OFFICE POLICIES

INSURANCE:

  Dr. Turner participates with Delta Dental Premier, MetLife (preferred provider), Traditional Blue Cross, Guardian, Dental Blue 300 and Unicare 300.  As long as your insurance plan does not restrict your choice of dentist, you will be able to use your benefits in our office.  If we are out of network your

co-pay's may be higher. 

For our patients with insurance it is important for you to bring your insurance information with you.  As a courtesy, we will be happy to submit your claim to your insurance carrier for covered charges.  We feel a pre-treatment estimate should be requested from your insurance carrier prior to all major services.

 

FINANCIAL POLICY:

 

  We are committed to providing you the best care possible.  The goal is best achieved if everyone is aware of the financial policy, which is an agreement between the doctor and the patient.  Your clear understanding of the financial policy agreement is important to our professional relationship.

  Payment is required at the time of service, including co-pay and deductible if you have dental insurance coverage.  We cannot predict or guarantee exactly what your insurance will pay.  Any unpaid portion of claims will be your responsibility.  We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard and Discover Card.  Interest free monthly financial arrangements are available for large procedures with a 50% down payment.  If previous payment arrangements are not kept, a monthly late fee will apply.

 

APPOINTMENTS:

  We are an appointment based office.  When you schedule an appointment with us we block a predetermined amount of time for you with the Doctor or Hygienist.  We will do our best to remind you of your upcoming appointment.  We ask for a 24 hour notice from you if you must reschedule your appointment.  If this policy is not respected we reserve the right to charge a cancellation fee. 

 

If you are unable to make appointments in advance we would be happy to place you on our call list for short notice appointments.
