A Word from our Staff…

It is our goal to make your remaining balance simply affordable.

“Do you also take Dental Insurance?”
YES! We accept payments from a number of PPO dental insurers, including Aetna, Cigna, MetLife and United. Other insurers reimburse our patients directly, after they have received care. We may be able to contact your insurance provider in advance, and obtain an estimate of coverage for your specific treatment. There are many types of dental insurance benefits; if you have questions about yours, please contact us. We are happy to help.
“If I have Dental Insurance, will I have to pay for a check-up?”
Did you know that many dental insurance PPO plans do not require a co-payment for preventive dental services such as examinations, and cleaning (prophylaxis)? If you currently have dental insurance but don’t use it, you cannot recover those benefits later. Call us with your specific questions. We can help answer them.
Do you offer payment plans? I am ready to improve my smile now, but I can’t afford to pay for all the dental work I need right away.
YES – We offer several types of payment plans! And we understand your concerns about cost, particularly in these times. Quality dentistry is a vital investment, with immediate and long-term permanent benefits for your comfort, health and your appearance. We gladly accept Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards. If you require affordable monthly payments, we have partnered with CitiHealth and Care Credit to offer 6 and 12-month, 0% interest payment plans.
