What are the options available for payment of fees in your office? Do you have payment plans?
We always try to work with you to find a solution that allows you to get the care you want and stay within you means. We often phase treatment over time, prioritizing the most needed treatments first, and if necessary delaying smaller problems or more elective procedures till some later date. We accept Visa and Mastercard, and provide a 5% courtesy discount for payment in full on the day of treatment. For patients who would like to have a payment plan, we are able to offer 3-month payment plans in office, and we also accept Care Credit if a longer payment schedule is needed. Many patients already have Care Credit cards, or we are also able to help you apply for your account if you prefer to have one. Even with dental insurance, most procedures have anywhere from 20-50% patient share amounts, and if you have no dental insurance at all, you have lots of company.

We have always kept our fees in line with the average community fees, and set out fees according to time and quality of care. We use essentially one basic fee schedule, which has been designed so that un-insured patients do not have to pay a premium or pay a “penalty” by higher fees due to lack of insurance coverage (which is pretty much how it works everywhere if you don’t have medical insurance and end up being charged twice as much because of it!) We always strive to treat patients fairly and respect their financial as well as dental needs, and promise to work with you in the journey to a comfortable and Healthy Smile.
