Financial Policy and Dental Insurance
Regardless of the dental insurance type or coverage you may have, we ask that you be responsible for our treatment fees for the initial examination visit. After we have gathered your dental insurance information regarding eligibility, coverage and deductibles, we will be happy to process any dental insurance forms you have. We do this as a courtesy to you so please keep us informed of your most recent dental insurance information. Any phone numbers, identification numbers and addresses will be greatly appreciated. Please keep in mind that Dr. Okawachi is not a preferred provider for any dental insurance program or dental HMO. If your dental insurance is a PPO type, you will most likely be able to utilize it in our office by going "out of network." Your coverage may not be as thorough as in an office that is signed up, but you should feel confident that your child's dental health is our utmost priority. If you have a dental PPO, please feel free to contact your dental insurance carrier to find out how they handle coverage in our office.

If further dental care is necessary, we will provide you with a written estimate and an estimate of your share of costs. We will be happy to discuss any financial considerations you may have.

We accept payments in the form of cash, check, American Express, VISA, Mastercard and Discover card. We also have available CareCredit, a dental debit card that you may apply for. This particular card provides credit for dental services interest free for the first six months.
