Financial Policies

It is often incorrectly assumed by many that periodontal care and treatment is unaffordable. Our office is dedicated to helping patients find the best resources to alleviate the financial stress of caring for your periodontal health. We pride ourselves on our fair, honest, and transparent pricing and treatment recommendations.

We will speak to you about your financial responsibility prior to beginning treatment. After an initial consultation, our staff will review with you our recommended treatment plan and its projected cost.

We are contracted with the majority of PPO and HMO insurance policies. As ‘in-network’ providers, your recommended treatment will often be more affordable at our office compared to treatment at ‘out-of-network’ providers. Our staff are trained to maximize your insurance benefits, so your recommended treatment comes at the lowest out-of-pocket costs possible. It is important to understand that in the case your insurance pays less than expected, you are ultimately responsible for the cost of treatment. Our treatment coordinator will discuss your estimated insurance benefits during your initial consultation. Upon request, we are happy to submit a pre-authorization to your insurance, so your treatment is approved prior to starting any procedures.

Unless financial agreements are arranged prior to treatment start date, payment is due the day the treatment is completed. We offer several convenient payment methods. We accept cash, personal checks, and all major credit and debit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover). We also are providers with Care Credit and Lendingclub, which offer promotional financing options for larger treatment plans. Through Care Credit and Lendingclub, many patients enjoy interest-free payment plans for up to 12 months. Our treatment coordinator is available to discuss financial arrangements and help you find the method of payment that best meets your financial needs.
