Payment Methods: 

We offer several finance options:

Insurance: We accept most insurance plans.  As a courtesy to our patients we do file dental claims.  Unfortunately, due to the constant change in dental insurance coverage we are only able to estimate the insurance portion.  If the insurance pays more or less than expected we will adjust the account accordingly. Patients are responsible for making us aware of any changes in insurance. Patients are also responsible for any unpaid balance not covered by their Insurance

Blue Cross Blue Shield,  Delta Dental,  Cigna,  United HealthCare *subject to change  Unum Dental,  Colonial Life,  Always Care,  Starmount,  United Concordia,  Assurant,  Aetna  and Sunlife.
