Financial and Insurance Information

At Pacific Northwest Periodontics and Implant Dentistry we take great pride in offering our patients a variety of treatment options that meet their unique needs and budgets.

Our patients are always provided with an estimate of treatment costs of the various treatment options, before any treatment is ever provided. As a courtesy we help file dental insurance claims and work with our patients’ insurance carriers in order to maximize insurance reimbursement.  However we never allow arbitrary insurance rules or limitations to affect patient care or the therapy we provide.

We work with the dental insurance carriers to provide a good faith estimate of insurance coverage.  We ask our patients to only pay the difference between the insurance estimate and our fee, at the time of service.  Any over-payment is refunded promptly when payment has been received from the insurance carrier.

Forty years ago, Dental Insurance benefits averaged $1,000, which was the equivalent of around $8,000 today.....Straight Teeth Talk about Dental insurance: By Mac Lee
