Financial & Insurance

Pediatric Specialtists providing treatment you can afford

Finance

It is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality dental care. 

If you provide us with your complete dental insurance information, we will be happy to submit claims to your insurance on your behalf.   If you do not have dental insurance, we will collect payment at your child’s appointment. 

Our office accepts payments by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards. For extended payment options, we accept CareCredit. If you have any questions about financing or payment, please ask and we will explain your choices and work hard to accommodate your needs.


Insurance

Dental insurance cards should be presented at each appointment. If you have provided us with your complete dental insurance information, we will submit claims for you, and attempt to help you receive your full dental insurance benefits.

It is recommended that children have a dental exam, dental cleaning and fluoride treatment every 6 months.  It is recommended that children have dental x-rays yearly, or more often if there is potential decay.  If treatment is needed, our dentists use a tooth colored filling material (composite) for all fillings, rather than silver (amalgam) fillings.  These services may not be a covered benefit by your dental insurance plan.  Percentage of treatment covered, your coverage year, and maximum coverage also vary among different dental insurance companies and plans. Each dental insurance company has an allowed amount for each procedure. This amount may not be the same as our fee.

Our office will collect portion of our dental fees at your child’s treatment appointment. This amount is based on estimates of what we believe your insurance will pay, but your final amount due will be determined upon receipt of payment from your dental insurance.

Any amount not covered by your dental insurance will be your responsibility. We recommend you review your dental benefits with your insurance company prior to scheduling. While we are happy to help utilize your dental insurance benefits, you are personally responsible for your account balance.
