided at the time of your treatment, based on the information they provide to us. The estimate is never a guarantee of benefits or the amount that will be paid. While we file all insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients this does not transfer the responsibility of your financial obligation to the insurance company. If the amount paid by the insurance company is less than then the procedure amount you will be billed the difference or issued a credit in the event of an overpayment. Please let us know if you have questions about our financial policies. We are happy to help and call the company for you.
