Insurance

For your Convenience we participate with MANY insurance carriers, and are a preferred provider for Excellus Blue Cross Blue Shield& MetLife Dental.

Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.

Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we then file your claims.

To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire. Please remember that insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.
