DIAGNOdentTM

More and more patients place value on healthy and attractive teeth.
In order to maintain them, the earliest possible care is essential.
DIAGNOdent aids in the detections of caries.
Even very small lesions are detected at the earliest stage, enabling you to

The Vita Easy ShadeTM is based on electronic photospectrographic analysis.
It allows our lab technicians to create a much more life-like final result on your

Insurance Information & Financial Policy

Insurance Information

We believe you deserve the best care. That's why we always present you with the best dental solution possible to treat your personal situation. Each year we provide outstanding care to hundreds of people. Some have dental benefits, but most don't.

If you have dental benefits, congratulations! You are very fortunate. Here are some important things you should know. Insurance companies do not recognize many routine and newer dental services. Implant services and Bruxism appliances are prime examples. Your dental benefits are based upon a contract made between your employer and an insurance company. Your range of benefits depends solely on what your employer decided to purchase. Some plans cover as little as 30% or as much as 100% of dental services (less applicable deductibles, and plan maximums). Some plans base the amount of benefit on a schedule of fees arbitrarily developed by insurance companies. For this reason, you may receive a lower percentage than the reimbursement level indicated in your dental plan.

Your insurance company is responsible to you, and not to our office. However, we will assist you in any way we can to maximize your available benefits. Please remember, dental benefits will rarely pay for the completion of your entire dental care. It is only meant to assist you. If you have any questions regarding your dental benefits that we can not answer please contact your employer or insurance company directly. We will do our best to help coordinate your dental benefits so that you receive the maximum possible reimbursement for the services we have provided you. As a courtesy, our staff will gladly provide you with any necessary forms or submit any paperwork on your behalf to assist you in receiving direct reimbursement by your insurance carrier. If your carrier accepts electronic claims we will file for you.

Financial Policy

Please ask a member of our staff about financing options available. We will gladly review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs. If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service. Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment by either cash or check. In addition Visa, MasterCard and American Express are also accepted. For patients whose treatment will be completed over several visits or months, we offer 1/3 payments. The first 1/3 is due at the first treatment visit. The second third in the middle of treatment and the last third near the end of treatment. To allow us to save on accounting costs, we offer our patients a pre-payment savings if they pay their treatment plan in full at least one week prior to their first appointment to begin the treatment. This offer applies ONLY to any treatment plans over $7,500.00. A 10% accounting reduction is offered if pre-paid in full by check or cash, or 5% by Visa, MasterCard, or American Express. 0% Financing over 12 Months or Long Term Financing: We work with CareCredit, a third party financer, which offers our patients a low interest rate and a low monthly payment financing. Please ask for an application. (0% financing available over 12 months or extended payment plans available at about 11.9% interest.) You can also apply online at: www.carecredit.com.
