Financial & Insurance Information
Serving Lakeview, West End, Metairie & Bucktown
At Canatella Dental we pride ourselves on providing safe, effective, and affordable treatment for every member of the family. We understand that the financial side of dental treatment can become confusing at times. To make things easier for you, we have fostered working relationships with the top insurance companies. We also offer discount programs and payment systems for qualifying patients. Above all else, we want you to have a clear understanding of your financial and insurance options, as well as your patient responsibilities.
Insurance and Patient Co-payments
Dental insurance can play a significant role in your treatment fees. This is why it's important to properly fill out your new patient paperwork with any insurance information. Submitting your paperwork in advance allows us to prepare your benefit materials before you receive treatment. This includes any fees and co-payments dictated by your insurance policy. We are happy to work with your insurance provider and answer any questions you may have in regards to your policy.
When working with insurance, it is important to note that you are solely responsible for fees and co-payments. Our team is happy to assist you when filing a dental or medical claim, but we ask that you follow our financial policy when payment is due. Talk with our staff during your consultation to learn more about our financial policy.
Appointments and Consultations
If you are a first-time patient, we will ask you to schedule a consultation visit. During your consultation Dr. Canatella will perform a comprehensive exam and review your dental and medical histories. Most regular appointments consist of a checkup and professional cleaning. If we notice any potential instances of decay, damage, or gum disease we may recommend additional treatment. Once we develop an appropriate treatment plan, our front office team will provide you with a detailed list of fees. We can also provide an estimate of out-of-pocket fees based on your insurance policy.
Being proactive about your dental care can help your smile stay beautiful and strong for a lifetime to come. But the truth is, it’s not always easy to make certain dental procedures fit comfortably within your budget. If you or a loved one need something a little bit out of the norm, like a dental crown, root canal, braces, or any other treatment, you don’t want to delay getting the help you require for financial reasons. Patients of Canatella Dental can say YES to excellent dental care, because our office accepts CareCredit.
This is a third-party financier that works like a credit card that you use only for medical and dental expenses. Simply swipe your card at the time of your appointment, then make small, comfortable payments at the predetermined rate that works best for you and your budget. Convenient patient financing helps you make smarter decisions about your dental care without stretching your budget to its limits. Most people are eligible for CareCredit, and decisions are made instantly - find out if you are approved today!
