Payment for services
1. If you do not have insurance, payment for treatment is due at the time of service.
We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express as well as checks or cash. If you have questions or concerns regarding the cost of treatment please ask our front office staff. We are happy to discuss the cost of treatment, your payment due and options for payment with you.

2. If you have insurance we will be estimating your portion owed. That portion will be due at the time of service.
Please understand that insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. We do our best to provide you with timely information regarding the cost of treatment, but you are ultimately responsible for all services provided by us.

Although we can process most insurance claims, we are only preferred providers for the following insurance companies:

  • Delta Dental (including Washington Dental Service! WDS)
  • Regence
  • Premera
  • Cigna (Radius Network)
  • Met Life
  • Assurant
  • United Concordia
  • Aetna
The contract that you or your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier defines your dental benefits. We want you to get the most from your dental benefits, and this is best accomplished if you understand them. Please read your benefit or plan booklet or go online to your insurance company website. 
Various plans cover endodontic procedures at different levels. As a result your payment portion may vary from our estimate.

We are preferred providers for the listed insurance companies. This means that we have negotiated an UCR (Usual, Customary, and Reasonable) rate with the above companies and will accept that rate. You are responsible for a portion of the payment as defined in your particular contract. We do not know in advance the details of your contract. We, therefore, estimate your portion based on information provided by your insurance company and past experience with your insurance company. UCR rate is the term used by insurance companies to describe the amount they will pay for a particular endodontic procedure.
If your insurance company is not listed above we can still process your insurance claim. You will be responsible for whatever amount the insurance company does not cover.
