About Dental Insurance.
Every dentist must choose the way he or she decides to practice. We have made the choice to see one patient at a time, give them our undivided attention, and allow enough time to do the procedure right – the first time – so there are no return visits to deal with the problems of rushing a procedure in an attempt to see another patient.
Doing dentistry in a safe, healthy, biocompatible way requires a tremendous amount of care, skill, and judgment from the restorative dentist. It requires that our doctors and team members take the highest quality continuing education and implement the most appropriate systems to deliver our dentistry beautifully and predictably.
Being an insurance network provider would not allow us to do that.
Many of our patients have dental insurance which covers a portion of the fees for quality dental services. While most of us have medical insurance policies that evolved from “major medical” insurance, dental insurance plans always have a schedule of fees, based on the average in your area, as well as an annual cap on the maximum reimbursement. Recognize that all insurance companies have different reimbursement allowances based simply on what the employer negotiates with the insurance company.
Your insurance CAN be used here, we will submit the claim for you along with any necessary documentation and they will reimburse you.
We value the relationships and trust developed with our patients and will always provide you with the finest possible care without regard to any limitations of your insurance.
We have many patients who choose our practice despite what their insurance tries to tell them to do.
