Payment & Office Policies


The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans, and file the necessary papers to the insurance company. We work hard to make dental care affordable and to make sure that you realize your insurance benefits. Cancellation of appointments without sufficient notice will result in a broken appointment fee.


In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:

  • Your estimated portion of a dental procedure must be paid for at the time of service. As a courtesy on large cases, one-half of the fees can be paid at the start of the procedure, and the remaining balance at the final visit.
  • You are responsible for any portion of a dental fee that is not covered by your dental insurance. We can only provide an estimate of what your insurance will pay.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA and MASTERCARD.
  • Financing is available through CareCredit. No-interest financing is available.


If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and patients are responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

Our office also provides treatment for worker's compensation cases. We will do our best to work with your employer and resolve your treatment needs in a timely manner.
