Dental Insurance

We, at DePalma Dental, want to help you better understand the intricacies of dental insurance as it can be very confusing. Dental insurance is designed to defray the cost of your dental treatment. It is NOT intended as a total payment for services and should not be used to determine the type of amount of treatment you receive.

The insurance you have is a contract between you, your employer (if applicable) and the insurance company. You (or your employer) has selected the level of insurace coverage you have. Covered services vary from plan to plan. Insurance companies base the amounts that they will pay for your dental treatments on restriced fee schedules related to your premium payments and geographical locations. Our fees are based on a number of things incuding our costs, our time and the high quality dental care we provide.

Please take the time to review your dental insurance contract thoroughly and we would be happy to review any questions you may have.

Financial options

Drs. Michael and Errin understand that money may be a concern but it should not prevent you from obtaining a beautiful and healthy smile. We are proud to offer flexible payment options to allow you to finance your treatment with easy and affordable montly payments if necessary.
