Payment Policy

We understand that your smile is as important to you as it is to us. In an effort to help our patients reach their dental needs both physically and financially, we will assist you in reaching a comfortable financial solution that will fit your situation and financial budget.

Our payment options include CHECKS, VISA, MASTERCARD and CareCredit.

Sadly, even those with dental insurance can be left hanging. The fact of the matter is, many dental services aren't covered by insurance. CareCredit can help you achieve a healthy smile with special financing options, whether you have insurance or not. You can get your dental care promptly with the healthcare credit card designed for your health, beauty and wellness needs. You can also use CareCredit for the follow-up appointments. We offer an "in office" application for CreditCredit. The application and response takes less than 5 minutes.

Your dental insurance is a product designed by your employer. Your benefits are dictated by the choices your employer made within the cost of the coverage. We will do everything possible to maximize your insurance utilization; however, please do not let the lack of benefits dictate your desired or necessary treatment.

Take charge of your dental health! We will be happy to answer any questions or concerns regarding your treatment and insurance coverage.

Do you need dental work done? Do you need a regular cleaning or are you looking for a brand new smile? Requesting an appointment is available online 24/7 and is as simple as submitting a form.
