Dental Insurance & Payment:

Dental insurance is more than a job benefit. It is a way to ensure you and your family can affordably receive regular visits to the family dentist. Dental insurance allows you to correct dental problems at a low cost, and also means you can keep your teeth and mouth in their healthiest condition at a smaller cost to you. Using your insurance benefits for prevention can help you reduce the pain of serious conditions and control the long-term costs of good dental health.

We will prepare and submit your insurance claim and expect payment within one month. The responsibility rests with you for the payment. We request payment of deductibles and co-payments at the time of your visit. We accept cash, and checks.

We are also willing to discuss payment plans with you.


To reserve ample time for your visit, we prefer to see patients by appointment. To accommodate your busy schedule, we strive to stay on time for your appointment. If, for some reason, you aren't able to keep your appointment, please call our office to reschedule. If possible, we would appreciate 24 hours advance notice if you are unable to keep your appointment.

If you have an emergency or are in pain, please call our office and we will promptly work you into the day's schedule.
