Have a balance?
When you are in the midst of being treated for a medical
or dental problem, it's easy to forget that a doctor's
office is also a business. We understand that. Yet, we
also want our patients to understand that an important
part of any business is also collecting payments for the
services it provides. In the interest of both good
medicine and good business, we believe it's best to
establish a policy to avoid any misunderstandings later.
As a result we have developed this policy.
We have developed a full range of convenient payment
options for you to choose from. Prior to the
commencement of treatment, fee and financial
arrangements will be discussed with you. Our front desk

maintaining your health.
term "dental insurance" is misleading. What is commonly
known as "dental insurance" is more correctly termed
dental benefits. Dental benefits are not intended to pay
everything, but to assist with costs of dental
treatment. Generally, dental benefits pay a percentage
of each procedure up to a set yearly maximum. The
benefits available to you are established by which plan
your employer has purchased.
a courtesy to you, we will submit claims to your dental
plan carrier. We also accept benefit assignment, meaning
that we will estimate the expected benefit payment and
allow you to pay your estimated portion at the time
services are provided. However, we do not guarantee any
estimate, and should your dental plan pay less than
expected, you are fully responsible for the balance. We
take no responsibility for any denials by dental plans.
