Kids Dental Studio offers convenient hours to help make scheduling dental appointments easy for you and your child. Please feel free to call us during office hours with any questions.
We attempt to schedule appointments at your convenience and when time is available. We have found that young children are better seen in the morning because they are fresher and therefore more likely to have a positive experience. Since appointment times are reserved exclusively for your child, we ask that you please notify our office 24 hours in advance of any changes or if you are unable to keep your appointment. We understand that unforeseen events can and do occur, but we ask for your assistance in this matter.
In the event of a dental emergency, our office will make special arrangements to see your child promptly. If you are unable to reach us, please contact your closest emergency medical center.
Financial and Insurance
Payments for professional services are due at the time dental treatment is provided. We are pleased to accept cash, debit, checks, and most major credit cards.
We also work with many of the major dental insurance companies and will be happy to help file your insurance claims; however, please understand that insurance plans are contracts between you and your insurance company and often cover only a portion of the total cost of treatment. We are not responsible for how your insurance company handles its claims or for what benefits they pay on a claim. Insurance policies vary greatly, and we can only assist you in estimating your portion of the cost of treatment. It is your responsibility to pay for any balance not covered by your insurance.
Please keep us updated on any changes to your insurance coverage.
