Insurance

Navigating the world of dental insurance can be frustrating, even for us. In order to help make this process easier for our patients, we do everything possible to handle insurance claims for you. Insurance estimates accompany all treatment procedures before any work is done, and we only charge our patients their out-of-pocket copay.

If you do not have any dental insurance, fear not. We do provide cash discounts for procedures paid in full, or if you need to stretch payments out over time, we can offer you financing with Care Credit. Care Credit has several plans available, and we handle most of the financing process in-house. Low monthly payments can help you achieve your goal of a beautiful and healthy smile.

In order to help answer some insurance questions, we have provided a list of some of those insurance carriers we work with. If you do not see your insurer's name below, please call us to verify. This list continually changes with new ones being added.

We accept almost all PPO’s, whether in-network or out-of-network.

Special Discount Dental Plan

No Dental Insurance? Don’t Worry; We have a Solution!

Save 30% off our standard fee rates and get basic PPO fee rates instead.

One of the main reasons people stay away from the dentist is the lack of dental insurance. Many times these individuals are in desperate need of dental treatment, but the fear of high cost can be overwhelming without good dental insurance.

Our solution is our very own Special Discount Dental Plan, which can dramatically decrease the out of pocket cost for dental treatment when compared to no insurance cash fees. We copied the same model that large insurance companies use today for their discount dental fee plan policies, except we cut out the middleman. This is not insurance, think of it as a discount fee plan. There are no applications. No deductibles. No maximums. No claim forms. No pre-existing conditions. No denials. No waiting periods. No contracts. It is as basic as it sounds.

Here is how it works:

For an Annual fee of $75 per person (just like an insurance premium but a whole lot less), you will receive your initial new patient exam and x-rays (cleaning is separate) plus 30% off ALL IN OFFICE dental services. Here are some of the most common services include:

  • X-rays
  • Dental exams
  • Dental cleanings
  • Tooth-colored fillings
  • Dental crowns
  • Dental bridges
  • Porcelain veneers
  • Dental extractions
  • Full and partial dentures
  • Bite splints
  • Excludes orthodontics, tooth whitening, Botox, and Juvederm

This Special Discount Dental Plan applies only to our office and the dental treatment we do in our office. This plan does not apply to a procedure referred to a specialist outside of our office.

It’s just like buying a Sam’s Club membership to get goods for less.

Our goal is to provide a program to help those people that would otherwise go without dental care because of no insurance.

Please read through our website to learn more about our office and the services we provide. Then call our dental office and get started. Give us a chance, and we can help you smile with confidence!

Frequently Asked Questions

There has been no research or documentation that confirms this. In fact, the majority of dental offices have been open for many months since the pandemic began and there have been no documented cases of dental offices spreading the virus. Bars and restaurants pose a substantially higher risk than seeking routine dental care. That is a fact!

Absolutely. Modern dental offices use air purification systems that clean the air in each treatment room in a matter of minutes. These purifiers have many levels of filtration including UVC lighting which kills viruses. In addition, dental offices adhere to strict infection control guidelines that existed long before COVID. If you're still uncertain, call your dental office to see what precautions they are doing. 

Dental phobia may be linked to a bad experience in a dental office—particularly during childhood. It can also be rooted in myths you’ve heard on the internet. In any case, if you suffer from dental anxiety, your dentist in north Tampa, FL offers a variety of solutions to help you get the dental care you need.

Another way we help with dental anxiety is to find out where the source of stress is coming from and then tailor an anxiety reduction protocol to provide dental care. It could be the use of nitrous gas, Rx medication, or even IV sedation.

Your sedation dentist in Tampa, FL discusses these options with you and helps you choose an option or a combination of options that allow for pain-free dentistry and ultimate relaxation.

Yes it is. Dentistry, by nature, has always had to deal with respiratory infections which is why there are so many precautions that are always in place. Treatment rooms are disinfected for every patient, instruments are sterilized for each patient, staff members have always worn masks and now wear face masks as added protection. Modern offices use hi-tech air filtration systems to purify the air in each treatment room including UVC lights to kill viruses. Technically speaking the dental staff is more at risk than a patient is. But overall, dental offices are very safe.
