Our fee for endodontic therapy is determined by the complexity of your case and reflects the quality of care we deliver. Our innovative office systems—such as outsourced billing and specially trained, multi-tasked staffing—enable us to maintain our fees at a level approximating what most dental insurance plans allow. We have many convenient options for you to pay for your care. We accept cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. In addition, we can arrange for interest-free financing through CareCredit, with which you will not have any out-of-pocket fees at the time of treatment. We offer a discounted fee if you pay in full the day of service.
