You can pay for your office visits and any treatments by cash, check, credit or debit card at the time of treatment. All payment is due at time of treatment. We also accept most major dental insurances, and Care Credit. To discuss your payment options or insurance coverage, please call (405) 341-4040.
Your dental insurance is designed to help offset the cost of your dental needs. You pay a monthly premium and depending on the level of coverage you or your company decided on, the insurance company pays a portion of your treatment costs. There is a different percentage of the cost the insurance will cover for preventive (exam, xrays, basic cleanings), basic ( deep cleanings, fillings, extractions) and major procedures (crowns, bridges, implants, dentures). All insurances have a limit of payment they think is usual and customary but this does not define how much something costs in the office or whether or not you really needed it, just how much they are willing to help you. Not every insurance plan pays for every procedure and there is almost always a yearly cap. If you have insurance, it is yours, not ours. You are ultimately responsible for payment, insurance coverage or not. We will assist you with your insurance as much as we reasonably can, and we definitely recommend you speak directly with your insurance company about any questions regarding your benefits and coverage. Knowledge is power!
A word about "in network" and "preferred provider" insurance plans
We are in network with a number of insurance companies. To be sure whether Dr. Strange is in network with your insurance company, we advise you call them prior to calling us to be sure. We will not guarentee we are in your network. Our office has enough information to make educated decisions about in network or not but, because of the way insurance companies conduct their business it is not always clear and therefore we make no guarentees about anything regarding the insurance companies. We enter into a contract to accept patients for predetermined fees and they in return advertise our name in a directory. The fee reduction we incur places limits on how we manage office policy. We do not purchase materials based on price nor do we use dental laboratories based on price. We also strive to always place patient interest and their health first, not our bottom line. To adhere to this standard and accept reduced fees, we simply cannot afford no shows and same day cancellations. An appropriate fee will be charged for no shows and same day cancellations. Multiple no show and or same day cancellations could result in dismissial from the office. We do our best to manage our time and respect yours, If you do the same, this will not be an issue.
