Financial Information

financial-smallDr. Beckstead and staff are proud to be a team whose primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure you that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined our payment policy.

Exam/Emergency/Single-Visit Payments

For the initial exam and single-visit procedures, our policy is that payment is due in full at the time of service. For your convenience we accept cash, checks, money orders, and credit card payment (MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover).

Multiple Visit Payment Options

Option 1: Full Payment at Time of Service or 5 percent fee reduction for surgeries if paid 2 weeks before treatment is rendered.

Selection of this option gives you the maximum savings on the cost of your treatment plan because the billing expenses we save are passed on to you in the form of a 5 percent discount. Your Treatment Coordinator will provide you with specific details.

Option 2: Outside Financing – For those who would prefer an extended payment plan.

For your convenience, payments may be made with cash, personal check, and bank draft, AMEX, Discover, Visa, or MasterCard. For some procedures you may qualify for free financing through our finance partners, CareCredit and Springstone Financing. If you would like more detail regarding the financing options or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date.
