Do You Treat Dental Emergencies?
Absolutely! Dental emergencies often come without warning and can be a very stressful time for everyone involved. If someone in your family experiences a dental emergency, please contact us as soon as possible, and we will do our best to determine the best course of action to help them. We offer same-day emergency appointments because providing you with pain relief is one of our top priorities.
Will You Accept Payment from My Insurance Company?
Dental insurance benefits are used to help our patients cover some or all of the cost associated with their dental care. Not all dental insurance plans are the same which makes it important for you to understand your specific plan details before your appointment. Most dental plans cover some, but not all of the cost of your dental care. The dental fees billed at Sunnyside Dental for our services are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients, whether you have dental insurance or not. Your particular policy may cover treatments and services at a fixed fee schedule, which typically does not coincide with our usual fees. In these cases, here the difference in fees not covered by your insurance company becomes your responsibility to pay and will be invoiced to you once we receive payment from your dental plan.
What is the best way to budget for my treatment?
Our Dental Administration Team is happy to provide you with a detailed treatment plan outlining the associated costs to help you budget for each appointment accordingly. We can also prioritize your treatments so that you can tent to the most urgent dental needs as soon as possible, and plan further treatments over time.
What Should I Bring to My First Visit at Sunnyside Dental?
Please ensure that you bring your dental insurance cards along with your plan details. Our office administrators will do their best to help you understand your coverage details and whether your plan allows for the assignment of benefits.
