At Williamson Pediatric Dentistry, we are dedicated to serving your children while attempting to keep the cost of dentistry as convenient as possible! We will make sure that we provide you with the information necessary to be fully informed of the cost of treatment prior to beginning any of the necessary treatment your child may require. We will arrange a definitive method of payment at that time. We do understand that emergencies can occur and financial arrangements can be discussed upon request, however, we do expect payment at the time of service.
Methods of payment include:
1) Payment with cash, check, or credit card on the day of service.
2) Pay Online Go to Payment Portal
3) WPD Dental Savings Plan
Our dental savings plan is a payment option for patients who don’t carry dental insurance and pay out of pocket for dental / medical services. It allows families the option to pre-pay for select services on an annual basis for a set cost. If you are interested in learning more about this option, please speak to one of our administrative / financial team members, and they will be happy to discuss these plans in more detail with you.
4) Insurance – As a courtesy to our patients, we will file insurance claims on your behalf. Please make sure that you have an up-to-date insurance card containing an accurate mailing address and telephone number so that we may determine your benefits ahead of time.
(In order to best verify your insurance, please have the subscriber’s name, date of birth, social security number, and policy member ID number/group number available when calling to schedule. Failure to have the correct information available could delay verification of benefits, which could result in cancellation or rescheduling of your child’s appointment until a later date.)
We are currently a provider for most major private insurance PPO policies including: Ameritas, Blue Cross Blue Shield of TN, Cigna, Delta Dental, Guardian, Humana, MetLife, & United Concordia. We do not accept any HMO plans at our office.
We are NO LONGER IN NETWORK with federal or state-funded insurance plans as of December 22nd, 2022 including: DentaQuest (CoverKids) & TennDent (Medicaid).
For more information about insurance benefits for your child’s new patient visit, please have insurance provider information ready when scheduling their appointment, as it will facilitate our team in verifying your benefits prior to their first visit. We will call the insurance company prior to your visit to confirm your child’s eligibility. If there is an issue with the insurance verification process, we will notify you at least 24-48 hours in advance so you are aware of the issue. If insurance is not able to be verified, treatment will require payment on the day of service, or treatment will be rescheduled until insurance benefits can be verified accordingly.
