New Desert Ridge Dental Patient Information

Our dental team is dedicated to providing you with the best possible care. We will also assist you with receiving your maximum allowable insurance benefits. However, in order to do this, it's important to understand our financial policy. Dental insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company with specific benefits, percentage of coverage, deductibles and a yearly maximum. Knowing your plan will help you fully utilize your insurance and manage your financial obligations.
Our recommended treatment plan is never based on what your insurance will pay, but rather by what is clinically found. Our fees are based upon our professional time dedicated to providing the highest quality of care and our costs associated with that care. Our dental practice files patient insurance claims as a courtesy to our patients; however, all decisions are ultimately the patient's responsibility.
Your co-payment is to be paid the same day that your dental treatments is rendered. Your co-pay is based upon a percentage of the total amount due.
Please take time to review your insurance contract thoroughly and feel free to ask our staff for clarification on services, billings, and insurance questions or concerns.
