This agreement is to inform you of your financial obligation to our practice. Please understand that payment of your bill is considered a part of your treatment. We are committed to providing you with the most comprehensive dental care using only the highest quality materials and technology available in the market today. We are also committed to providing you with up-to-date information and educational tools so that you may fully participate in maintaining optimum oral health.
All charges you incur are your responsibility regardless of any insurance coverage or benefit plan that may assist you in completing your dental treatment. Additionally, our practice will charge you a fee of $75 for appointments that you do not keep and for appointments that you do not cancel with 48-hour notice.
We must emphasize that as your dental care provider, our relationship is with you, our patient, not with your insurance company. As a courtesy to you we will complete your insurance claims and submit to your insurance for payment. In order for our practice to seek reimbursement from your insurance company, we ask that you please provide us with all insurance information needed.
