As a condition of your treatment by this office, financial arrangements must be made in advance. The practice depends upon reimbursement from the patients for the costs incurred in their care and financial responsibility on the part of each patient must be determined before treatment.
All emergency dental services, or any dental services performed without previous financial arrangements, must be paid for in cash at the time services are performed.
Patients who carry dental insurance understand that all dental services furnished are charged directly to the patient and that he or she is personally responsible for payment of all dental services. This office will help prepare the patients insurance forms or assist in making collections from insurance companies and will credit any such collections to the patient's account. However, this dental office cannot render services on the assumption that our charges will be paid by an insurance company.
A service charge of 1½% per month (18% per annum) on the unpaid balance will be charged on all accounts exceeding 60 days, unless previously written financial arrangements are satisfied.
I understand that the fee estimate listed for this dental care can only be extended for a period of six months from the date of the patient examination.
In consideration for the professional services rendered to me, or at my request, by the Doctor, I agree to pay therefore the reasonable value of said services to said Doctor, or his assignee, at the time said services are rendered, or within five (5) days of billing if credit shall be extended. I further agree that the reasonable value of said services shall be as billed unless objected to, by me, in writing, within the time for payment thereof. I further agree that a waiver of any breach of any time or condition hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any further term or condition and I further agree to pay all costs and reasonable attorney fees if suit be instituted hereunder.
I grant my permission to you or your assignee, to telephone me at home or at my work to discuss matters related to this form.
I have read the above conditions of treatment and payment and agree to their content.

FINANCIAL & APPOINTMENT POLICY
We are committed to providing you with the best possible care and to a trusting partnership with you in your dental care. Your clear understanding of our Financial and Appointment Policy is important to our professional relationship. Please ask if you have any question about our fees, Financial and Appointment Policy, or your responsibility at any time.
Your Payment is due at the time of treatment Payment for treatment is due at the time services are rendered. Prepayment for all laboratory fabricated dental treatment is required (crowns, onlays, bridges, dentures, etc.). We accept most major credit cards, personal check, money orders or cash. If you prefer a deferred payment option we offer Care Credit, simply ask for a short application and/or apply online.
Dental Benefits (Insurance) – We go the extra mile If you have dental benefits, we will make a good faith estimate of your benefits and defer billing you for that amount for up to 60 days. As a courtesy to you, we will file the appropriate claim forms with your dental benefit company. We will also track your dental claims, follow-up with your benefit provider when claims are not processed in a timely manner and attempt to expedite payment. We are also happy to provide your benefit carrier with x-rays or other information they may require in accordance with the Health Insurance Portability & Accountability Act (HIPAA).
If your dental benefit carrier denies coverage, or if we otherwise do not receive payment within 60 days from filing your claim, the amount will then become due and payable by you. Remember that your coverage is a contract between you and your benefits carrier and/or your employer and your benefits provider. We will make every attempt to assist you in obtaining any benefits due you by your dental benefit provider.
For all Patients: Please help us to serve you, and our other patients, by keeping your scheduled appointments. We do require at least 48 HOURS NOTICE for any scheduling changes to avoid an appointment charge. To help compensate the cost of lost appointments, there will be a broken appointment charge of $50.00 per each half hour of scheduled time.
I understand that any delinquent balances are subject to a Finance Charge of 1% every month until balance is paid in full. Regardless of dental benefit coverage, I am responsible for the entire fee for any treatment rendered and any related expenses. I understand that I am responsible to pay reasonable attorney’s fees and collection expenses incurred and expended in the event should my account be referred to an attorney or agency for collection.
Assignment and release: I authorize payment to be made directly to the dentist by my dental benefit company. I accept financial responsibility for all services whether covered or not by my dental benefit provider and I authorize release of any dental or medical care information requested by my benefit carrier.
Thank you for understanding our Financial & Appointment Policy. Please let us know if you have any questions.
