Dental Insurance & Payment

Our office accepts many dental insurances. Our experienced staff is here to answer your billing or insurance questions and help you understand your insurance benefits.

Treatment fee quotes will be honored for three months. If you have a participating dental insurance, we will bill your insurance company. However, due to ongoing insurance contract changes, we will only able to approximate your coverage. If your insurance pays less than expected, any remaining balance will be your responsibility. A finance charge may be applied to overdue accounts.

Payment Options

We accept cash, check, Visa and MasterCard.


CareCredit may help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn't cover. CareCredit offers no interest financing or low minimum monthly payment options. Visit for more info or to apply.
