Why do you ask for the estimated patient portion to be paid at the time of service?
We can submit treatment procedures to your dental insurance company only after your treatment is completed.
Dental insurance companies typically take 2 weeks to 12 weeks or more to pay AFTER your dental treatment is completed.
We ask for your estimated patient portion at the time of treatment so that we may pay our bills (salaries, materials, lab costs, etc.) for providing your care.
