We recommend that preschool children are seen in the morning because they are more relaxed, we are able to work more slowly with them and make them more comfortable. School age children with extensive treatment needs are seen in the morning for the same reason. Excused absence forms explaining that dental treatment is medically necessary will be provided. We can keep missing school to a minimum when regular dental care is continued.
Children in higher grades will be given preference for appointments in the off school hours, as they cannot miss school as easily as younger children.
Please recognize that we try to accommodate as many children in the off school hours as possible. Excused absence forms explaining that dental treatment is medically necessary will be provided.
Since appointed times are reserved exclusively for each patient we ask that you please notify our office at least 2 days in advance if you are unable to keep your appointment. Another patient, who needs our care, could be scheduled if we have sufficient time to notify them. We realize that unexpected things can happen, but we ask for your assistance in this regard.
Payment for professional services is due at the time dental treatment is provided. Every effort will be made to provide a treatment plan which fits your timetable and budget, and gives your child the best possible care. We accept cash, personal checks, debit cards, Care Credit financing and most major credit cards.
If we have received all of your insurance information on the day of the appointment, we will be happy to file your claim for you. You must be familiar with your insurance benefits, as we will collect from you the estimated amount insurance is not expected to pay. Your insurance company is required to pay each claim within 30 days of receipt.
