As a condition of your treatment by this office, financial arrangements must be made in advance. The practice depends upon reimburse- ment from the patients for the costs incurred in their care and financial responsibility on the part of each patient must be determined before treatment.
All emergency dental services, or any dental services performed without previous financial arrangements, must be paid for in cash at the time services are performed.
Patients who carry dental insurance understand that all dental services furnished are charged directly to the patient and that he or she is personally responsible for payment of all dental services. This office will help prepare the patients insurance forms or assist in making collections from insurance companies and will credit any such collections to the patient’s account. However, this dental office cannot render services on the assumption that our charges will be paid by an insurance company.
As a courtesy, our office will call to remind you of your appointment 48 hours in advance. Please be considerate to our doctors, hygienists, and our other patients waiting for an appointment by giving us 48 hour advance notice of any change in your scheduled appointment. We understand that emergencies may arise that will result in cancellation. Please understand that we cannot guarantee that you will be appointed to the same time slot. We may require advance payment of your appointment if cancellations occur greater than two (2) times (or become habitual).
I understand that the fee estimate listed for this dental care can only be extended for a period of six months from the date of the patient examination.
In consideration for the professional services rendered to me, or at my request, by the Doctor, I agree to pay therefore the reasonable value of said services to said Doctor, or his assignee, at the time said services are rendered, or within five (5) days of billing if credit shall be extended. I further agree that the reasonable value of said services shall be as billed unless objected to, by me, in writing, within the time for payment thereof. I further agree that a waiver of any breach of any time or condition hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any further term or condition and I further agree to pay all costs and reasonable attorney fees if suit be instituted hereunder.
In order to continue to assist our patients with dental insurance, we require that patients have a credit card on file in our office. Once insurance has paid their portion, your credit card will be charged the balance. If we have not received payment from your insurance company within 60 days after filing your claim, your credit card will be charged for the outstanding balance. For your convenience, we accept the credit cards listed below, as well as personal checks, third-party financing with CareCredit, and cash. As always, we extend a courtesy discount to our patients who pay in full at the time of service and have their insurance company reimburse them. This courtesy applies to restorative treatment only. We are happy to file all necessary paperwork to your insurance company to support your claim. Out team is also here to assist you with all third-party applications if you are interested in applying for financing. Please be assured that our office protects your personal and financial information as regulated by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 or HIPPA. Patients who choose not to leave a valid credit card on file with our office understand they must pay for their dental care in full on the day of service, and insurance will be filed to reimburse them for their services according to their schedule of benefits. Your signature below authorizes our office to charge your credit card.
Credit Card: 2 Visa 2 MasterCard 2 Discover 2 American Express
I grant my permission to you or your assignee, to telephone me at home or at my work to discuss matters related to this form.
I have read the above conditions of treatment and payment and agree to their content.

Why Not Give Me an Antibiotic, Doctor? By Dr. Joseph Mosqura, MD DABIM Medical advice about infections has changed. Years ago, parents were told that children with ear infections or sore throats needed to take antibiotics “just in case.” Then we discovered that most children (and adults) recovered just as quickly from these infections without antibiotics. That’s because the drugs only
