Financing & Insurance

Financial Policy

Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available. An important part of this mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable for our patients as possible.

Dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual’s well being, both medical and psychological. Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this important health service. Payment is due at the time service is rendered, however, being sensitive to the fact that people have different needs of fulfilling their financial obligations, we are providing the following financial options:

  1. Cash – includes money orders and personal checks.
  2. Visa/MasterCard/Discover – we accept credit cards as payment for treatment.
  3. CareCredit® – patient payment plans that allow you to pay over time with convenient low minimum monthly payments. With CareCredit, you enjoy these benefits:
    • Flexible financing options
    • No annual fees or prepayment penalties
    • Quick and easy application
    • Receive a credit decision almost immediately
    • Start your recommended treatment immediately
  4. In-House Financing – We cannot offer in-house financing for a period longer than 3 months. If it is necessary to extend your payments for 3 months a credit card # and exact date for transaction will be required. These arrangements will be set up through our financial coordinator. After 60 days all accounts will be subject to a Monthly Finance Charge of 1.75% of the unpaid balance.
  5. Prepayment – If you are not able to make payment in full within 3 months you may make payments in advance and then schedule your treatment when financial obligations can be met.


Our policy on appointments that are either missed or cancelled without 48 hour notification is as follows:

  • First offense
    • Letter sent
  • Second offense
    • Fee of $40 for one hour appointment scheduled.
