Financial Policies

As a courtesy to our patients, we promptly file your insurance to allow for speedy payment of your benefits. In order to minimize expenses, we request payment for services at the time they are rendered.

Other financial options are as follows:

  • Pay as you go with cash, check, VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.
  • We provide a 5% Senior Citizen courtesy discount for patients age 65 and older.

Insurance Policies

We realize how important insurance benefits are to you. Please realize that insurance benefits are a supplement only. They do not pay for everything. We ask that you carefully review your policy and contact your insurance carrier so that you are aware of your benefits and frequency limitations.

Please realize that dental insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. We will assist you with filing claims promptly and accurately and to help you maximize your benefits. Please be aware that most insurances have annual deductibles and a yearly maximum. Anything over that amount is your responsibility. Please provide us with a copy of your insurance card and benefits book at your initial appointment.

Because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service.

As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After that time, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. Please contact your insurance company directly to find out why payment has been delayed.

If you have any questions, please call our office at 407-894-1100, and our well informed and courteous staff is available to answer them.
