When you make an appointment with our office, we consider this a mutual commitment and reserve appropriate facilities and staff exclusively for you. Our office policy states that patients must give us 1 business day or 24 hours notice if they cannot keep an appointment. Appointment changes with less than 1 days notice are subject to a service fee based on the number of staff members and the amount of time that was reserved for you.
Payment in full is due the day of treatment, or on upon the start of major treatment. Should a patient have dental insurance with assignment to Dr. Gavin Forsyth Inc, the estimated patient portion will be the amount due.
Payment Options 1. For yourconvenience we accept Cash, Debit, Visa, MasterCard.
2. We also offer short-term financing options but interest charges will apply. All arrangements must be made in advance and are subject to an approval process.
For Patients with Dental Insurance
Dental insurance plans often pay less than the actual fee for service.
Therefore the patient or Guarantor is the responsible party for all dental services provided. Dental insurance in most cases is a benefit with limitations and should not be expected to take care of all costs.
You are ultimately responsible for all costs incurred regardless of what your dental insurance covers!
Finance Charge and Fees
•Balances in excess of 30 days are subject to a finance charge of 2% per month (24% per annum).
•Returned checks are subject to a $25 accounting fee.
