Financial Policy

We have an experienced team that can help you with your financial arrangements.  Some procedures may have insurance benefits, while many procedures are not covered by insurance. Our team can work with you on determining this. 

Our insurance team can file pre-treatment estimates to determine if you may have benefits, as well as file to your medical or dental insurance, once the procedures are performed. 

Payment Options

For your convenience, we offer multiple payment options for our patients. We accept cash, check, care credit & all credit cards, We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients; therefore, payment is due at the time the service is rendered, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at 770-664-5550. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.

*If you cancel your surgery within 24 hours of your scheduled surgery time, we will not be able to refund any scheduling deposits.  More lengthy procedures may have a different deposit schedule. 

We are proud to announce that we accept CareCredit.


Insurance Plans

Insurance plans provide benefits to all providers unless “out of network” benefits are not provided – such as with a true HMO or DMO. PPO plans have out of network benefits, which we can obtain reimbursement for you. Their “preferred providers”, meaning their list of doctors accept a discounted reimbursement to encourage patients to see them.  These providers get reimbursed approximately 50% of their normal fees.

This concept of requiring their providers to accept a 50%-60% discount on reimbursement requires them to cut corners, work with less staff, etc. schedule many more patients, often twice as many on a given surgery schedule to make ends meet.  This concept often causes over treating or billing for unneeded services.  We would not be able to deliver proper and quality care in this environment, without sacrificing our values and integrity. 

We do accept benefits from all insurance companies, however we are not contracted to accept their discounted fees and services.  In summary, we don’t accept discounted “in network” dental/medical benefits, but we do accept your insurance, and we file it on your behalf, and you will receive benefits paid, from your insurance

Your insurance company still will pay benefits to you/us for your procedure. 

We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated. We can make arrangements for a monthly payment plan, but that must be implemented prior to the actual procedure.
