SAY CHEESE ...Patient Appointment and Cancellation Policy Dear Valued Patient, Our purpose is to help every patient who walks through our doors achieve their dental goals in a timely manner. Once you have booked your appointment with us it means we have reserved time in our schedule exclusively for you, and that time cannot be used to treat another patient. We understand that sometimes rescheduling and cancellations may be necessary; however, we require at least a 24 hour notice for these changes. Some appointments may require a deposit to reserve a specific time or amount of time, and the below fees may be deducted from this deposit. Any established patient who fails to show or cancels/reschedules an appointment less than 24 hours before it is scheduled to take place, will be subject to a cancellation fee of $50* - due in-full prior to your next appointment. This fee is not reimbursable by your insurance company and you will be billed directly for it. Any established patient who fails to show or cancels/reschedules an appointment without a 24 hour notice a second time will be charged a $100* fee and will be required to pay for the appointment in advance. Any established patient who fails to show or cancels/reschedules an appointment without a 24 hour notice a third time will be charged a $150* fee, be required to pay for all appointments in advance, and may be dismissed from the practice. Please understand that it is your responsibility to remember your appointment dates and times in order to prevent any missed appointments which result in a cancellation fee. As a courtesy we do provide reminders for all appointments starting 2 weeks prior. To avoid cancellation fees and potential dismissal, please provide cancellation notice at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Your appointment should only be cancelled or rescheduled by calling the office during business hours. Text and/or email does not serve as a method to cancel unless it is acknowledged prior to the 24 hour policy. Keep in mind an appointment scheduled on a Monday for the following week will need to be cancelled prior to the weekend to meet the proper 24 hour cancellation as we are not open on Saturday and Sunday. Should you have any questions about our policy, we are here to serve our patients and believe that good communication is key to excellence in dental care. Patient Signature: Date MM slash DD slash YYYY Payment Consent All estimated co-pays are expected at the time of service. We wish to prevent any misunderstandings about payment for professional services, therefore please be aware you are responsible for all fees. Insurance is a contract between you and a third party to reimburse for covered dental benefits. We cannot guarantee insurance company payments if you have not met eligibility, deductibles or utilization requirements. Insurance is not a substitute for payment and you must understand your own benefit plan. If you subscribe to a DMO or an EPO plan, you may have reduced benefits or no coverage in this office. Seeing as how we accept and submit to all insurance plans, you are ultimately responsible for knowing whether you are in-network or out-of-network with our office. If you would like a written preauthorization for dental treatment, it is your responsibility to request this prior to the actual appointment. After my dental insurance company has paid its portion of the dental services rendered at the office of Highpoint Dental Care, l hereby gives my consent to this office to charge any outstanding balance to my account. This balance may include deductible, denied procedures as well as non-covered services, and will be charged to my account after a period of 60 days from the time of treatment or upon receipt of the insurance, whichever comes first. You will receive an EOB (explanation of benefits) before we receive payment. If you have any concerns about your portion, please call. Name (Print): Signature: Date: MM slash DD slash YYYY Special Note to Patients A professional cleaning is a medical procedure that must be prescribed by a qualified health care practitioner (dentist or dental hygienist). Legally and ethically, a diagnosis must be made to prescribe a cleaning procedure. As there are several types or required cleanings to address various types of gum disease, an examination and radiographs are required by the dental practitioner. After the exam and radiographs have been completed, the doctor will determine the order of treatment. In some cases, existing dental conditions may have to be addressed before cleaning one's teeth. In these circumstances, other types of treatment may be required first to provide for the health of the patient. Highpoint Dental Care is committed to helping our patients achieve their dental goals, needs, and desires. Using diagnosis to recommended procedures is in line with the American Dental Association and current clinical research. They are also in the interest to maintain the longevity of natural teeth, implants, and prosthetics. I have read the above statement, understand it, and have been given the opportunity to ask any questions about it.
