NONDISCRIMINATION POLICY

We will take reasonable steps to provide free-of-charge language assistance services to people who speak languages we are likely to hear in our practice and who don't speak English well enough to talk to us about the dental care we are providing.

Spanish:

Tomaremos acciones razonables para proporcionar servicios de asistencia linguistica gratuitos a aquellas personas cuyo lenguaje escuchemos frecuentemente en nuestro consultorio y que no hablen un ingles lo suficientemente bueno como para hablar con nosotros sobre el servicio odontologico que suministramos.

INSURANCE POLICY

If you have Dental insurance we will do all we can to maximize your benefits and we will file insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients.  Due to insurance company limitations, we may not accept insurance assignment as payment on a consultation visit, however we will file your insurance claim form so that your insurance company can reimburse you.  On treatment procedures, we generally accept your insurance if we can obtain appropriate information prior to the treatment and benefits can be verified.   If your insurance is verified, we will estimate an out-of-pocket expense due at the appointment  and you are responsible for the timely payment of any portion not covered by your insurance.
