How can we help you?
We are happy to answer questions about our services and procedures.
These are a selection of some common questions that patients have. If your question isn't answered here, please contact our office. It's important to us that our patients understand their dental care.
We will always do our best to give you an accurate quote prior to your next appointment. The quote is based on any prior knowledge that we have regarding your treatment need and any insurance coverage that you have. There may be instances where the treatment needs change or there are changes in insurance coverage, so the actual fee may vary. In questionable situations where insurance is involved (particularly with large cases), we may need to send a prior authorization request to your insurance so that we will be able to give you the most accurate quote. Remember, if your insurance coverage changes, let us know as soon as possible so that we can calculate your cost accurately!
Every insurance plan is different. Dental insurance is a benefit that often provides coverage for many dental procedures, but only your dentist knows what is truly the best treatment for your particular tooth or situation. Our staff will work with you and your insurance to help you get the most benefit from your specific insurance plan, but keep in mind that your insurance company does not know you or your mouth, and the coverage of a procedure is often determined by a list of rules that may not even pertain to your specific situation. Our experienced staff will always try to inform you up front about any out-of-pocket expenses that you may incur for your treatment.
