Will you file my insurance?
As long as your insurance policy allows you to go to any office of your choice, we can file your insurance claim. You are responsible for your anticipated portion, such as deductible or co-pay, at the time of your appointment. If your insurance company does not pay the anticipated portion, or does not pay in a reasonable amount of time, you will be responsible for the balance.

Can I have treatment after my recent medical treatment?
If you are receiving dental treatment and have a heart murmur, mitral-valve prolapse, or any replaced heart valves or joints; the American Heart Association does mandate an antibiotic be taken one hour prior to receiving dental treatment. Please make us aware of any changes to your health prior to your dental treatment in case these precautions apply to you.
Can I make payments?
Payment is expected at the time services are rendered (minus any estimated insurance portion). If your treatment will take multiple appointments, then we will schedule your payments over the course of those appointments.
