Dollars & Sense

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans, and file the necessary papers to the insurance company. We work hard to make dental care affordable and to make sure that you realize your insurance benefits.


In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:

  • If you have dental insurance, we will submit a claim to them for before requesting payment from you.  Anything not covered by insurance will be the patients responsibility. We a participating provider with Delta Dental, United Concordia, and UPMC Dental; and we will accept other dental insurances. Please contact the office if you have any question.
  • If you do not have dental insurance, we expect payment on the first visit. We also offer CareCredit, a special dental financing option. To fit your individual needs for extensive treatments, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA, DISCOVER, and MASTERCARD.


If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and patients are responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
