Billing and Refund Policy
If a refund is in order, it will be processed via the same method as the original payment or, at our discretion, a check may be issued to you. If payment was made by credit card, we will credit your account. While every effort is made to provide refunds in a timely fashion, your financial institution may take several days to reflect refund transactions. Please allow 7-10 days for a credit to appear on your credit card statement after a credit is made. If payment was made by check, the refund check will be mailed within 15 days. If your insurance pays less than the estimated amount, you will receive a statement in the mail and by email if you elected to receive electronic correspondence. Upon notification of an outstanding balance, the total amount is due from the patient. Your cooperation with this is greatly appreciated. Please note, if your insurance company does not remit payment to us after submitting a claim, the patient will be responsible for the entire balance for services rendered. Patients can then contact their insurance carrier to obtain reimbursement directly. Any unpaid balances beyond 30 days will be subject to late fees and finance charges.
This is a required legal notice. If you fail to pay your bill, this office at its discretion may submit a negative credit report to a credit reporting agency, which will negatively affect your credit report.
If your payment is returned for any reason, we will resubmit it electronically. A charge may apply for each payment returned.
Payment by Check
When you pay by check, you authorize us either to use information from your check to make a one-time electronic fund transfer from your account or to process this transaction as a check. When we use information from your check to make an electronic fund transfer, funds may be withdrawn from your account as soon as the same day we receive your payment, and you will not receive your check back from your institution.
Some dental procedures, such as tooth extractions and oral surgery, may call for our office to prescribe medications before or after a procedure. These medications are used to prevent or fight an infection, or to relieve any post-operative discomfort and pain.
For these reasons, it is extremely important that you share your entire medical history - including any medications you are currently taking - with our office. Some medications used in dentistry, and other medical practices, could interact with those medications in a detrimental way. In addition, if you have any allergic reactions to certain medications, it is important for our office to know beforehand.
Finally, if you are prescribed any medication by our office, follow the dosage instructions very carefully, and if instructed, finish your entire prescription even if you are no longer feeling pain.
