How much will my treatment cost?

Healthcare is expensive and paying for dental treatment can be a challenge in may instance, we understand that. We will always explain different treatment options to you and will give you a written treatment plan before doing any procedures.

Having dental insurance can be very helpful, however, it is not designed to pay for all your treatment costs. Instead, it serves as a "coupon" to help you pay for part of the treatment.  And although, dental insurance plans are a private agreement between you and your policy provider, we will help you understand your coverage so you are more informed about your coverage.

Our job is to tell you what we see going on in your mouth and then make treatment recommendations based on the information we have. Your job is to tell us how fast or slow you want to go. We have some patients who want us to get as much done as possible in the same appointment. We have other patients who wish to take it slower, treating one tooth at a time.

Ultimately, you are in charge of your oral health. We want to make sure you are completely comfortable with all recommended treatment before we proceed with anything.

How We Help You With Your Dental Plan
We understand Dental Insurance can be difficult to understand.  So we have created a complimentary guide for our patients (click here) that will help you find out exactly what sort of coverage you have.  Using this guide (click here), you can contact your plan administrator or insurance company and understand the details of your benefits better.

Remember, you are a partner in your oral health. All treatment and care decisions should be made by you and your dentist based upon your actual needs, aside from your dental plan coverage. Your dental plan is not necessarily a treatment plan!
