Craig A. Dunlop DDS -  Practice limited to Endodontics

Financial Policy

We are committed to providing our patients with the best possible care at the most reasonable fees. Due to the nature of root canal therapy, all treatment is generally completed in one or two appointments, therefore, payment is due by the completion of treatment. To help meet our patients’ needs, we offer a variety of payment options.

The fee for endodontic treatment is determined by the type of treatment required and the complexity of the tooth. The office can provide an estimate at any time and a detailed quote will be given once treatment has been diagnosed.

Insurance:

Please bring your dental insurance information with you to the initial appointment.  We need this information in order for our office to submit insurance claims as a courtesy for you.  To the best of our ability, we shall provide patients with estimates of insurance benefits and their co-payments.  A patient’s co-pay is due at time of treatment.  Most insurance companies pay on a reduced fee schedule, so most co-pays are 25%.  Our relationship is with you, not your insurance company; you are responsible  for all treatment provided regardless of insurance coverage.

Payment options:

  1. 5% bookkeeping courtesy discount for payment in full prior to treatment with cash or check for amounts over $750.
  2. 3% bookkeeping courtesy discount for payment in full prior to treatment withcredit card (MC, Visa, Discover, American Express).
  3. 3  and 6 month interest free loan upon approved credit.
  4. extended payment plan upon approved credit.

We offer our payment plans through CareCredit, a financing company specifically for dental/medical needs.  There are a variety of plans to help meet our patients’ financial needs.  We would be happy to help you apply right in our office or you can apply from home at www.carecredit.com.
