Our competitive rates are only one of our distinguishing features. As soon as you enter the door, you will find our office comfortable, the atmosphere friendly, and our technical services exceptional.

At Neighborhood Dental you do not have to expect Michigan Avenue fees. Frankly, we are not the cheapest office around but we are far from the most expensive. Everybody is looking for value. Value doesn’t just mean what’s the least expensive. It has been said "Price is what you pay; value is what you get." We have always tried to give our patients more than what they pay for. Whether it is more attention to details and an emphasis on patient comfort or better looking and longer lasting restorations, we strive to give value for your hard earned dental dollars. We are proud of our fees in this regard and know our patients appreciate this. Our number one source of new patients is consistently from very happy existing patients.

To maintain our unique and pleasant environment, you can be assured you will not experience a high-pressure sales pitch. We accept cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We offer low-interest or interest-free payment plans through Springstone Patient Financing and CareCredit.

Dental Insurance

- If you have dental insurance, your deductible and co-payments are due the day of service. In most cases we will bill your insurance carrier directly for your convenience, but you are always responsible for the full charge of your dental services. We help our patients maximize any insurance benefits they have.

- We make every effort to keep dental care affordable while maintaining the high level of quality to which we have dedicated ourselves. Our philosophy of treating you is not compatible with the restrictive nature of managed care plans (HMO’s). Our office is not a contracted provider with any HMO and you would have no coverage in our office under this type of insurance.

- Traditional insurance (indemnity type insurance) does not stipulate where you can go. You can see any dentist and receive the full benefits of the policy. If your benefit plan is a PPO, you will be able to use it in our office. Your benefits may be slightly less than if you went to a dentist on their restricted list of contracted providers. However, you may find that your out of pocket expenses are less at our office. We do not nickel and dime you to death or over treat in an attempt to make up for the low fee schedules of plans. Our patients choose us because of who we are and what we do and not because an insurance company forced them to choose a doctor from a list.

- We are committed to serving you in an ethical manner. When we say we work for you, we really mean it. We are not beholden to any insurance company. While we are not a provider for HMO’s we do work with traditional insurance and PPO’s. Consequently, we don’t have to run the office like a bus station. You won’t find our reception area crowded. It’s not because we are not busy. It’s because we have chosen to work for you and only you during your visit.
