Your time is precious! To make registration convenient, download these forms, complete them at your convenience, and bring them to your initial appointment. If you have questions, don't hesitate to call us.
Dental Insurance and Financing
We work with all insurance plans. If you have dental insurance, let us know when you schedule your appointment. We will call your insurance company for pre-approval before you arrive to our office. Our front desk associates will gladly file your claim and accept your copay or deductible or file your claim electronically for prompt, direct reimbursement. We will also be happy to answer questions about your policy, coverage, and estimated out-of-pocket expense.
Payment & Financing Options
For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, MasterCard, and Visa. Please prepare to pay your portion of the fees at your appointment. This helps us keep overhead costs low so we can keep treatment costs reasonable. Dr. Vanderbrook wants nothing to come between you and a healthy, full, and vibrant smile. If you’d like to explore financing options, we recommend CareCredit, a trusted company that offers low and no-interest loans to qualified applicants. Please call us if you have questions.
