Insurance and Financial Info
We are committed to the best oral surgical care, low fees and the most convenient financial options.
As oral surgeons, many of our procedures are covered under dental insurance but dependent upon the procedure sometimes they are billed under medical insurance. Because of the complicated nature of insurance policy benefits, it is important to contact your insurance carrier before the procedure to verify benefits. Our patient coordinators will help explain your insurance benefits and how they pertain to your procedures.
Our patient coordinators have years of experience working with many different insurance companies. We understand dealing with insurance policies can be confusing and time consuming. We work with your insurance and stay in contact with them regarding claims. Please bring your insurance cards with you to the consultation so that we can expedite insurance processing. Upon receipt of an insurance payment, any balance due will be billed to you.
Many of our procedures are covered under dental and/or medical insurance, it is important to contact your carrier before the procedure to verify benefits.
If you have any problems or questions, let us know. We are here to help.

We are participating providers with the following Networks: Dentemax, Connection Dental and Premier Dental. These are not insurance companies but Networks where plans that would normally process Out of Network are allowed if their Fee Schedules are used in order to process the claim. This means the claims are processed as In Network as a benefit to the patient. It is recommended that you contact your plan to see if we are a provider under the network, we then will be considered in-network under medical and dental.
AETNA: There are Aetna policies that use the DenteMax / Coalition of America network. When this happens, we are considered in-network. There is no identifier on the Aetna cards that reflects in-network status. It is recommended that you contact your Aetna plan to see if we are a provider under the DenteMax network, we then will be considered in-network under medical and dental.
All other dental plans, we will work with but we are not in-network providers unless they are using the Dentemax network, then we are considered in-network.
