      It is important to us that you, our patient, understand the treatment we are recommending and any invasive procedures we may, with your agreement, perform. We want to involve you in all decisions concerning invasive procedures you may need. We take informed consent very seriously in our office. Therefore, we only want you to sign this form when you understand that there is a risk associated with dental procedures, and all your questions have been answered.
      Dental treatment and procedures are not to be taken for granted as being routine or without risk for complications. As with all medical treatment to one’s body, including dental treatment, there are no guarantees that the results will be as planned and to
      each individual’s satisfaction. When dealing with the human body there are potentially many variables, some predictable and others are not. Complication rates in dentistry are low but do exist. Even a minor procedure like “filling” can lead to major
      complications that cannot be foreseen. For example, “Novacaine” injection could lead to allergic reaction, anaphylaxis, facial
      hemorrhage, swelling, bruising, and even hospitalization or death. Granted these are fairly uncommon occurrences but individuals who are contemplating this should be aware of this prior to consenting. Whenever drilling is involved, even a simple
      cavity can lead to pulpal (nerve) problems, abscess, fractured tooth, and/or post treatment pain to biting and to temperature extremes (hot and cold). These complaints can be transient or may persist requiring further treatments. The above examples are only samples of possible complications with dental treatment and are not limited to these. In general, complications include but are not limited to pain, swelling, bleeding, infection, and other nerve problems.

      I have read, understand and consent to dental treatments.

      Thank you for choosing us as your dental care provider. We are committed to your dental treatment being successful. We agree in writing with every patient to sign our financial policy, as we have found with our past experience that this policy makes our
      mutual experience easier and without confusion. This policy is to ensure that all of our patients receive a highest level of quality dental care in a friendly and healthy environment while understanding their financial responsibilities. This policy as well as other health and insurance forms provided must be read, agreed to, and signed prior to any dental treatment.

      Cash Patients

      Patients with no insurance are expected to pay in cash, check or credit card the day the service is rendered, unless specific arrangements are made in advance.

      Insurance Patients

      For those patients covered by insurance, we may accept assignment of benefits. This means you must sign the portion of your
      insurance form that assigns payment to our office. Very few insurance policies cover 100% of the cost of your treatment. In this day and age many cover 50% or less on many services and actually cover nothing on others. Due to this, and the frequent delays in receiving payment from the insurance company, you will be asked to pay your deductible and your portion of your charges the day the service is rendered. We will estimate as closely as possible, your coverage, but until we actually receive the payment from the insurance company, it is just an estimate. Some patients request that we send in a pre-determination to their insurance carriers. We state what treatment you need, and they tell us what they will cover on that treatment plan. Many patients prefer to

      get service started immediately, and some treatments should be started immediately. In these cases we will ask you to pay for your services in full as they are done, and when the insurance company pays their portion we will reimburse you for what they pay. We will assist you in dealing with the insurance company, but ultimately the responsibility of payment and insurance problems lies with you. If we do accept assignment of benefits from the insurance company, if the insurance company hasn’t paid after 45 days, the full balance is expected from you personally. The above policies apply equally to parents and guardians of minors being treated, and minors cannot be treated without a parent or guardian authorizing treatment and agreeing to financial responsibility. Thank you for reading and understanding our financial policy. If you have any questions or concerns; please feel free to ask them at any time. We wish to be of assistance in any way we can.
