At Gentling Dental Care, we accept all dental insurance plans that allow you to choose your care provider. We'll be able to answer any questions you might have about your coverage, and we will even file the claims for you so we can make sure you're getting every dollar deserved. Gentling Dental Care is not a network insurance provider because the steep discounts of insurance would not allow the doctors at Gentling Dental Care and their staff to provide you with the quality of care and the level of service you deserve. Give us a call to learn how we can use your particular plan.
Gentling Dental Care is committed to quality and timely care for all of our patients. For that reason, Gentling Dental Care requires patients to kindly give a 48-hour notice for any appointment cancellation or reschedule. If no notice is given, there may be a minimum charge of $50 for the missed appointment. Patients who miss three or more appointments without proper notification may be dismissed from the practice. We will provide 30 days of emergency care for those patients and can also assist in referring the patient to another reputable dental provider. We do realize that emergencies can happen and reserve the right to enforce this policy on a case by case basis for our patients.
