If you have dental insurance…
So that we are able to give you an estimated breakdown of your dental insurance benefits at the time of your appointment, please be prepared to give us your Insurance Company name, date of birth, policy, group and telephone numbers. This information is generally found on your insurance card.
Insurance
There has been a steady increase in the dental plans offered by employers and we will do our best to maximize your benefits. Dental insurance is not designed to cover the entire cost of treatment, but rather to be a partial aid as you encounter costs. If you have insurance we will submit the claim, however, you are responsible for what the insurance does not cover.

A few important notes to remember that will help expedite the processing of your claim:

  1. There are a variety of dental plans, each with different benefits, exclusions, limits, pre-determination requirements and other fine print. We suggest you contact your insurance carrier to obtain precise information on your plan before your initial visit.
  2. Insured patients are expected to take care of their portion of the fee as services are rendered. Your eventual reimbursement will be determined by your insurance company.
  3. The ultimate choice of care should be yours – dental plans are often poor guidelines of what is best for each individual patient.
