Insurance

The goal of our office is to provide the highest quality dental services to each child we have the privilege of treating. We want treatment to be rendered in a manner that is efficient and comfortable for each child. We also want the financial aspects of the treatment to be comfortable for the parents.

 

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Our office will be happy to file any insurance forms for you if you bring your insurance handbook and information. Insurance deductibles or percentage of fees not covered by dental insurance are due when services are rendered. If the insurance payment is not received within 45 days, you will be responsible for the unpaid balance. Any problem with your insurance is between you and your insurance carrier.

 

All fees less than $200.00 will be due and payable at the time of treatment. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express and dental insurance. For fees in excess of $200.00, payment options are available through our bookkeeping department. Our office will offer a 5% Bookeeper’s allowance on all fees over $400.00 that are paid in full by cash, checks or cashiers check on the day of service. On all outpatient surgery cases, payment in full is required seven (7) days prior to the surgery date. Dental insurance can be filed through our office for this procedure.

Facts To Know About Insurance

 

Dental insurance plays a role in helping people obtain dental treatment. We appreciate this fact. In an effort to help maximize your insurance assistance, we would like to share some facts about dental insurance with you.

 

FACT #1:

Dental insurance is not meant to cover all fees; it is meant to provide assistance for your investment in your dental health.

 

FACT #2:

Many carriers announce that they reimburse the insured person “up to 100% of fees.” In actuality, we have found many plans cover about 50% to 60% of average fees. Some plans pay more, some less. The amount your plan pays is determined by how much your employer paid for the plan. The less paid for the insurance, the less you will be reimbursed.

 

FACT #3:

Some insurance companies tell their customers that their dentist’s “fees are above the usual and customary fees” rather than saying “our benefits are low.” Remember, you receive only what your employer puts into the plan, less the profits of the insurance company.

 

FACT #4:

Some dental services are not covered by dental insurance.

 

FACT #5:

All patients are charged similar fees whether or not they have insurance coverage. We will make every effort to help you receive the maximum assistance allowed under your insurance plan.

We cannot, however, change dates dental care was delivered. We will complete and file your insurance forms at no charge.

 

Please do not hesitate to ask questions about our office procedures. We want you to be comfortable in dealing with those matters, and we urge you to consult us if you have any questions regarding our services and/or fees.

 

If you have any questions regarding your insurance, we ask that you contact your employer regarding the specifics and details of your plan. Your dental insurance is between you, your employer and your carrier. We have no way to affect how much of the fee will be covered by insurance.
