Payment is expected at the time services are rendered.
For your convenience, we accept most common forms of payment:
- Personal checks
- Credit card
When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office upon your request through CareCredit.
Our office gladly accepts many major PPO insurances.
Please call our office to find out if we participate with your insurance company and plan.
We will be happy to file an electronic eClaim and do everything possible to see that you receive the available benefits of your insurance policy.
If we are not in-network with your insurance plan, we will gladly file a claim on your behalf so that you receive maximum reimbursement from your insurance carrier.
We will also attempt to process all of your claim submissions to help you maximize your insurance benefits.
Dental insurance is different than most medical insurance plans and it is important to be aware of the following:
- Insurance is an agreement between you and your insurance company. The insurance relationship constitutes an agreement between the carrier, the employer, and the patient. Our dental office is not a party to that contract. As such, we can make no guarantee of the estimated coverage or payment. However, our office will do all we can to facilitate claims payment, but we do not have the power to force your insurance company to pay.
- Full dental fees are not always covered. Insurance companies base the amounts they pay on restrictive fee schedules, regardless of what the actual fee may be.
- Not all your care may be covered. Not all dental services that are necessary for proper dental health are a covered benefit in all contracts. This depends on the kind of plan your employer has purchased.
Patients with insurance will be required to provide our office with the necessary information concerning your insurance coverage to allow the correct filing of claims.
Patients are expected to pay any insurance co-pays at the time of treatment.
In the event the exact covered amounts are unavailable, an estimated co-pay will be determined based on available benefits information and coverages and this will be adjusted when the claim has been processed.
Dr. Shah is a compassionate, caring, skilled dentist. I am not a fan of going to the dentist (any dentist), but Dr. Shah always takes the time to make me feel at ease. He recently gave my smile a much needed makeover with 5 porcelain crowns and I couldn't be happier.
Great service from the entire office. Scheduling is always a positive experience, cleanings are fast and effective and more-involved services are always conducted pain free. I also appreciate that Dr. Shah takes time to speak with you and set you at ease. Insurance and billing are always addressed in a timely manner. I would recommend this practice to everyone!
