Financial policy


Reception area, where our administrative team handles insurance claims and payment for services

Dr. Maron’s office offers a variety of payment options to make dental care affordable for you:

  • Cash
  • Checks
  • Credit cards—VISA/Mastercard/Discover card
  • Interest-free financing from Care Credit if your portion of the payment is more than $500 and if you qualify (Click the link for more information.)
  • DenVantage—in office membership plan for patients without dental insurance. You pay a modest monthly fee, and all of your regular preventive care is included at no additional cost. In addition, you receive savings on all other dental services.


Our office works with more than 500 insurance plans. Some of our treatments are completely paid by insurance; other treatments are only partly paid by insurance. We participate in the Cigna PPO network and are certified by Medicare to Provide oral appliances for sleep apnea.

By not participating in insurance plans, we save you money. How? Patients often come to our office for a second opoinion after going to a dentist on their insurance plan list and being told that they need 13 fillings or 5 crowns or several root canals. What these patients have in common is an insurance plan that pays poorly for simple procedures like fillings. Doing more expensive procedures, like crowns, helps compensate for poor insurance plan fees.

Our office gets reasonable fees from such treatment as fillings, so we have no need to upsell patients a more expensive procedure. We try the least expensive and simplest procedure first. Only when the simple procedure fails, do we move on to a more complex and expensive treatment. Thus, the patient saves money.

To minimize your out-of-pocket expense, our office will accept payment from your insurance company, with the following two provisions:

  • You pay your portion of the co-pay at the time of your visit (The co-pay is a cost estimate of the expected difference between what the insurance company pays and our fee.) and
  • You have a valid credit card on file with us

Note: If you have a dental HMO (called a DMO), you must go to a dentist on the Preferred provider list of your insurance company plan because the DMO plan will not pay for treatment in our office.

By law, insurance companies are required to pay claims in 45 days. Unfortunately, many companies ignore the law. If we do not receive payment from the insurance company within 75 days, we will charge the balance to your credit card and ask you to discuss reimbursement directly with your insurance company.
