DISCLAIMER: By typing your name below, you are signing this application electronically. You agree that your electronic signature is the legal equivalent of your manual signature on this application.
Patients with insurance coverage: As a courtesy, a claim is filed with your dental insurance company using information you provide us. Therefore, you must provide accurate information; a fee is charged for resubmitting a claim when incorrect information is provided. Insurance has limitations, restrictions and partial coverage for most dental services; example: fluoride treatment, sealant, resin/white filling, crown. Without exceptions, payment is required at the time of service for patient portion – deductible, co-pay amounts. Please note that we can only estimate the patient portion – it is not the exact amount you owe. The exact patient portion will be known only after the claim is processed by your insurance, and a statement is then mailed to you for any balance amount.
Patients without insurance coverage: Treatment plan with estimate of fees is provided prior to starting dental treatment. Without exceptions, full payment is required at the time of service.
Minor patients: Both parents or guardians are financially responsible for full payment at the time of visit. In the case of divorced or separated parents, both parents are responsible for full payment, without any exceptions.
Payment methods: Cash, check, debit, and credit cards: MasterCard and Visa, Discover and American Express.
Returned checks: $40.00 charge applies when a check is returned by the bank due to insufficient funds.
Finance charge: After a dental claim is processed by insurance, a statement is mailed to the address on record for the remaining balance. Payment is expected within 25 days of the statement date, to avoid 1.5% monthly finance charge
