Our mission is to deliver high quality and comprehensive periodontal services. In order to provide all patients the best investment in dental health, our policies are designed to minimize administrative overhead and costs resulting from payment issues or missed appointments.

Patient Responsibility for Payment at Time of Service

As a condition of your treatment, full payment must be made at the time the services are rendered.


A patient’s insurance policy is a contract between that individual and his or her insurance company. Since we are not a party to any insurance contracts, patients with dental insurance remain personally responsible for full payment at the time dental services are rendered at our office. However, we do help patients maximize any insurance benefits they may have. For example, as a service to patients with insurance coverage, we complete insurance paperwork and submit claims so the patients receive reimbursements directly from their insurance carriers. We also are happy to submit insurance predeterminations for patients, and are always available for consultation about insurance issues. Please note that many dental insurance policies are limited and often only pay for a portion of the procedure(s) a patient may need. Since insurance companies may change benefits, yearly allowances, co-pays, and deductibles at any time, we cannot guarantee the level of your reimbursement from an insurance provider.

Payment Methods

For your convenience we accept cash, check and credit card payments (MasterCard, Visa, and Discover).

Missed Appointments and Cancellations

If you find it necessary to change your appointment time, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance so that time can be given to another patient. We reserve the right to charge for missed appointments at the rate of a normal office visit.
