Welcome to Smilez Pediatric Dental Group – Leaders in Exceptional Dental Care
Insurance and Billing
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. We accept most dental insurances; however, because insurance policies vary greatly, we can only ESTIMATE your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients we will file your claim for services and allow 45 days for them to render payment. After 60 days you are responsible for the entire balance, paid in full. If you have any questions, our courteous team is always available to assist you. Please feel free to call before your appointment with any questions.
At Smilez Pediatric Dental Group we are dedicated to serving you and caring for your child’s oral health. Therefore, we will be happy to assist you with any financial matter related to your dental needs.
We ask for payment in full at each dental visit. To accommodate you we offer the following methods of payment:
- Visa/Mastercard, Discover
- Care Credit (with approval prior to appointment).CareCredit is here to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover.

For our patients with dental insurance, as a courtesy to you we are happy to file your claim. Upon your request, we will file a predetermination for any dental treatment diagnosed. Any predetermination received from your insurance company is not a guarantee of payment. The estimated portion is due in full at the time services are rendered.
Your insurance plan is an agreement between you and your insurance company. If your insurance company fails to make payment on your claim, the balance will become your responsibility. If payment is made on your claim and it is less than we originally estimated, then the remaining balance, in full, will become your responsibility.
We firmly believe that your insurance company does not have any right to decide what course of treatment is best for you. Their decisions about your care are not always up to our standard of care, and we refuse to neglect you, our patient, because of this. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please feel free to contact our office.
