Dental Insurance

Dental insurance is a contract between the patient, their employer and their insurance company.

We are here to assist you with calls to your insurance company, in your presence, to determine eligibility and coverage, and to also assist with predeterminations. We believe an informed patient will utilize their dental benefits, which maximizes their overall health.

It is the patient's responsibility to pay the fees for their dental procedures. We accept the following methods of payment: Mastercard, Visa, Debit, and Cash.

Cancellation

Appointments are scheduled specifically for you. Our team will contact you with a reminder before your appointment. However, it is your responsibility to arrive for the scheduled appointment. We require a minimum of 2 full business days' notice to change and/or cancel appointments.
