Financial Policy

Payment at Time of Service

Waldron Dentistry requires payment in full for your portion at the time of service. We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express, Discover, and cash. From patients with established payment histories, we also accept personal checks.


Extended Credit & Payment Terms

We understand that dental costs can be difficult to manage. For patients who would appreciate a longer term to pay for treatment costs, we work with CareCredit, a company offering six month “same as cash” (and longer terms with interest charges) credit options. Please ask one of our staff members for an application, or visit www.carecredit.com for more information.

First Visit Costs

Some typical costs for a first visit are listed below. In each case, the costs may be slightly different. If you have access to current x-rays, for example, we will not need to take new x-rays. Likewise, if you have had a cleaning recently (in the past six months) and do not require a hygiene appointment then you may only need an exam.

Cost
Hygiene / Cleaning $98 Not necessary if last cleaning within six months
Doctor’s Exam $90 Doctor’s exam fee for existing patients is $54
Panorex x-rays $125 Current for 3-5 years
Bitewing x-rays $71 Current for one year

Missed Appointments

Your appointment is time in our office reserved especially for you and we strongly encourage all patients to keep their appointments. If you must change your appointment, we require at least 48 hour notice.


After-hours/Weekend Emergencies

Occasionally, our patients find the need for after-hours emergency dental care, and we are available to help when needed. In the event of an emergency after regular business hours, a doctor is on call to answer your questions and recommend treatment, if necessary. For after hours treatment, please call our office phone to speak with an employee or leave a message on our after hours phone at 770-625-0408.
