How to pay for your dental treatment
We accept Cash, Checks, Debit/Credit cards and Care Credit. If you are using insurance, your co-pays are due on the date of service.
Most dental insurances have a deductible and/or percentage copay for each service category. Call or visit us to get your insurance coverage explained.
What to expect from your insurance
We are contracted with most major dental carriers including Ameritas, Cigna, Delta Dental, Dentemax, Metlife, United Concordia, United Healthcare and several others. We also accept Medicaid, NC Health Choice and Medicare that includes dental.
Each company will have their own guidelines about what and how much they pay. Our office can verify your insurance and help you understand what they will cover. We are happy to file your insurance for you; however, please be aware that we cannot guarantee what your insurance will pay.
If your insurance requires you to pay a copay, it will be due at the time of your dental visit. When major procedures require more than one visit, you may pay 1/2 at the beginning of treatment and the remainder when treatment is complete.
Guidelines for your child's dental visit
It is recommended that most children begin seeing the dentist when they develop teeth or at the age of 3. Hopefully this will prevent fears or phobias in the future. Should your child experience any dental problems prior to the recommended age of 3, he/she should seek dental attention from a child dental specialist - a pediodontist.
Most children will begin to lose teeth between the ages of 6-7 up to ages of 10-12.
Have you noticed your child's permanent teeth coming in behind the baby teeth? This condition is common and often fixes itself over time. On other occasions, the dentist may need to remove the teeth to help make room for the permanent teeth.
Children under the age of 18 must have a parent or guardian to complete dental patient information and consent for treatment.
Parent or guardian should always be in office with minor children.
Treatment areas are reserved for patient and/or accompanied by one parent or guardian.
