Most people who have private insurance, have it as part of their group insurance policies and benefits through their employers. The amount and procedures covered vary and we encourage you to obtain full details of your dental plan coverage so you can take full advantage of benefits offered and to avoid unpleasant surprises. Each insurance carrier is different. We will do our best to educate you on what your plan covers so together we can work toward the goal of having a healthy mouth.


We accept most major insurance plans and will gladly process your claim and strive to get you the best coverage possible. Please have your insurance card and driver’s license with you at your first appointment. Insurance policies generally cover only a portion of the total treatment cost. Please remember that your dental insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company, not between your insurance company and our office.

We make no guarantee of any estimated coverage, but we will do our best to ensure that you receive your maximum benefits. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation of fees for treatment provided should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.

If you would like to know what your expected coverage will be, we can submit a pre-authorization estimate (often referred to as pre-determination or PDs) to your insurance company. Your insurer will usually respond and send a detailed explanation of benefits within 4-6 weeks.

Unless other arrangements have been made, we ask that you pay your portion of the bill at the time of treatment. It is your responsibility to pay any balance not paid by your insurance company.

Payment Methods

Checks, credit cards, debit cards and even cash are acceptable in exchange for dental work. Payment Plans can also be arranged. We accept Visa, MasterCard, and Discover.

Many people only go to the dentist when something is wrong. That truly is a shame, because they are missing out on so many preventive services that can save discomfort — and expense — down the road. Regular dental visits are essential to make sure oral health problems — from tooth decay to oral cancer — are detected and treated in a timely manner. Some individuals may need to see the dentist more often than others to stay on top of problems like plaque buildup and gum disease, but everyone should go at least twice per year.

Your regular dental visits will include a thorough oral exam to check the health of your teeth and gums; an oral cancer screening to spot any suspicious signs early; and a professional cleaning, not only to remove unsightly deposits and stains, but more importantly to keep your gums and bone healthy, preventing gingivitis and gum disease. This will make your teeth look and feel great! So don’t miss out on the many benefits dentistry offers you and your family!
