DO YOU TAKE MY INSURANCE?
- We do not accept insurance assignments anymore, because we want to make available qualtiy dental care to everyone equally without sacrificing the quality of
materials and quality time between patient and doctor.
- Participating and accepting insurance create disparate access to dental care for those without insurance and poor dental coverage plans.
- We still submit the claims as well as pretreatment estimates to your insurance complany electronically at no cost to you. And the insurance company will send
you directly their share of responsibility for your dental treatment. If you see that the reimbursement amount is different than the pretreatment estimate the insurance initially gave, you can let us
know right away to help with contacting your insurance company promptly. There are statue of limitations in time for the discrepancies in your reimbursement your insurance company. It is quicker for
one person to find the discrepancies for one's reimbursement, because one person monitoring one reimbursement at a time is more effective than one person or one dental office monitoring hundreds and
thousands of reimbursements from insurance companies.
- We only collect for the procedures that was done when you visit.
- If the dental procedure you really need is more than what you are comfortable paying for the visit, you can use Care Credit financing. It always allow no

WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY WHEN I HAVE DENTAL INSURANCE?
- Dental insurance is actually not an insuirance, but a
dental benefit plan. Also, it is only a form of financeial assistance to help with the expense of dental care.
- Some plans require that annual deductibles is paid by
you first to get the benefit of the dental insurance plan you bought.
- Dental benefit plans usually pay 80%-100% of preventive care such as
dental exams, dental x-rays, dental cleanings, and dental sealants. However, if you have a dental problem, such as a cavity or missing teeth, your plan will only pay 50-80% of the cost.
This is called the co-insurance or co-payment for the treatment procedures. The cost of treatment that is outstanding after your insurance company pays is still your
- Dental benefit plans usually have limitations such as how often the insurance company
will pay for common procedures, such as dental examination, dental x-rays, dental cleanings. Older dental benefit plans will pay for only 2 exams, 2 x-rays, and 2 cleanings per year. It
does not mean you only need 2 exams. There may be times where you need exams more than twice such as going to a specialist for a consultation. However, if the insurance company sees that they
already paid out for two exams, they will put the responsibility of the cost of the exam entirely on you.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A DISCOUNT PLAN AND DENTAL
- DISCOUNT PLANS is where pay the insurance company to get a list of their con tracted netowrk dentistis where you can get dental treatment for a lower fee. The
subscriber pays for all dental treatment, including dental exams and dental cleanings, to the dentist at the time of the visit. For those treatments that are not negotiated by the insurance
company with their contracted dentist, you will be responsible for the dentist's full fee. With discount plans, insurance company does not pay anything toward your treatment as it would if it
was a true dental insurance benefit plan.
I HAVE TWO DENTAL INSURANCES, DO I STILL HAVE T0 PAY
- If you have two dental insurance, it does not mean you
have no out-of-pocket expense. On the contrary, you still have out-of-pocket expense 99.99% of the time after the secondary insurance pays out. There are times when the secondary
insurance will pay nothing out on your treatment but reduces your annual benefit with the secondary insurance by the amount the primary insurance paid out.
