Financial

 

 

One of our goals at Gentle Dental Care is to assist you in paying for necessary and cosmetic dentistry. We offer the convenience of payment by cash, check, VISA or MasterCard at the time of service. For our patients with insurance, we are happy to submit your claims for you, and when we receive payment, charge your credit/debit card for the balance. We are currently participating providers for Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield (Unicare, FEP Blue Dental, and GRID+), Delta Dental Premier PPO (Clear Choice and other Delta individual plans) and United Concordia (Assurant and Sun Life Financial). We also accept assignment of benefits for most PPO insurance plans. 

We also accept any of the following payment options:

  • Option 1: On any procedures over $500, we offer a 5% courtesy for payment in full. If you have insurance, we will bill your insurance company, and they will reimburse you directly.
  • Option 2: On certain procedures, you may pay your balance, with a monthly agreed-upon amount for up to six months. A credit/debit card is required for monthly payments, which are deducted automatically.
  • Option 3: We are happy to accept payment from your primary insurance company directly to Gentle Dental Care. We request co-payment at the time of service. Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Please remember the contract itemizing your dental benefits is between you, your employer and your insurance carrier. If your dental plan does not pay within 60 days of treatment, all outstanding balances are to be paid by the patient, and you may seek reimbursement from your dental plan benefits.
