Financial and Insurance Information              

Most oral surgical services have coverage from most dental insurance companies. Most dental implant procedures are not covered by insurance carriers. Our insurance coordinators deal with many insurance companies. Some companies offer many medical and dental plans. Because many companies frequently change policies, it is sometimes difficult to accurately estimate our patient's insurance co-payment. Many insurance companies will not give out fees until after the treatment is completed.

As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you is current. Typically we will collect your portion and you will be reimbursed by your insurance carrier. They may or may not reimburse the full amount. This is determined by a contract between your employer and the insurance company.

At the time of your initial visit, your treatment plan will be established along with an estimate of fees. We will file your insurance paperwork to help receive all entitled reimbursements. Please bring your insurance forms with you and have your portion filled out and signed to expedite the filing of your claim.

Co-payments: All co-payments are payable when you check in at the front desk.

Private and Group Insurance: As a courtesy, we will file your insurance claims for you. Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you. If you have deposited an excessive co-payment, it will be refunded to you.

Our financial coordinator will be happy to discuss payment arrangements that will suit your needs. We accept cash, check, VISA, and Mastercard . We also have special financing options available.

If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your initial visit. Upon arriving at the office, a complete financial policy will be provided to you.
