We work for you, not your dental insurance company. Our practice does not diagnose or provide treatment based on dental insurance allowances. Diagnosis and treatment recommendations will be based on the doctors’ judgment and experience, as well as your desires and wishes. Our team will partner with you, giving you the information needed to make the best decision for yourself regarding your dental health.
As a courtesy, our office will make certain each patient receives assistance to maximize their insurance benefits. Many patients experience both confusion and frustration when it comes to understanding and utilizing their dental insurance benefits, especially if extensive dentistry is needed to restore their smile. While dental insurance can provide a foundation for budgeting oral health care expenses, covered procedures can vary widely and the reimbursement to us is often below our actual cost. Please feel free to discuss your particular financial concerns with our office coordinator, Tina.
