Financial Information

Your child's smile and oral health are a lifetime investment. 

We strive to make it as easy and affordable as possible to receive the best dental care, and we will work with you to make sure you utilize your coverage (if any) for your family's needs. 

As a home for all kids' smiles, we do not turn away any child need of dental care because of their family's financial circumstance. 

At each visit, please provide a copy of your insurance card and ID/driver's license so we can provide the most accurate estimate possible.

Ultimately, insurance companies determine the cost of services and percent covered. Parents/guardians are responsible for payment of services. 

Estimates Prior to Treatment

The cost of treatment depends on your child's individual needs and treatment plan. We will discuss with you the cost of treatment and each of your available payment plan options before your child begins treatment, so that you can make the best choice for your child and your family. Howerver, please understand that estimates are simply estimates, and often insurance companies will not approve coverage until after services have been rendered. 

We strongly encourage you to contact your insurance provider directly to fully understand your specific plan's benefits prior to treatment.
