We will work together to structure a treatment plan that will suit your individual needs.

Our goal at Lifetime Dental is to help you maximize your insurance benefits – your smile is our number one priority. But because your dental policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company, not between your insurance company and our office, we do ask for payment the day of service – essentially, you pay Lifetime Dental for services rendered and your insurance company will then reimburse you. Our friendly receptionists will help prepare all the necessary paperwork and submit it electronically so you get reimbursed from your insurance provider in a timely manner. If desired, we will submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance provider before treatment. We at Lifetime Dental will do our best to ensure you receive the maximum benefits of your plan.
