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 wife and I have been patients of Dr. Avery since 1981. Dr. Avery and I have known each other a long time: we were high school associates in the same organization at our respective high schools. However, we chose Dr. Avery when I returned from active duty in the Army and Sue and Jim Baker – my in-laws and patients of Dr. Avery – recommended him. I needed several crowns because my fillings were deteriorating and I was experiencing some pain. In addition, my broken front two teeth had always been a cosmetic problem until Dr. Avery repaired them. I had great confidence in the outcome since I knew that Dr. Avery had instructed on crowns in medical school. Fixing those teeth was like getting a new lease on life!

Everyone in this office is caring and friendly and they always treat us like their own family. They have always gone out of their way to help us when we had special, unscheduled needs. Lisa is an exceptional hygienist as well. Our experience with Dr. Avery and Meadows’ office has always been first class – including the professionalism of their schedulers, receptionists, and bookkeepers. I would recommend his office to everyone! Just last week, I recommended that my boss go straight to Dr. Avery’s office and get his crown difficulties resolved.
