If you have dental insurance, we want you to receive the full benefit of it. Our office staff can assist you in completing your insurance forms and verifying coverage that your particular program provides. We file claims electronically. However, we are not "in network" for any insurance company and we do not accept DHMOs. (Why? Because, despite what they tell you, they drive costs up and quality down. Also, their contracts will dictate what treatment we can and cannot provide. They are not dental experts, and their policies are to ensure that they are profitable. Our patients come first, not their insurance companies!) This means that you are responsible for your deductible and the portion that the insurance does not cover, at the time that you see the doctor. Remember that you are responsible for the account if the insurance, for any reason, does not honor their commitment to you and to us.
