Financial Policy

Thank you for choosing Tusculum Dental Care. Our primary mission is to deliver the best and most comprehensive dental care available. An important part of the mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable as possible by offering several payment options.

Payment Options

We accept the following forms of payment:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Visa
  • MasterCard
  • Discover
  • CareCredit Financing
  • In-house Financing

Please note, we offer a 5% courtesy accounting adjustment to patients who pay for their treatment with cash or check prior to completion of care for treatment plans of $500.00 or more.

More about financing options

Special financing through CareCredit is an affordable option that allows you to receive the necessary dental care that you or your family needs while making small monthly payments with little to no interest (for those that qualify).

Convenient Monthly Payment Plans* from CareCredit

  • Allow you to pay over time
  • No annual fees or pre-payment penalties

Our Payment Policy

Tusculum Dental Care requires payment prior to the completion of your treatment. If you choose to discontinue care before treatment is complete, your refund will be determined upon review or your case. 

We accept payment in thirds for treatments under $3000. For plans requiring multiple appointments, alternative payment arrangements may be provided. For larger, more comprehensive treatment plans of $2000 or more, a 20% deposit is required to secure your initial treatment appointment.

In-house Financing

As a way for patients to avoid financing through a third-party, we offer special in-house financing as well for treatments under $1500. We charge 21% interest on all past due accounts. It is essential that you review correspondence from our office, which may include your bill with the amount due and due date.

Dental Insurance

For patients with dental insurance, we are happy to work with your carrier to maximize your benefit and directly bill them for your treatment.** Please note, we provide treatment costs based on an estimate that your insurance has agreed to pay. Keep in mind that sometimes the final cost may vary slightly from our pretreatment estimate. You are responsible for any amount not covered by your insurance benefits.

Cancelation Policy

We understand that unexpected events occur in life, but as a courtesy, please notify us within 24-hours of your appointment should you need to cancel or reschedule. A fee of $50 is charged for patients who miss or cancel more than 2 times in a
calendar year without 24-hour notice.

Additional Policies

Tusculum Dental Care charges $30 for returned checks.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help you get the dentistry you want or need.

* Subject to credit approval
** However, if we do not receive payment from your insurance carrier within 60 days, you will be responsible for payment of your treatment fees and collection of your benefits directly from your insurance carrier.
