Policies and Insurances
We believe it is important that patients keep their regularly scheduled appointments so that dental care is provided in a timely fashion to maintain ideal dental health. Our staff expects you to keep your scheduled appointments unless unusual circumstances arise. We require a minimum of 24-hour’s notice to cancel any dental appointments. A missed appointment fee may be applied to your account or a scheduling fee may be required prior to making an appointment if you fail to show or cancel your dental appointment. In the event of frequent cancellations or several missed appointments, you may be dismissed from treatment at Dahm Dental.
In order for our patients to have a better understanding for treatment, we only schedule two family members per day.
Dahm Dental expects payment at the time of service. For patients with Delta Dental insurance or other insurances that pay directly to Dahm Dental, your estimated co-insurance is expected on the date of your dental appointment. For insurance companies who reimburse the patient directly, payment in full for dental services is expected at the time of your appointment. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express, PayPal, personal checks, and cash.
Dahm Dental has several financing options available which include the acceptance of cash, check, debit and credit cards, AdvanceCare Dental and Care Credit (3rd party financing companies), ACH auto debit withdrawals, and discounts for large treatment plans that are paid in full before service is rendered. Please ask to speak with our Financial Coordinator to discuss a personalized plan to meet your individual needs.
Dahm Dental will file your dental insurance claims with your dental insurance company as a courtesy to our patients whether we are a preferred provider for your insurance policy or not. We are a preferred provider for most Delta Dental insurances; however, we are not a preferred provider for any other dental insurance company. We can still file to our dental insurance company, but it will be considered out-of-network benefits. Upon receipt of your services, we will provide you with an estimation of your co-insurance due. Payment for services is due at the time of your appointment. In some instances, the dental insurance company will pay you, the subscriber. Hence, payment will be do in full at the time of service.
At this time, we are not accepting new Medicaid insurance patients. We are not a provider for the Dental Wellness Program through Delta Dental as well as Wellmark Federal Employee Basic Option 111 or 112 plans; therefore, services rendered under these two insurance programs, patients will the responsible for full payment.
