Dental Insurance is different from Medical Insurance.  Many patients aren’t familiar with the specifics of their dental insurance benefits.  Insurance benefits are based on the agreement your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier, not your dentist. Please review the insurance booklet provided by your employer to better understand your insurance benefits.

An estimate of the amount covered by your insurance company will be provided at the time of your treatment, based on the information they provide to our office. The estimate is never a guarantee of benefits, or the amount that will be paid.  As a courtesy, we will file all insurance claims to your insurance.  This does not however, transfer the responsibility of your financial obligation to the insurance company.  If the amount paid by the insurance company is less than anticipated, you are financially responsible for the difference.  Each patient is responsible for paying for the deductible and co-payments on the day treatment is rendered.
