We Are In-Network with Many PPO Insurances

We realize that insurance is a complicated business. We accept a variety of PPO insurances listed below, but since there are so many plans, it is best to check with our office to see what we can do for you. While our staff is more than happy help our patients determine whether their insurance company will cover their treatment costs the ultimate responsibility of understanding what is covered by the insurance company lies with the patient. In addition, we will assist you in filing your claim. Learn more about how dental insurance works.

Payment Options

​Credit Card Payment

We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.


Flexible Spending Accounts

In some cases, employers offer pre-tax spending accounts referred to as Flex Spending Accounts or FSAs that you may use for medical expenses. Some patients are surprised to find that dental health costs are included as a medical expense. You may want to check with your employer to see if they offer Flex Spending options.


Cash Payment
Our office primarily manages all payment options through a debit or credit card option to avoid any confusion about payment. However, if this is your preferred method, we will provide a signed record in your family account for this payment method. 

Patient Billing

Payment is due at the time service is rendered, unless other arrangements have been made in advance. Should you have questions regarding your account, please contact our Office Manager at:

Office: (301) 272-1246 or



Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by our office regardless of your insurance coverage. We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Often a simple telephone call will clear any insurance issues so please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions.


Our office and practice philosophy are to maintain professionalism and integrity in the delivery of treatment. We expect the same integrity reciprocated in payment for our experience and excellence in dental care. Any outstanding balances are addressed by our team via access to secure online payment methods. Our team will diligently follow up with our families with calls to advise of outstanding payments beyond the statements sent to your home address. 


Any outstanding balance beyond 90 days, with no payment plan created or communication with our team, may result in a third-party administrator being called upon. At this point, our office can no longer be involved in management of collections and consequences.
