The cost of your treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. We will discuss the cost of your treatment and each of your available payment options with you before you begin. Your smile is yours forever. We want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best dental care.
What Is Fee for Service?
At our office, we operate on a fee-for-service model which allows us to focus on the quality of our services as opposed to dealing with the hassle of negotiating with insurance providers. Since we are out-of-network with all insurances, there are no limitations on who we can see.
This means you have the freedom to choose your dental healthcare provider based on the quality of services, your individual needs, and your desired patient experience, rather than simply choosing from a limited list of accepted providers.
If you would like more information about your financial options, we’re always happy to answer any questions you may have! Just give us a call at (706) 226-3230.
We accept most dental and dental PPO plans and are in-network with a number of plans. Common plans are from, but not limited to, these insurance companies: Cigna, MetLife, Principal, Aetna, Guardian, Ameritas, The Standard, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, and others. We are not in-network with Delta Dental. Patients who have Delta Dental insurance are required to pay in-full for treatment, Delta Dental will reimburse you directly. That's Delta Dental's requirement and not ours.
Major employers in the Dalton area who have policies we work with every day are Shaw Industries, Engineered Floors, Mohawk Industries, Hamilton Medical Center, Whitfield County Schools, Dalton Public Schools, and so many more.
If you have any questions, please call and give us your policy information so we may verify benefits and details with your insurance company. We always need to verify benefits and file a pretreatment estimate before your appointment.
The patient or his guarantor is responsible for the total cost of treatment. Your insurance policiy is a contract between you and your insurance company. Dr. Battles is not a party of this contract and is not in any way resposible for the reimbursement amounts paid by your insurance company.
We do not file medical claims, Medicaid, Medicare, nor worker’s compensation claims of any kind. We do not participate in any managed care networks such as HMOs and DMOs.
We accept CareCredit, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit and debit cards.
