Patient Information - Financial and Insurance Information

How much will the procedure cost?

The cost varies depending on how complex the problem is and which tooth is affected. Molars are more difficult to treat, the fee is usually more. Most dental insurance policies provide some coverage for endodontic treatment.

Generally, endodontic treatment and restoration of the natural tooth are less expensive than the alternative of having the tooth extracted. An extracted tooth must be replaced with a bridge or implant to restore chewing function and prevent adjacent teeth from shifting. These procedures tend to cost more than endodontic treatment and appropriate restoration. With root canal treatment you save your natural teeth and money.

Financial Policy

Payment for services is the responsibility of the patient and is payable at the time of service. Payment can be made by cash, check, credit card, or debit card. We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover, and CareCredit**. If you do not have dental insurance, you agree to pay the entire treatment fee at the time of service. If balances due are unpaid after 30 days you will incur a late fee. If we do not receive payment after 90 days, your account will be turned over to collections. Any personal check returned unpaid or NSF will incur a $30 returned check fee.

Insurance Policy

In the event you have dental insurance, we will accept direct assignment of benefits (if such benefit coverages can be pre-determined). We are in network providers for several insurance plans. Please call the office to check on your insurance coverage. As a service to our patients, before your treatment, we will attempt to contact your insurance company for an estimate of yearly maximums and estimated out-of-pocket payment. Unfortunately, this can only be an estimate and is not a guaranteed figure. The patient may incur an additional out-of-pocket payment or may receive a reimbursement in the mail if overpaid.
