Dental Insurance

 

 Dental insurance is intended to help offset the costs associated with dental care. The mere thought of out-of-pocket expenses prevents many Americans from receiving routine and necessary dental treatment. To help our patients afford dental treatment, our office participates with  most major PPO dental plans.  Listed below are many of the plans that  we do participate with.  Click on your dental benefit provider's website to learn more about your coverage.

STATEMENT OF FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY

 

Payment is due in full at the time of treatment unless prior arrangements have been approved.

 

If you are covered by an insurance plan, we are happy to file the claims for you. Your deductible and co-payments are due at the time of service.  After 30 days, the balance for  any unpaid claims are your responsibility. 

 

       ----------

 

I authorize the dentist to release any information including the diagnosis and records of treatment or examination for myself to third party insurance carriers, payors and/or healthcare practitioners. I authorize the payment from my insurance carrier to submit payment directly to the dentist or dental practice to be applied directly to any outstanding balance on my account.

 

I understand that I am financially responsible for any outstanding balance for services provided that are not fully covered by insurance, and I may be billed for this remaining balance. I consent and agree to be financially responsible for payment of all services rendered on my behalf or on behalf of my dependents (if any).
