Payment Policies

Thank you for selecting us as your dental health care provider. Our primary goal is that you receive the optimal treatments needed to restore and maintain your dental health. Therefore, if you have any questions or concerns about our financial policies, please do not hesitate to ask one of our office managers by calling (620) 271-7474.

Payment for services is due at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, personal checks, and for your convenience Mastercard, Discover, Visa and CareCredit.




Regarding dental insurance, your insurance policy is a contract between you, your employer, and the insurance company. We are NOT a party to that contract. Our financial relationship is with you, not your insurance company. All charges are your responsibility whether your insurance company pays or not. Not all services are covered benefits in all contracts. Some insurance companies arbitrarily select certain services they will not cover. Fees for these services, along with unpaid deductibles and co-payments are due at the time of treatment. As a courtesy to you, we do accept assignment of benefit payments from most insurance companies.

Our office is an "in-network" preferred provider for Blue Cross/Blue Shield and for Delta Dental.

As a service to our patients, we have an installment payment program available which can be used by the majority of our patients for extending payments over a longer period of time. Utilizing this installment payment program patients can extend payment up to 12 months at no interest. This installment payment program is administered by CareCredit.

Patients can apply for CareCredit via our website's direct link button. CareCredit is the nation's largest leading patient payment program.
