Payment Information and Options
Our Draper Smiles team, as a courtesy, will gladly processes insurance claims and will verify your dental benefits. In order to make your visit as smooth as possible, please provide us with your insurance information before you arrive, preferably, at the time of scheduling to avoid any unwanted billing surprises.
We are happy to bill to all traditional insurance plans, and for your convenience, we are also preferred providers for the following the vast majority of main insurance plans:
-Blue Cross/ Blue Shield
-GEHA (Connection Dental)

You are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated.
Even if we are not preferred providers with your specific dental benefits provider, all PPO plans (no HMO), will provide benefits the same way as if we were providers. Unlike medicine, most dental benefit plans provide flexibility for you to choose the provider you would like to trust with your dental care.
You may choose from a variety of ways to make a payment to facilitate access to the very best dental care available–cash, money orders, personal checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Flex spending or Health Savings (HSA) cards.

A WORD ABOUT DENTAL INSURANCE
Our accounting department will prepare all of the necessary forms for this important benefit. However, we remind you that your policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company, not between your insurance company and our office. We can make no guarantee of any estimated coverage, but we’ll do our best to see that you receive your maximum benefits. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. If you would like to know what your expected coverage will be, we will submit a pre-treatment estimate. Your insurer will generally send a detailed response (which is also an estimative) within 4-6 weeks.
COSMETIC DENTISTRY AND INSURANCE
Cosmetic dental procedures are generally not covered by most dental insurance policies; however, partial benefits are often available if the teeth are broken or have previous dental fillings, bonding, or crowns. Also, most insurance companies will pay approximately 80% of the cost for silver fillings on posterior (molar and bicuspid) teeth. If a more expensive porcelain or tooth colored filling material is used, the insurance company may still pay their percentage based on the cost of the less expensive silver filling.
