Forms in Woodstock, GA

We accept most dental insurance plans. Please familiarize yourself with your individual insurance plan. Our accounting staff will prepare and submit all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. We are here to serve you and help improve your oral health. We believe that everyone deserves quality dental care and a beautiful smile, and we will do everything we can to help our patients.

You are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. We do not render our services on the basis that insurance companies will pay all of our fees. We base our treatment on what is best for you.


Payment is expected at the time services are rendered, unless other arrangements have been made. This includes any co-payments or deductibles (amount not covered by your insurance).
