Payment Options

Insurance:  We accept most insurance carriers and will file your claims for you. We make every effort to be accurate with our estimations of your benefits, but they are estimations. If your insurance reimburses less than we estimated, you are still responsible for the outstanding balance. If your insurance reimburses more than we estimated, you will be credited or refunded the difference. We encourage you to contact your insurance company to become more familiar with your dental benefits.  If you have insurance questions that are specific to our office, please contact Dana, our insurance specialist at (512) 448-3131.

Credit Cards:  We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.

Cash/Checks:  We are always happy to accept cash, personal checks or debit cards for payment.

Payment Plan:  We understand that dental care can be an unexpected expense.  With this in mind, we are proud to accept CareCredit which allows you to schedule treatment right away.  If you would like to learn more about this financing option, you may visit them online at  If you have questions, please do not hesitate to call our office for more information.

Payment Policy:

Patients of Record: We require payment of the patient’s estimated portion of fees to be paid at the time of service.

Emergencies:  We always have someone available for emergency care.  In the event of an emergency, we want to treat you immediately so please do not hesitate to contact our office.  For Non-Patients of Record, we are willing to see non-life threatening dental emergencies during regular business hours and upfront payment for the exam and x-ray are required.  If any additional treatment is provided, that fee will be due at the time of service.
