Financial Policy

Your payment for dental services is due on the day of treatment. We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards. Additionally, we offer payment plan options through Care Credit, third party financing. All returned checks will be handled by an out sourced collection company.  All account balances which have not been paid within a 30 day period, including insurance payments, become due by the patient’s responsible party.

Dental Insurance

As  a courtesy, we will file dental insurance benefits for you. However, any deductibles, co-payments, or balances not covered by your  insurance is due on the day of treatment. We are considered “in network” for patients with Delta Dental Premier, United Concordia, and MetLife.

When planning your appointment, please keep in mind that dental insurance is only meant to be a payment aid in receiving dental care.  Please check with your insurance company so you will have a better understanding of what services are covered by your plan. Many patients think that their insurance pays 90%-100% of all dental fees. This is not true. Most plans only pay between 50%-80% of the average total fee. Some pay more, some pay less. Insurance companies set their own fee schedules and each company uses a different set of fees they consider “reasonable”. The percentage paid is usually determined by how much you or  your employer has paid for coverage, or the type of contract your employer has with the insurance company.We are not responsible for what your  insurance pays on a claim. We can only assist you by estimating your portion for the cost of the treatment.

We are a participating provider with  Georgia Medicaid, WellCare, and PeachCare for Kids.
