When it comes to affordable dental care, ‘getting it right the first time’ is one of the best ways to ensure that your dental treatment has a big impact on your smile without having too big of an impact on your wallet. Dr. Justin Craighead and Dr. Ada Parra offer the skills and resources of specialists while providing for your general oral care needs. When you receive treatment from Dr. Craighead and Dr. Parra, due to their specialties, we do not need to refer you out for treatments involving periodontal disease, dental implants, or dentures. This saves you valuable time and money.
We offer the following convenient payment options:
We are happy to help you file your insurance so you may receive reimbursement for your covered services.
We are happy that many of our patients have insurance to help defray the cost of their dentistry. It is our office policy that the patient has full responsibility for payment of the fee. Our efficient and professional team will assist you with dental financing arrangements before treatment is started. Completion of payment is expected by the time treatment is concluded.
As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care and PPO out-of-network. We are not part of any managed care network. Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.
To expedite reimbursement of your benefits, the following procedures are followed by our office. It is not necessary for patients to bring a blank insurance form, as all insurance statements are made on the universally used “UNI CLAIM FORM” which is accepted by all carriers. This insurance form is provided after each dental procedure or series of procedures. The patient then completes their portion of the form and submits it to their carrier. In all instances, we require that the CARRIER DIRECTLY REIMBURSE THE PATIENT.
The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.
