As you are aware, you are fully responsible for the payment of your dental account.
When an appointment is booked, that time is reserved exclusively for you and anyone else requesting time will be denied. For this reason, a
minimum of 2 full business days notice is required to change your appointment. Failure to provide notice will result in a minimum of a
$100 cancellation fee.
If you do not have dental insurance, you will be required to pay your account in full after each visit. If you have a dental plan, we would be happy to direct bill your insurance company on your behalf. However, your patient portion is due at the end of each appointment. If there is a balance remaining after submitting to your insurance company, this balance will be your responsibility. All overdue accounts will be subject to interest charges.
It is your responsibility to know what benefits your insurance covers, how often services can be performed, annual maximums, and percentages.
I have read the above and agree to accept responsibility for my dental account. "My dental account" is defined as any costs incurred by any and all persons or family members receiving dental treatment and or receiving benefits on the same insurance plan at any time. Should any conditions change, I agree that it is my responsibility to notify Affinity Dental Kingsway of these changes before any costs are incurred.
