As a result of our relationship with these insurance companies, we can offer you the highest quality of care at a fair and affordable price.

Our staff is well versed in helping you understand your benefits and working with you to ensure you are maximizing your insurance while minimizing your out of pocket cost. 

For more complex treatment, we work with you and your insurance company to get pre-treatment estimates so you know exactly what is and is not covered by your dental insurance.  In addition to our relationships with PPO insurance companies, we are proud to offer third-party financing to our patients.      

If you are unsure if we accept your insurance or have a question about how your dental insurance works, do not hesitate to call our office at (314) 432-0250. Our team will be happy to answer all of your questions.
