Financial and Insurance Information
Appointment, Exams and Consultations
If you are a first-time patient, we will schedule you first for a comprehensive exam or consultation. We will review your medical and dental histories, your priorities and concerns and create a treatment plan. Most regular appointments consist of a checkup and a professional cleaning. If we find any decay, tooth damage or gum disease we will notify you promptly. If you have a dental emergency, we will address your concerns as soon as possible. After we develop an appropriate treatment plan, including alternatives for care, our business office team will provide you with a detailed list of fees for service, including estimated out-of-pocket expenses.
Financial and Insurance
At Eastside Dental Clinic we recognize that communication between staff, providers and patients is the key to successful outcomes. We also understand that the financial side of dental care can be confusing. To assist in achieving dental wellness we have fostered excellent working relationships with insurance companies. Above all else, we want you to have a clear understanding of your financial and insurance options, as well as your patient responsibilities.
Insurance and Patient Co-payments
Dental insurance can play an important role in your treatment fees. Although dental benefits have become increasingly a supplement only, it is still essential for both new patients and patients of record to correctly fill out, or update as appropriate, all paperwork to allow better estimates of fees and co-pays. Please contact our staff prior to your appointment, during your exam or consultation to learn more about your benefits and our financial policy.
Because we are opt-out Medicare providers, Medicare restricts us from submitting to them. However, we do offer multiple payment options; including cash, checks, most credit cards and CareCredit, for those that qualify.
