Scheduling

To schedule an appointment for either treatment or a consultation, please call our office and one of our scheduling coordinators will assist you.  Our business hours are Monday through Friday from 8-5.  We try our best to stay on schedule and truly respect your time.  However, because a specialty endodontic practice provides surgical and emergency care, some situations may occasionally cause a delay.  We appreciate your patience and understanding.

 

Financial

Every attempt is made to keep our costs reasonable and in line with other specialist providers in our geographic region.  Because endodontic treatment is most often provided in either one or two visits, payment is due at the time service is rendered, unless other arrangements have been made in advance.  We accept Cash, Check, Mastercard, Visa, Discover and American Express. Monthly financing is also available through:

Insurance

Your dental benefits are based on the agreement your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier.  Please review the insurance benefit booklet provided by your employer to better understand the benefits they make available as part of your insurance coverage.  The patient payment portion covered for procedures varies depending on the coverage provided by your employer.  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 us.  The estimate is never a guarantee of benefits or the amount that will be paid. We will file all insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients.  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 or greater than the estimate, then you will be billed the difference or issued a credit on the account in the event of an overpayment.

Privacy

Our practice protects patient information by practicing safe HIPAA policies and procedures.  This form, Notice of Privacy Practices, presents the information that federal law requires us to give our patients regarding our privacy practices.
