Payment Options

Payment, Insurance, Billing and Financing Options

The cost of treatment depends on each person’s dental needs and treatment choices. After a comprehensive exam, we will present our recommendations as well as discuss alternative treatment options so you can make an informed decision. When requested, we will present a treatment plan complete with fees before treatment is started.

While we want to help you receive the dental care you need, we know financial information is an important part of decision making. At McKenzie River Dental, your Springfield Oregon family dentist, we work hard to make dental care affordable and to help you take full advantage of your insurance benefits.

Prior to your appointment, please call with your insurance information, and we can verify your coverage. The patient portion is due at the time of service.

Financial Policy

In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the following financial policy:

  • The patient portion is due at the time of service.
  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a 5% savings on uninsured treatment when paid with cash or check. This will not apply to accounts that have an existing balance.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
  • For those patients who need more time to pay, there are payment options through CareCredit. You may qualify for 6 months no interest. If you can't pay it off in 6 months, there are other options. Your options will be presented with your treatment plan.

Missed Appointments

When you schedule an appointment, we reserve that time especially for you. We understand that situations arise and you may need to reschedule. As a courtesy, we ask that you contact us as soon as possible. If you cancel less than 24 hours before your scheduled appt, you may be subject to a $50 late fee.
