Office Policy

Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing Cumming Endodontics!

Endodontic services vary greatly due to the nature and complexity of the procedure. The fee for your endodontic treatment will be based on the extent of treatment. During your first visit we will discuss the probable number of visits, their length, and the fees involved. Endodontic fees usually range from $500 to $2,000.

We understand that every person's financial situation is different. For this reason, we have worked hard to provide a variety of payment options so that you may receive the dental care you need and deserve that allows you to enjoy a healthy, beautiful smile in accordance to your budget.

Our goal is to clearly communicate these financial options to each patient in order to eliminate any confusion and to maintain a healthy professional relationship. We appreciate your business and kind referrals.

Insurance/Fees
Fees for endodontic therapy will vary based upon the particular tooth (front or back) in need of treatment and the problem (first root canal or retreatment of a previous root canal) that tooth is having.
Payment in full is expected at the time the services are rendered. However, as a courtesy to our patients, we will submit your insurance claim for you.
For our patients with dental insurance benefits, Cumming Endodontics will prepare and submit dental insurance claims. For your convenience, we can submit your insurance claim with the exception of Medicaid and Medicare and any insurance program that remits payment directly to the patient. Because dental insurance companies will not divulge patient's personal insurance arrangements, Cumming Endodontics can only estimate benefits to be paid.  For us to efficiently file your claim, please bring your insurance card. If your insurance policy does not have out of network benefits, Cumming Endodontics will still do our best to file your claims for you. 
Our policy is to have our patients with dental insurance pay at least 50% of the cost of the procesure OR the estimated co-pay your insurance provided at the time of your visit.  If your insurance company reimburses at a higher rate, we will refund the difference in the form of a check (the refund is generally mailed 1-2 weeks after insurance funds have cleared). Occasionally insurance companies will not cover the entire remaining balance; when this occurs you will be required to pay the balance. You will be sent a statement. Payment is expected upon receipt of statement. If insurance does not pay within 30 days, Cumming Endodontics will bill the full balance and ask that you collect the insurance funds that are due to you.
'Reasonable Usual and Customary Fee' is a term you may hear from your insurance company. The insurance company decides what they feel is a reasonable, usual and customary fee from the service based on demographics. This is usually considerably less than the dentist's actual fees.
Patients without insurance will be required to pay in full at the time services are rendered. We accept cash, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex, and personal checks. We also accept Care Credit. For more information or pre-approval of Care Credit, please contact 800-365-8295 or visit their website at www.carecredit.com . We provide 6 months no interest financing through care credit!
