Financial & Appointment Policies

Pediatric Dentistry Specialists, P.C. is a fee for service office. Payment for services are due in full and is expected at the time services are provided. The parent/guardian that accompanies the child to the appointment is responsible for payment, unless payment is arranged prior to the appointment. Cases of divorce or other custody disputes, regardless of divorce decree are no exception.
Patients with Dental Insurance
Although payment is expected at the time our services are provided; as a courtesy, we will submit the dental claim for reimbursement back to you. Please know most insurance companies do not inform us if they have issued you a check, therefore please follow up and call your insurance company to inquire about the status of your claim if you haven’t received your reimbursement or any correspondence from them. The insurance contract is an agreement between you and the insurance company; we cannot guarantee your coverage or payments. Our relationship is with you and your child, not with the dental insurance company. Questions concerning insurance coverage should be directed by you to your insurance company. A service charge of 10% of the bill or $10.00, whichever is greater, on any unpaid balance will be charged on all accounts exceeding 60 days.There will be a $50 charge for returned checks.
Payment may be by cash, personal check, Mastercard, or Visa.
