Financial Guidelines

Payment for treatment is due and payable the day services are rendered. It is our goal, however, to assist all of our patients in obtaining the dental treatment they deserve. Therefore, we are pleased to offer several payment options. Please read the following carefully, and our financial coordinator will answer any questions you may have and assist you in selecting the appropriate financial plan for your needs.

Appointment Guidelines

In order to serve our patients better, we strive to maintain an efficient, professional dental practice. The philosophy of our practice is not to process a high volume of patients. Rather, we reserve appropriate blocks of time for each of our patients so that the procedures may be completed with close attention to detail and as few interruptions as possible. Missed appointments have a negative effect on our ability to maintain the level of service you deserve. While we are aware that circumstances may arise that may conflict with set appointments, we request two business days notice so that we may attempt to contact other patients awaiting time for treatment

For certain cosmetic and large procedures, your treatment may require an appointment of three or more hours. To ensure that we can provide you with the specialized attention required for these lengthy appointments, a nonrefundable deposit will be required. The entire deposit will be applied to your treatment on the day services are rendered, provided we receive at least a one week notice for your need to reschedule this time.

Thank you for demonstrating your commitment to a mutually respectful relationship by keeping your scheduled appointments.
