For the first visit to our office payment in full is due for the services provided. Thereafter, other arrangements can be made if needed. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We also offer interest-free monthly payment options through our popular dental credit card, Care Credit, as well as through automatic bank drafts.
We will send you a statement each month reflecting your charges and payments. Most insurance companies will respond to claims within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.
Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees for services provided by our office regardless of your insurance coverage. If you pay in full at the time of your service, we offer a courtesy discount to show our appreciation.
If you have insurance please bring any dental insurance forms and/or cards with you to your appointment. This will help us expedite your reimbursement. Also please keep us abreast of any changes in insurance carriers.

Please keep in mind that dental insurance is structured differently than medical insurance in that there are large variations in co-payments and fee schedule allowances. There is also an annual maximum dollar amount that your insurance company will pay. Dental insurance is similar to medical insurance in that it is a contract between the patient (or employer) and the insurance company. The benefits and maximums are based to a large degree on the premiums which are paid. Decreased benefits typically do not reflect on your best treatment options. Dental insurance was never designed to cover all of your dental needs but rather as an allowance of dollars that may help with some of your costs. Please don’t hesitate to call if you have any questions or concerns. We can be reached by phone at (717)757-3214.
Our treatments are highly individualized and so too are the financial arrangements we have available to our patients. For your convenience we offer a variety of payments options. Out treatment coordinator will work out a plan suited to your individual needs.
