We make every effort to provide you with the finest care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this we work hand-in-hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures. If you have any concerns or questions, please ask our experienced staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. They can be reached by phone at 301-493-4496.
Fortunately, our trained staff can help you determine what your coverage might be. However, payments from insurance companies can sometimes be unpredictable. Generally, even if you have dental insurance coverage, we ask for at least 30% of the fee to be paid prior to treatment. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. If your insurance carrier paid more than expected, you will receive a check for the difference.
Occasionally a tooth which has had endodontic treatment may require retreatment, surgery or even extraction, any of which, and any subsequent treatment, will be the financial responsibility of the patient. Although unlikely, during the course of treatment, the crown, porcelain or restoration can be damaged or require replacement. This is the sole financial responsibility of the patient.
