Payments & Insurance


We Accept Most Insurance Plans

Our office accepts most major insurance plans. Our staff is well-versed in the latest coverage trends and we are more than happy to discuss specifics of your insurance prior to treatment you may undergo.

"Usual and Customary" Fees

Occasionally, patients are confused about the role the insurance carrier plays in their treatment and payment of benefits. It is not the role or the insurance company to determine what the fee should be, or what the best treatment should be for you. The insurance company is obligated to pay for the treatment in the manner that was advertised to you (or your employer) at the time the policy was sold.

Conflicts sometimes arise when the insurance company advertises that it pays 100% of the charges and then pays less than that by saying that the dentist fees are higher than "Usual and Customary". Our office regularly submit our fees for approval with Delta Dental, whose membership includes 90% of dentist in our state.

Our Administrative Staff is Here to Help

Our administrative team will be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding your own insurance policy, as well as our practice's policies and procedures. We only ask that you give us a few small details regarding your insurance policy and we will take it from there.

If we don't have an immediate answer, we will research the specifics of your individual policy and advise you. You will leave our office well informed, with all of your financial questions answered.
