Office Policies

Late and Cancellation Policies

Your appointment time has been reserved especially for you, and often requires specialized preparation. If you are unable to keep your appointment with Dr. Gadol, please notify us at least 48 hours in advance if possible. This courtesy enables to offer your appointment time to another patient who may be waiting to be seen sooner. A late cancellation fee will be assessed if you cancel with less than 48 hours notice. If you arrive late by 15 minutes or more, we reserve the right to cancel your appointment, assess the late cancellation appointment, and reschedule your appointment.

Payment Policy

Payment is due in full at your appointment for all treatment rendered that day (your total balance for self-pay patients, and your estimated portion of cost for insured patients). Treatment includes (but is not limited to) emergency visits, examinations, consultations, and any procedure that is performed.

We accept the following forms of payment: cash; personal checks; Visa, Mastercard, and Discover credit cards; and Visa debit cards.

Insurance

As a courtesy to you, we will file a claim to your primary insurance carrier. At the time of your appointment, we will calculate the approximate amount you owe for that day’s services. We estimate your portion based on your dental benefits, including any deductibles and coinsurance not covered by your insurance company. If your insurance company pays less than we anticipated, you will receive a statement for the balance. Payment is due at the time of your appointment for your estimated portion of all treatment rendered that day, as well as any previous balances.
