Financial Policy

Patient Billing

For your convenience we offer several different payment options: 

Cash or Check

For patients who have no insurance, we ask that you pay for your dental services at the end of each appointment. This entitles you to a 3% cash discount. If you are a senior citizen (65 years+), please ask about our special courtesy just for you.

VISA or Master Card

We are happy to accept these credit cards for payment at the end of each appointment. However, none of our discounts apply when using credit cards.

Dental Insurance

We honor most dental insurance plans and will assist in processing all claims that are assigned. At the end of each visit, please pay your portion for any treatments rendered. We do provide estimates for services, but they are only estimates. The final balance and settling of your account won’t be known until your insurance claim is paid. Please see the insurance page to learn more about our insurance policies. 

Note: You, not your insurance company, are financially responsible for the entire dental bill, including any balance due after your insurance company has paid its portion.

Additional Notes

  • For all procedures requiring laboratory work, payment must be made at the end of each appointment to cover laboratory expenses. 
  • Our office requires a minimum of 48 business hours (preferably longer if possible) notice prior if you cannot make your appointment. Please remember we are closed on Friday and do not count to our business hours. A $60.00 per hour charge will be assessed for missed or canceled appointments without proper notification. 
  • We reserve the right to run random credit reports on accounts. 
  • Monthly payment plans are available on large treatment plans. Financial arrangement must be made prior to your first treatment appointment. Interest will be added to unpaid balance over 30 days at the rate of 1.5% per month (18% per year).

If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at Lynnwood Family Dentistry Phone Number 425-771-0165. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.
