CARE COMES FIRST
It is important to understand that dental insurance vastly differs from medical insurance. Medical insurance should ideally cover all your needs, with a yearly maximum out of pocket expense for you, the patient. Dental insurance, on the other hand, has a maximum dollar amount that the insurance will pay for your care. Once it is used up, you are on your own, regardless of whatever else you may need.
In essence, dental insurance is nothing more than a gift certificate provided to you, in a financial agreement between the insurance, your employer, and you. Dentists are not part of that agreement. Furthermore, dental insurances typically restrict your care, in the form of yearly maximums, non covered services or long waiting periods. Their terms also often prevent patients from taking advantages of discounts that we may be offering.
For those reasons, we carefully choose which insurances we want to contract with, although we are happy to accept most of them. If you have insurance, we will work at your behest to maximize your coverage. All estimated copays and deductibles are due in full at the time of service. Remaining balances after the insurance's portion are the patient's responsibility.
We are currently in network with, or are in the last stages of credentialing with:

We are also excited to offer an in house savings plan. Please call or see our Specials page for details!
Please remember, dentistry isn't expensive. Neglect is.
