Dental Insurance:

Our practice participates in a limited number of Preferred Provider Organizations (PPOs). Please keep in mind that most dental procedures require patient copayments. The amount will be determined by your insurance company, depending on your contract and on the procedure performed.
When extensive dental care is necessary, a total fee will be assessed for the case and financial arrangements will be discussed. For major procedures, a predetermination (pretreatment estimate) will be submitted to assess your expected coverage. Note that most cosmetic procedures are not covered by dental insurance. You will find us sensitive to your financial circumstances.
