We know you have many choices when choosing a Dentist in Homer, LA so we have made requesting an appointment a simple process via our Web site. If, for any reason you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, or will be delayed, please call us as soon as possible.
Our goal is not to let expense prevent you from benefiting from the quality of care you desire and need.
Our fees are based on the quality of the materials we use and our experience in performing your needed treatment. To facilitate our goals, we have developed several financial options for your convenience. We have found that our patients appreciate knowing exactly what dental financial responsibilities they will incur before receiving the necessary dental treatment.
We would be happy to work with you to plan out the most appropriate arrangement for your budget. Financing your treatment allows you to start your dental care immediately and spread the payments over a time period. Most importantly, it offers you the opportunity to enjoy the benefits of your dental health without financial strain.
1) **Dental Insurance
Our practice accepts most dental insurance programs used by major employers in our area. Our goal is to maximize your insurance benefits and make any remaining balance easily affordable. If you have any questions regarding your insurance benefits, please don't hesitate to call our office at (318) 927-6152 to review your concerns. We will be glad to process your insurance forms electronically at no charge. Please be aware that most insurance companies do not cover 100% of all dental expenses.
2) **5% Cash Courtesy
On services over $300, a 5% courtesy will be given when paid in full by cash or check prior to that appointment date on procedures using our standard fees. This requires that you file your own insurance and be willing to accept your own benefits. A refund will be made if the proposed treatment is not completed.
3) 5% Senior Citizen Courtesy
Our patients age 65 and older can enjoy a 5% courtesy for their dental treatment. It cannot, however, be combined with any of our other offers and is only applied to our standard fees.
4) Extended Payment Plans
We offer outside financing through both Carecredit and Citibank Healthcard. They are here to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover. We offer up to 12 months interest-free financing and low interest financing for extended payment plans. The extended low interest payment plans are available for up to 60 months, depending on your needs. Co-signers are also accepted. You can be approved in minutes for your necessary dental treatment.
Now you don’t have to worry about saving up for the procedures you want and need.
If approved with CareCredit or the Citibank Healthcard, the decision is in your hands to get what you want, when you want it.
If you wish to apply for financing, we will be happy to help you with your application. For your convenience, we are pleased to accept patient financing options through CareCredit(1-800-365-8295) or Citihealth (1-877-354-8337). You may also visit www.carecredit.com or www.healthcard.citicards.com . Please inquire at our office for assistance or for more information, or click the links below.
5) Mastercard, Visa, Discover, American Express, or debit cards
Our office accepts all major credit and debit cards. If you prefer to pay out larger portions of treatment on your credit card on a regular monthly basis, we can accommodate you by having you sign a monthly authorization card. Once per month, your card will be charged the allotted monthly amount. There may be a monthly maintenance fee, but it helps you avoid large amounts of interest. A down payment will be required.
6) Gradual Treatment Plan
If it will be easier financially for those patients without dental insurance, we can plan the completion of your dental work by spreading your appointments over several months. We will arrange to do the more urgent services at the beginning of treatment.
