Payment for dental Services and Insurance

Dental insurance is intended to cover some, but not all, of the costs necessary for your dental care.


Most plans include coinsurance provisions, a deductible, and certain other expenses which must be paid by the patient at the time of service. Reimbursement amounts are not, and never have been, a guideline for quality care. After paying your estimated portion of the fees, we will be happy to file most insurance claims for you. Please bring your insurance plan information with you on your first visit. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.

Payment Options

For that portion of costs not covered by insurance, we offer several payment options:
  • Cash or Personal Check
  • Financing through CareCredit

  • Credit Cards – We accept MasterCard, VISA, American Express and Discover
