We welcome and encourage frank discussion of services and fees prior to treatment in order to avoid any misunderstandings.
The financial obligations for the treatment we render to you are your responsibility. However, we will be pleased to assist you in providing the appropriate information for submission to your insurance company for reimbursement.
Payment for services rendered is due at the time of the service. You will be told prior to the visit the amount of the fee. You may pay by credit card, check (with valid driver’s license), or cash. For extensive treatment plans, please request an application for specific dental credit plans from our insurance coordinator.
There will be a billing charge for accounts delinquent past 60 days and the patient will be charged a service charge of one and a half percent per month until the account is paid in full.
If the account goes into default and is turned over to collection, the patient will be responsible for any additional charges incurred due to the collection agency or legal fees.
- Consultation are generally free unless extensive x-rays are required.
- For some consultations, a Panorex X-ray is necessary.
Since your time is valuable... we want to ensure that we respect your appointment schedule. We will provide you with advanced notice if we need to reschedule an appointment due to unforeseen circumstances (weather,illness, accident, etc...). In much the same way, we reserve the right to charge $50 for every hour of appointment time that is reserved for you unless a 24hr cancellation notice has been provided. After three (3) such missed appointments without notice will result in dismissing you as a patient of record from our office (at our discretion) .
