Financial and Office Policies
Our receptionists and office manager will help you schedule appointments and complete necessary paperwork. They will also answer any billing questions that you may have.
Patient AppointmentsPatients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and we ask the same courtesy from your family. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately, giving a minimum of 48 hours notice. We realize that unexpected illnesses and emergencies may occur, but we ask for assistance in this regard.
Our office strives to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. Appointments 1 hour or longer are confirmed 1 business day prior to scheduled appointment. We do not confirm appointments shorter than 1 hour. Please call the office if you have misplaced or lost your appointment slip.
Exams, x-rays & consultations are complimentary.
Insurance & Patient Co-paymentsIf you have insurance we can help you determine the orthodontic benefit you have available. In order to best assist you, it is important that you bring your dental insurance information with you to your first exam and consultation appointment.
If the Doctor recommends orthodontic treatment services, we will be able to provide you with a detailed plan which will give you an estimate of how much your insurance company may pay as well as the portion you will be expected to pay.
Professional care is provided to you, our patient family and not to an insurance company. The insurance company is responsible only to the patient as a benefit from the individual or employer plan purchase and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will assist you every way we can in filing your dental claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
We gladly accept Visa, Discover, American Express & MasterCard payments. Payment plans are offered with no interest charged.
Financial PolicyIn an effort to reduce the cost to you, the patient, while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the financial policy as follows:
Appointments & ConsultationsWe are happy to schedule a second-opinion consultation with our doctor to discuss treatment diagnosed for you. It is important to us that our patients are committed fully to a recommended course of treatment, and we make every effort to provide all available information on the types of treatment completed at Amborn Orthodontics, as well as options to make appointments comfortable.
All patients that are referred to our office from another practice, or who have self-referred themselves for a second opinion are required to undergo a complete examination by our doctor before he provides his diagnosis opinion.
It is imperative that we have all available dental (and medical if related to trauma or medically diagnosed disorder) insurance information in a timely manner, as we will be providing you with a comprehensive treatment estimate after your consultation with the doctor.
If you have questions about the services we provide, please call us at (503) 967-9887.
