Dental Payment Options & Dental Insurance

Patients with Insurance Coverage

Avery and Meadows accepts dental insurance. But please be advised, dental insurance pays only a portion of the total treatment charge. Our office will gladly file all necessary claims on our patients’ behalf. Certain insurance companies will not send payments to our office but will send them to patients. In those situations, patients will pay for their services according to the options below and will be reimbursed directly by their carriers to the extent they allow.

Patients are always responsible for keeping their account current regardless of any dental insurance coverage.

Payment Options

Payment at The Time of Service: We accept cash, checks or credit cards at the time of the appointment. If treatment will extend for several visits, you may pay a portion of the total fee at each visit, with payment-in-full on the last visit.

Extended Financing Option: As a service to our patients, we are pleased to offer CareCredit, the nation’s leading dental payment plan. CareCredit has several payment plans to meet every financial need, including interest-free and low-interest options, each with low monthly payments and no upfront costs.

We also offer financing through Wells Fargo. Wells Fargo offers 12 month, no interest payment plans.

Applying for either CareCredit or Wells Fargo is easy and you will receive an online decision in seconds. Apply online or speak to our office manager for more details.

My teeth were not always the best. I have a bad gag reflex and I had some bad experiences in the past with some dentists. Thankfully, my last hygienist recommended that I see Dr. Patel. I couldn’t be more grateful. Dr. Patel is a great dentist. She explains every procedure in full detail and she always works with you on any fears and anxiety you might have when going to the dentist. You could not find a friendlier, more caring staff and understanding.

When Dr. Patel recommended that I have two fillings and two crowns, she made sure I was completely at ease. The root canal for the crown and the fillings were done with nitrous oxide sedation, which made the procedure very comfortable for me. Dr. Patel is truly gifted in her profession as well as her staff. I highly recommend them to anyone seeking dental care.
