You are strongly advised to CALL your insurer at their customer service telephone number to verify that you will have coverage at this office.
We aim to assist and provide information as accurately as possible but it is challenging because there is so much variability in coverage between plans. Any treatment or portion that is not covered by insurance is the responsibility of the patient to pay. Please take an active role in understanding your insurance to avoid any misunderstandings! If you need assistance please give us a call.
If you are currently without dental insurance - call us for information on the fees we charge.
