It is the policy of this office that your deductible and estimated out of pocket expenses are due at the time services are rendered. This includes any portion not paid by your dental insurance. We do accept all major credit cards and will extend in-house financing up to, but not exceeding 90 days. If you need financing longer than 90 days, outside financing options are available such as Care Credit.
I understand this office does not do mercury (silver) fillings. They do composite (white) fillings and my insurance company may not cover the full amount on back teeth. I am responsible for the difference. If you have any questions, please ask for further information.
I am aware that if I can’t keep my scheduled appointment and do not give 24 hours’ notice, my account will be charged a $35.00 missed appointment fee.
Discounts are available for cash payments on $300 or above, missionaries, as well as for senior citizens age 65 and older.
If for any reason I do not meet the terms of the above said policy and/or any financial arrangements that have been made, I am aware that my account will be turned over to a collection agency of Dr. Larry Braithwaite’s choice. I am also aware that a 35% collection fee will be added to my remaining balance. If legal action is needed, I will be responsible for all attorney fees, legal fees, court costs and any other costs regarding my delinquent account.
