Financial Policy

Our doctors and staff are proud to be a team whose primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure you that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined our payment policy. In order for our office to serve you better, there will be a $75.00 charge for missed exams/cleanings and a $175.00 charge for missed surgical appointments.  You must cancel your appointment at least 24 hours in advance for exams and cleanings and 48 hours in advance for surgical procedure, or it will be treated as a missed appointment.

Emergency/Single-Visit Payments

For single-visit procedures, our policy is that payment is due in full at the time of service. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express).

Multiple Visit Payment Options    

Option 1: Full Payment at Time of Service – 5 percent fee reduction for payment before treatment is rendered for patients that do not have insurance.

Selection of this option gives you the maximum savings on the cost of your treatment plan because the billing expenses we save are passed on to you in the form of a 5 percent discount. Your Treatment Coordinator will provide you with specific details.

Option 2: Open Account Payment Plans – Treatment fees divided into two or three equal payments. This option is for patients who has established a good payment history.

For individuals desiring a more flexible payment plan, the open account plan may be the best choice. This plan allows for three equal payments to be paid out over a period of three months.  The first payment of one-third is due at the time of treatment, the second payment is due one month after treatment, and the third and final payment is due two months after treatment.
After ninety days without payment, a finance charge will be imposed to the account.  We compute the finance charge on your account by applying the annual percentage rate to the total amount to be financed.  After ninety five days without payment, the account will be considered in default.  Upon default, the entire balance shall become immediately due and payable, including all attorneys and collection fees and charges.  Should your account be placed with an outside agency, a $35.00 collection fee will be charged to your account.  Any patient with unpaid balances that have been forwarded to a collection agency will NOT receive services unless the balance has been paid in full or unless emergency care is needed.

Option 3: Outside Financing – For those who would prefer an extended payment plan

For your convenience, we offer three outside financing, Care Credit and Citi Health Financial and SpringStone Financial.  Applications are available in office for your convenience. Please call if you have any questions or concerns regarding your initial visit.
