The major objective of this office is to provide you with the best quality dental care available. This service is based on a friendly and professional understanding between doctor and patient. The following statements are made to acquaint you with our financial policy:
a.) We will be happy to assist you in submitting your insurance claims upon completion of treatment. However, the patient needs to realize that the insurance agreement is between the insurance company and the patient, and not with the doctor. Insurance companies determine usual and customary fees in whatever manner they choose. We request those patients with insurance to pay their respective co-payment at the time of treatment completion. If there is a balance left after the insurance responds, the patient is required to pay that amount.
b.) Patients not having dental insurance will be required to pay for services rendered when treatment is started and completed in a single appointment. For cases requiring multiple visits, ½ of the total fee will be due at the initial visit. Full payment must be made at the completion of treatment.
Please understand that if payment is not made when due, the account may be turned over for collection. You will be responsible for any and all costs associated with the collection procedure, including but not limited to billing costs, collection fees, lawyers’ fees, and court costs.
