Dental insurance is intended to cover some, but not all of the cost of your dental care. Most plans include coinsurance provisions, a deductible, and certain other expenses that must be paid by the patient. Reimbursement amounts are not, and never have been, a guideline for quality care.

We expect payment in full at the time of service, but we can file most insurance claims for you with the reimbursement going directly to you. Please bring your insurance plan information with you on your first visit. We will work with you to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled

If you have questions about your payment options, insurance plan or SmileDash, please call us at 706-543-0026, or use the email form on our Home or Contact Us pages.
