Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing Amazing Smiles. Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available. An important part of the mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable for our patients as possible by offering several payment options.

Payment Options:

You can choose from:

            - Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card

We offer a 5% courtesy accounting adjustment to patients who pay for their treatment with cash prior to completion of care for treatment plans of $500 or more.

- Convenient Monthly Payment Options¹ from CareCredit Healthcare Credit Card

o    Allow you to pay over time

o    No annual fees or pre-payment penalties

Please note:

Amazing Smiles requires payment at the beginning of your treatment. If you choose to discontinue care before treatment is complete, your refund will be determined upon review of your case.

For larger, more comprehensive treatment plans of $1000 or more, a 20% deposit is required to secure your initial treatment appointment.

We accept and file all insurances; however, we are only in network with Delta Dental insurance.

For patients with dental insurance we are happy to work with your carrier to maximize your benefit and directly bill them for reimbursement for your treatment.²

A fee of $25 is charged for patients who miss or cancel more than 3 times in a calendar year without 24-hour notice.

Amazing Smiles charges $30 for returned checks.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help you get the dentistry you want or need.

¹Subject to credit approval

²However, if we do not receive payment from your insurance carrier within 90 days, you will be responsible for payment of your treatment fees and collection of your benefits directly from your insurance carrier.

 
Insurance

As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network.  We are not part of any managed care network.  Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
