Insurance and Financial Policies
Thank you for choosing Smiling Hills Dental for your dental needs. Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available. An important part of the mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable for our patients as possible. We offer several payment options to fit your needs. For our patients with dental insurance, we will bill your insurance company as a courtesy.
-- Cash, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card
-- Convenient Monthly Payment Options from CareCredit
We offer a 5% discount for seniors, active or retired military. We also offer a discount on a case by case situation if the full treatment plan is paid prior to first treatment appointment. Smiling Hills Dental requires all payments due by the completion of your treatment. You can make scheduled payments at each appointment or prepay for treatment. Smiling Hills Dental does not bill patients for treatment unless the insurance company does not pay as expected or prior arrangements are made. For cases $1000 or more, a 25% deposit is required to reserve your initial treatment appointment.
If you choose to discontinue care before treatment is complete you will receive a refund less the cost of care received.
Smiling Hills Dental charges a $30 broken appointment fee and $30 for any returned check.
