How to Make a Payment?
We accept most dental plans at our office. As a courtesy, our office will assist you with the benefits claims. On the day of dental service, we will collect the annual deductible and estimated co-pay decided by your dental insurance company. Any amount that is not covered by the dental insurance will be billed to patients after we receive payments from the insurance company. We accept Visa, Master Card, personal checks, and cash for payment.
For patients who receive dental treatment under general anesthesia, there will be a separate fee that you pay directly to the anesthesiologist on the day of anesthesia. The anesthesiologist will assist you upon your request to file a claim to your medical insurance company.
We will collect the full amount for dental treatment on the same day of service and send a claim to the dental insurance company on behalf of you. In most cases, parents will receive reimbursement from the dental insurance company within two months.
All dental benefit plans differ in their fee schedules and the amounts of coverage. The coverage ranges from 0% by one carrier to 100% by another for the same dental procedure. In addition, dental benefits carriers have different annual maximal allowable coverage and an annual deductible. It is often difficult to have the correct estimate on the patent’s out-of-pocket expense before treatment is performed; however, our billing staff are always doing their best to find out the most information from the benefits carrier, so you can make a comfortable decision about your child’s dental care.
After your appointment, we submit a claim to your benefits carrier. The dental benefits carrier will then decide your out-of-pocket fee and send you an EOB (Explanation of Benefits) to inform you of the details.
