Lakeville Family Dental Center Payment Policy

For the Insured:
• Payment of 20% is due at the time of service for any basic restorative treatment.
• Payment of 50% is required for major restorative treatment.
• Please note that due to the many variations in insurance policies and benefits, it is impossible for us to always know your specific benefit and plans. We suggest and would be happy to file a pre-estimate of benefit for any non-preventative or non-urgent treatment recommended, which will inform you of your specific benefit for the specific recommended treatment.

Preventative Care Appointments:
• Our clinic, recognizes that bitewing images taken on an annual basis, and a full mouth series of images taken on 5 yr. intervals is the current, most common allowable benefit in most insurance plans. This interval is often sufficient to properly diagnose dental issues, however some patients may benefit from more frequent, non-covered dental radiographs. There may be some dental insurance plans that require longer intervals in order to receive a dental benefit. Longer intervals may not allow for the standard of care for dental diagnoses to be met. Based upon your best interest, as well as the standard of care, we will recommend and take images at intervals that are most beneficial to your dental health. Insurance benefits may differ from this recommendation. It is your responsibility to understand your benefits and you are personally liable for treatment rendered.

For the Uninsured:
• Payment in full is due at time of service by cash/check or Visa/MC. A 5% discount is available when using cash or check only.

Payment Plans:
• Payment plans may be taken into consideration for those needing extensive treatment. All payment plans and accounts 30 days past due are subject to a 15% APR finance charge.
