Financial Arrangements and Office Policy
For All Patients:
A payment for services rendered is expected at the time of your
appointment. Cash, personal checks, Visa and MasterCard are all
accepted. If an extended payment plan is desired, please ask us
about our third party billing (finance) program. All unpaid
accounts will be assessed a 1% monthly finance charge after 60
days. Delinquent accounts over 90 days could be referred to a
collection agency. All fees incurred from the collection agency
will be charged to the account.
For Patients with Dental Insurance:
At Advanced Dental Artistry, we accept almost all dental
insurance. As a complementary service we will file your
treatment plan with your insurance company. We will estimate
your deductible and the portion not covered by your insurance.
Our estimates may differ somewhat from your insurance company’s
calculations; therefore the amount due our office may be
adjusted accordingly. All procedures that are not covered by
insurance are ultimately the patient’s responsibility. Any
insurance claims denied or remaining unpaid after 60 days will
automatically become the responsibility of the patient and will
result in a 1% monthly finance charge.
If the need to cancel a scheduled appointment arises, we
request at least 48 hours notification. Appointments
cancelled within 48 hours or “No-Show” appointments will
result in a $35 fee charged to your account.
If you are an adult patient coming in for dental care, and you
have a child, please arrange for care of your child offsite.
This is necessary for the following reasons:
1) during dental treatment, the dentist and assistant can
naturally be distracted by an uneasy child. Interruptions of
dentist and staff can have a negative impact on treatment
2) Our reception area is not a licensed day-care provider.
Staff members unfortunately do not have time to entertain
children. We do not wish to be held liable for the supervision
of your children.
3) To provide a more tranquil, relaxing atmosphere for other
Please turn off all cell phones prior to entering the treatment
area. Again, interruptions of dentist and assistant can affect
the quality of treatment.
