We never want costs to stand in the way of quality treatment, which is why we are dedicated to providing our patients with care that is both effective and affordable. Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Charges are payable at the time of treatment. For your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards. We offer in-house payment plans and financing options through CareCredit.
We do request that you pay your co-pay at the time of service. Some discounts are applied for those patients willing to pay in full at the time of treatment or your bill in full, unless other specific arrangements have been made with Dr. Schmidt and Anna. A discount is also available for senior citizens.
As a courtesy to you, we do file insurance claims with your insurance companies for you. Insurance is the responsibility of the patient; however, we gladly will assist your needs in understanding your benefits and other aspects of dental insurance.
We are a preferred provider for Delta Dental and the Stanislaus Dental Foundation. We also accept other insurances, including Blue Cross, MetLife and Premier Access. Although we are not necessarily a preferred provider for these other insurances, we are usually able to provide services to those patients who have a PPO plan.
