Financial Information

We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at Forest Hills Office Phone Number 718-275-5700. Many times, a simple telephone call can clear up any misunderstandings.

Please remember that you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.

We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect payments made by your insurance company during that time period. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid its portion is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated. 

Our office accepts cash and check payments, as well as Visa™, Mastercard™, Discover™, and American Express™. We also offer CareCredit, an outside finance company that offers interest-free payment options.

We are in contract with the above insurance companies. This means that we have contracted fee arrangements with these companies.

Insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company. It is not always possible for our office to become familiar with the details of every insurance policy it encounters, and what is excluded from your dental plan.

We will contact your insurance to obtain dental benefits and give you an estimate of any out-of-pocket expenses, which are due when services are rendered. The information we give you is an estimate and not a guarantee of benefits.

Once we have received payment from your insurance company, if it is different from our original estimate, you will be refunded or billed accordingly.
