Financing & Policies
In order to provide affordable treatment for all Florida families, we have provided several financial options to meet your unique needs. Good communication concerning dental problems, treatment procedures and fees is one of our most important goals. In order to minimize expense, we request payment for services at the time they are rendered.
This system greatly reduces the billing and collection costs and results in fees that are lower than would otherwise be necessary. Please do not hesitate to ask us in advance about fees for planned services.
We want you to be comfortable in dealing with these matters. We urge you to consult with your local dentist office if you have any questions regarding fees or treatment procedures.

Our Appointment Policy
In order to maintain our high quality of dental care and patient service, it is critically important that we make the most of our scheduled time with each patient.
It is our policy that 24 hours notice must be given if you are forced to cancel an appointment. Longer crown and bridge appointments, surgery, and scaling and root planings require a 48-hour notice.
After two broken appointments with no notice, we will place your file in an "inactive status" and special arrangements must be made to reactivate it.
