Payment for Service
The payment for dental /medical services is the patient’s responsibility. Our policy requires payment for services at the time the service is performed. If other arrangements are needed, please ask so that we may assist you to suggest other options.

Filing your claim does not take the place of your responsibility to pay for services received. We ask that you pay your estimated co-pay, deductible, co-insurance, or non- covered services at the time of your appointment.
It is important to recognize that your insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Your benefit assignment does not take the place of your responsibility to pay for services received. Dream Smiles Dental is NOT responsible for determining or confirming insurance benefits. Verification of benefits is not a guarantee of payment by your insurance company; final determination is made by your insurance company at the time the claim is received.
After we receive final payment or denial from your insurance company, you will be billed for the remaining balance on your account.
