We realize that every person’s financial situation is different. For this reason, we have worked hard to provide a variety of payment options to help your child receive the dental care that he needs and deserves that allows him to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile. Dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual’s medical and psychological care. Children with healthy teeth can sleep better, learn better, and feel better. We are always available to answer your questions or assist you in any way we can.
Should your child require any dental services beyond routine exams and cleanings, you will be given an explanation of treatment along with a written treatment plan. This includes an itemized breakdown of fees for each procedure, as well as an estimate of your insurance benefit. Any difference in price between our fee and your estimated insurance payment is due at the time of service. We can submit your child's treatment plan to your insurance company for pre-estimation. This will allow us to better estimate the insurance payment.
To maintain the practice operations and prevent potential misunderstandings, we ask patients to accept and adhere to the following financial arrangements regarding their dental treatment.
Optional Payment Terms:
- Deductible and Co-Pay on Day-of-Service: As a courtesy to you, we will submit all required paperwork to your insurance company for reimbursement. We will also estimate your balance due after insurance. This balance is due on the day of service. Any remaining balance after insurance payment will be billed to you; any credit will be refunded promptly, or applied to your account at your request.
- Major Service - Four Payment Option: We offer a four-payment option for dental treatment plans exceeding $500. We ask that you make your first of four monthly installments at the first operative appointment. There is no credit check and no interest or service charge for this service. You will need to authorize our office to bill your credit card each month for the remaining three payments.
- Major Service – 36 Month Option: We offer a 36 month payment option for dental treatment plans exceeding $1000. A deposit of $200 is required for this option, due at the first date of service. This option is available to those who qualify following a credit check. The interest rate is 15.9% APR for the term of the loan. We ask that you make your first of four monthly installments at the first operative appointment. You will need to authorize our office to bill your credit card each month for the remaining payments.
