Do you accept insurance?
We do not verify your insurance benefits beforehand, but as a courtesy we will file with PPO insurances on your behalf. We encourage all our patients to call their insurance company directly and ask them what benefits they will receive by seeing us. You may provide them with our name and address, and they can let you know what benefits you would receive when coming for us for services. If there is a portion your insurance doesn't cover, we will invoice you if there is any balance. Keep in mind some dental insurances may cover preventive care (exam, cleanings, and xrays) at 100% regardless of whether you are in or out of network so it is worthwhile to examine your benefits closely.
Are x-rays necessary?
Our office follows the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry guidelines on determining the necessity of radiographs (x-rays) for your child. Depending on a host of factors, including your child's age, medical history, cavity risk, teeth orientation Dr. Angie will determine the best way to diagnose your child and ensure your child's oral health. The only way to diagnose certain oral pathologies and cavities is with radiographs.
