Dental Insurance

We work with almost all dental insurers, including United Concordia (for employees of Comcast, Chevron, and NBC Universal). Please bring your dental coverage card and literature with you to our office at the time of your appointment. We are happy to complete and submit your claim forms. We will answer your insurance questions to the best of our abilities, but we always encourage patients to research the specifics of their individual plans, as they vary tremendously within specific insurance companies and employers.

The purpose of dental insurance is to cover some — but not all — costs. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation, should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. We ask that payment be made during each office visit, unless other arrangements have been made with our staff. Full details are available in our Financial Policy (PDF) . Thank you for your cooperation in this regard. It allows us to keep the costs of providing excellent dentistry down, as well as minimize the need for significant future fee increases.

Payment Options

We accept payment by cash, check, or major credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express). Payment plans through Care Credit are another option for more expensive treatments.

There will be a fee for a broken appointment without 24 hour notice. 

Excellent dentistry doesn’t count for much if it’s beyond your means. We are committed to making your dental needs a reality! Please call our office at (610) 566-3326 during office hours if you have any questions regarding your payment options.
