Office Policy

Fees

Prior to treatment, we will inform you of the treatment cost.  We provide quality, compassionate care at a reasonable cost.  Payment is due at the time treatment is rendered.  We accept cash, checks, and most major credit cards.  If you have dental coverage, we will ask that you pay your estimated co-payment at the time of treatment.  We will file a claim with your insurance company for you.   If financing is needed we are happy to assist you in receiving Care Credit or Sunbit financing.  If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at (530) 592-4688.

If We Provide Treatment

Those without dental insurance: Fifty percent of the total will be required when we begin treatment and the balance upon completion of treatment. If we complete treatment in a single visit, full payment is due at the time of service

Those with dental insurance: We will estimate the portion your insurance is going to pay. Since this varies for each individual, usually 25 - 75% of the cost of the procedure is required at the time of service. We will bill your insurance for you. Please keep in mind, however, insurance companies routinely indicate that coverage verification does not guarantee payment.

  • If your insurance pays more than the estimated amount, a refund check from this office will be mailed within 1 month from the date payment is received in this office
  • If your insurance pays less than the estimated amount, you will receive a statement from this office. We usually do not send monthly statements so prompt attention is greatly appreciated! NOTE: If your insurance company does not reimburse us after 2 submissions, you will be responsible for the remainder of the balance since we were unable to collect from them. 

CareCredit

CareCredit is different from a regular credit card.

Use it to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by medical insurance, and special financing options are available that you may not be able to get with other cards.

Pay for health, and wellness care at over 250,000 enrolled providers across the nation. Once you've applied, you can use it again and again at any location that accepts CareCredit.

Our office offers 6 months deferred interest on purchases of $200 or more when you make the minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. If you do not, interest is charged from the original purchase date.
