Advanced Oral Specialty Group – Financial Policy
Our mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive dental implant and periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined our payment policy. Most of our patients want to understand their financial obligations for dental services before treatment begins so that they can plan their finances accordingly.
First Visit/Emergency/Single Visit Payments
For initial examinations as well as all single visit procedures, our policy is that payment is due in full at the time of service regardless of insurance coverage. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, money orders and the following credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. We are happy to file your insurance paperwork in a timely manner on your behalf. However, any insurance reimbursement will be sent directly to you by your insurance company. Your insurance reimbursement is based on a contract between you and/or your employer and your insurance carrier. Our office has no involvement in that contractual relationship. For those individuals who would prefer special payment terms, outside financing is available with Wells Fargo, Care Credit and Lending Club through our office for those with approved credit.
Multiple Visit Payment Options
For all treatment requiring more than one visit, you will be able to meet with one of our Treatment Coordinators. They will provide you with your exact fees in advance of any treatment. They will review the following payment information with you. It is always possible to pay the total amount due in advance of treatment. Payment may be made by cash, check or credit card. For those individuals who would prefer a special payment term, outside financing is available with Wells Fargo, Care Credit and Lending Club through our office for those with approved credit.
When Dr. Meltzer performs surgery, or when the hygiene department schedules root planning, a surgical room deposit is required when the appointment is scheduled. This is a non-refundable deposit should the appointment be changed or cancelled without 3 business days notice. The deposit is calculated as 25% of the total per visit fee, rounded off to the nearest hundred dollars. The balance is due at the time of treatment. If you have dental insurance, we will be happy to file a dental claim with your insurer so that benefits can be sent directly to you. Your insurance reimbursement is based on a contract between you and/or your employer and your insurance carrier. Our office has no involvement in that contractual relationship.
For those individuals who would prefer an extended payment plan, outside financing is available with Wells Fargo, Care Credit and Lending Club through our office.
