With regular dental visits and proper home care, the chance of developing a serious tooth problem is relatively small. Unfortunately, dental emergencies sometimes do occur and need to be addressed immediately. We will make every effort to accommodate you as soon as possible, often on the same day you call.
Your dental care is an important investment. Proper dental care is directly related to your medical and psychological well-being. Don’t let financial obligations be an obstacle to your obtaining dental care. Dr. Hanson is sensitive to your financial needs and offers a number of payment options.
Option 1: Cash or check
Option 2: MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, or debit cards
Option 3: CareCredit or Citi-Bank. These are loan-based plans through which Dr. Hanson can offer you interest-free financing for 3, 6, 12, or 18 months, depending on your balance. These plans also offer up to 5 years of financing for larger treatment plans at a nominal interest rate.
We accept most dental insurance plans. We know that insurance can be very confusing. Our goal is to help in maximizing your benefits, but your insurance contract is between your employer and the insurance carrier; we are a third party.
As a courtesy, immediately following your appointment, we prepare our insurance claim for same-day filing. In addition to filing your claim, we ask that you pay your estimated co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate based upon data available to us. Thank you for paying at the time of service. Please note: We DO NOT accept Medicaid, HMO, or DMO policies. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Hanson Dentistry is committed to your health and comfort. Please contact our family dentistry practice for quality dental care with exceptional customer service.
