Patients having the following procedures Implants, Biopsies and Wisdom teeth/Multiple extractions, are expected to pay 50% one week prior to surgery. For patients with no dental insurance 50% will be collected one week prior to surgery and the other 50% at the time of service.

We require at least 24 hour notice for any cancelled appointment. After 3 failed appointments we require a $200 nonrefundable deposit to hold your appointment.
As a courtesy to our insured patients, we submit claims to your insurance company for you. We will help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. In order to do this we need your insurance card and/or insurance policy with you at your first visit.
Any account resulting in a credit balance after insurance adjudication is reviewed by the treating practice will be refunded. All refunds will be made via check, refunds are processed every two weeks.
You must realize that:
All charges you incur are your responsibility regardless of your insurance coverage. Our relationship is with you the patient and not with the insurance company. Your insurance policy is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. We are not a party to that contract.
If your insurance has not paid within 90 days of services rendered, you will need to make full payment to this office and be reimbursed when your insurance company pays. After 90 days the patient is responsible to pursue payment from the insurance company.
