Payment Policies

Please read the following payment policies carefully, as all patients, whether insured or uninsured, are responsible for the cost of all services rendered.

  • Insured patients will be required to satisfy any co-pay or deductible amounts due at the time of service. After your co-pay or deductible has been satisfied, your insurance company will be billed for the services rendered. Outstanding balances will be billed to you after your insurance company processes your claim.
  • Uninsured patients will pay a $60 charge for the initial evaluation and treatment. After your initial visit, payment in full will be due at each subsequent visit for services rendered.
  • For treatment involving multiple appointments and/or services of a dental laboratory (e.g., crowns, bridges, and partials), a payment of 50% of the service rendered is due at the initial service date, and the remaining balance will be divided into three payments. This balance must be paid in full before the appliance can be delivered.
  • You will be responsible for the cost of all services rendered if we do not accept your insurance. If we do not accept your insurance, a claim will be billed as a courtesy, and your insurance company will reimburse you directly.
  • In the event that your insurance company denies your claim, you are still responsible for the balance of the services rendered. Payment in full will be expected within 30 days of the denial date. Please call our Business Office at 615.327.6776 with additional questions.
