Financial Protocol

Regular dental visits including examinations, cleanings, X-rays, fluoride treatments, sealants, and fillings are important to keep teeth healthy.  For your convenience, we accept cash payments or personal checks as well as all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover.  We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time of service unless other arrangements have been made.

Financial Protocol and Dental Benefits


Our office is happy to assist you with your dental benefits. We accept most dental benefit plans, with the exception of HMO plans. We will gladly submit your claims on your behalf.  We will also go over treatment costs, estimated dental benefits, and your personal investment as requested.

It is very important to us to minimize any confusion regarding how our office works with dental benefit plans. While we work with most dental plans, Dr. Olson is a "preferred provider" with Delta Dental Premier and Dr. Courtin is a "preferred provider" with Delta Dental Premier and PPO. A "preferred provider" is defined as the doctor or practice having a contractual agreement with the dental plan provider.

We have many families who have dental benefit plans in which our doctor is "out of network" which simply means that we do not have a contractual agreement with those companies. Please be assured that you are able to come to us for dental care, and we are happy to discuss your dental plan with you.

Our relationship with you and your family is of utmost importance. The details of dental benefits can be confusing and we want to remain as clear as possible. Please be assured that our treatment recommendations with always be based on what we believe to be the best for your health. Those recommendations will never be swayed by limitations imposed by a dental plan.
