Financial Arrangements

Payment is due in full at the time dental treatment is provided.

* We welcome cash, check, any of the major credit cards (Visa, MC, American Express, Discover), or CareCredit at the time dental treatment is provided.

* As a professional courtesy for our patients with dental insurance benefits, we will submit your claim to your dental insurance company.  Any portion not expected to be covered by these benefits is the responsibility of the patient and due at the time dental treatment is performed.  This amount includes any deductibles and co-payments.  Please understand that this is only an estimate--and not a guarantee of payment, and is solely based on the information available to us from your insurance company.  If, after 90 days, your insurance company has not paid its portion, the patient will be responsible for paying the balance in full.

* The person who accompanies a minor/child to the appointment will be considered the responsible party and, therefore, is responsible for any payment due at the time service is rendered.  For unaccompanied minors, non-emergency treatment will be denied unless charges have been pre-authorized before the appointment date or previous arrangements have been made with the Office Manager.  Marital status is not a consideration under any circumstance.  Decreed custody or lack thereof, does not alter financial responsibility.

Insurance Assistance

Our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable. Please remember, however, professional care is provided to you, our patient, not to an insurance company. If you have any questions regarding your insurance benefits, please don’t hesitate to call our office at (925) 973-0200 to discuss your concerns.  Please see our Insurance page for further details.

Financial Assistance
Our fees are based on the quality of the materials we use and our experience in performing your needed treatment.  Our goal is not to let expense prevent you from benefiting from the quality of care you desire and need.

To facilitate this goal, we are pleased to offer outside financing through Care Credit.  Those who qualify can use the Care Credit card as a form of payment at the time of service, and then payments are coordinated with Care Credit. This program is similar to a credit card and offers low monthly payments and flexibility to those who qualify.  Care Credit has the option of no interest to low interest financing- on approved credit.  This nationwide plan can also be used for vision, veterinary, cosmetic surgery, etc. at participating providers.

With Care Credit, you can get same day approval, so there is no delay in your treatment.  Please ask the front desk staff for further details prior to your appointment or visit Care Credit on-line at
