Dental Insurance & Financing

We understand that money doesn’t grow on trees. Quality dental care is important for you and your family and we don’t want you to worry about how you’re going to pay for it. That’s why we’ve developed several payment options for you. We accept most dental insurance plans and our finance experts will file your insurance claim for you.

You may be able to use your own dental insurance if you have a policy that allows you to choose your own dentist. If this is the case, we are happy to file your insurance claims for you so that you can be reimbursed by your insurance company. If you have any questions, please call us and ask for a treatment coordinator to make sure that we work with your plan. Our treatment coordinators are experienced in making the most of your insurance, we’ll even file claims for you, saving you time and hassle.
