Financial Policy

Our primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive oral surgery care available. An important part of the mission is making the cost of optimal care as easy and manageable for our patients as possible by offering a variety of payment options.

Payment Options:
-Cash, Check, Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card
-Care Credit

Although we do not offer in-house financing, we can work with an outside financing company called “Care Credit”, that may meet your needs. Care Credit is a separate line of credit for health care needs. You can apply online at www.carecredit.com or call toll free 1-800-859-9975.

TorriMed Oral Surgery and Dental Implants requires payment prior to the beginning of your treatment. If you choose to discontinue care before treatment is complete, you will receive a refund less the cost of care received. All co-payments are due upon check-in at the front desk.

Other arrangements can be made with our office manager or the doctor depending on special circumstances. An estimate of the charge for any procedure or surgery you may require will be given to you upon request. If you have any dental insurance we would be glad to fill out the proper forms, and work with your carrier to maximize your benefits and bill them directly for reimbursement for your treatment, but please complete the information on the provided form.

Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others a pay a percentage of a charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance or any other balance not paid by your insurance company within 90 days from the date of service. Finance charges accrue from the initial date of service but will not be applied unless the account becomes 90 days delinquent. You will be responsible for all collection costs, attorney’s fees and court costs.

TorriMed Oral Surgery and Dental Implants charges $25.00 for returned checks.

We understand the financial aspects of healthcare can be overwhelming; we do our best to help you understand your obligation and clear any misunderstandings. If you have any questions regarding your account, please call our front desk staff at (310) 792-7775.
