Patient payment options

  1.  Pay in full for treatment and receive reimbursement from your insurance company directly. This payment method results in the fastest reimbursement and quickest claim settlement for the patient. Insurance companies will most often reimburse their customers (the patient) faster than they will a third party, such as a dental practice.
  2. Pay the estimated patient portion of the treatment, leaving a credit card on file with our office to cover any remaining balance due after your insurance has paid their portion of the claim. If you have a credit balance, we will promptly issue you a check for your credit. Please note: If the insurance company has not processed the claim within 60 days, the balance is the responsibility of the patient.
  3. Third-party financing is available through Care Credit. You can click the links to apply online and have your line of credit approved prior to treatment.
