Our office is kid friendly and fun. We will have TV monitors at each treatment chair to help a child feel at ease and distract them from the dental noises they may hear. We will use digital x-rays which will appear on the TV monitor soon after they are taken. Children will be excited to see their teeth appear on the monitor. We use easy to understand words to describe the dental procedure, equipment, and instruments being used. By showing, telling, and doing the procedure, the child is educated and made comfortable.
Office and Financial Policies:
Missed appointments without 24 hour prior notification are considered “NO SHOW” appointments and will result in a $55.00 fee.
Late arrival for a scheduled appointment leads to inadequate time to accommodate the remaining patients on the schedule. As such, late arrivals of greater than 10 minutes may not be able to be seen depending on the time available. In addition, those patients who are on the schedule and here at the assigned time will be seen first. We will try to accommodate late appointments if time permits.
Payment Policies and Insurance
For patients without insurance, payment in full is expected for services rendered on that day of service. Major credit cards, checks, and cash are accepted.
For those patients with dental insurance, the office will send claims to the insurance carrier, provided that the insurance card is presented to the office at the time of the visit. Dental insurance may not cover all of the costs of your child’s dental care. Most plans include coinsurance provisions, a deductible, and certain other expenses which must be paid by the responsible party at the time of services.
Any portion of services not covered by dental insurance along with your deductible is due on the day services are rendered. Based on the information from your insurance, we give you an estimate of the total cost to you, however if there is a balance due after insurance pays that will become your responsibility, and is due within 30 days.
We are a Preferred Provider (in network) for Delta Dental, Mutually Preferred, Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Nebraska, United Concordia, Metlife Insurance, and Ameritas Insurance. We will accept and file all other insurances.
Payment plans are available through the Citi Healthcard program. This card provides interest free payment plans. You may apply on the web or ask us for more details. For more information, please visit their website: http://www.citibank.com/us/cards/cardserv/healthcrd/cons_overview.htm
