Treatment Fees and Insurance

We understand that a significant number of our patients rely on dental insurance to cover most of their dental needs. Our staff is committed to working with you and your insurance company to maximize your insurance benefits. Our policy is to have our patients with insurance pay one half of treatment cost at the time of treatment. If your insurance company reimburses at a higher rate, we will provide you with a refund. Occasionally insurance companies will not cover the entire remaining balance. When this occurs you will be responsible for the balance.


Our practice also participates with a financial assistance company, Care Credit. For your convenience, Care Credit applications can be accessed and completed either online or in our office. Please contact our office for details.

Appointments

We understand that your time is valuable, and we will make every effort to provide services in a prompt fashion. We strive to give each patient our undivided attention with unsurpassed service for his or her appointment time. In exchange, we expect that you will be present for your appointment at the scheduled time. We understand that scheduling conflicts occasionally occur and would appreciate at least a 24 hour notice if cancellation of your appointment is necessary.

Payment & Insurance

Endodontic services vary greatly due to the nature and complexity of the procedure. The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the extent of treatment. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Endodontic fees usually range from $600 to $1,800 and it is our policy that your care is paid for at the time of treatment.
