The first step towards a beautiful, healthy smile is to schedule an appointment. Please contact our office by phone or complete an online appointment request.
If you are a new patient to our office, please visit our Patient Forms page to download our medical/dental history questioner and our insurance information form that will need to be filled out when you arrive at our office. Printing them, filling them out and bringing them with you will allow us to attend to your periodontal needs more quickly than completing them on your arrival. Thank you and please contact our office, if you have any questions at all.
For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders, and most major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. Feel free to contact our office If your treatment plan requires more comprehensive dental work and you want to discuss financial arrangements.
As a service to our patients, our practice will cooperate with all dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network and submit the requested clinical information. We are not part of any insurance program or managed care network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated or our fee. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate, if required by your insurance company, so that you will know what your benefits will be.
The fees charged for our periodontal services rendered are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services, because we only have one fee schedule. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly, while others delay payment for several months.
If there are any questions about your insurance or the monies allocated by the insurance for your procedures, please contact our office managers, Nancy or Diane.
