The cheapest cavity to fix is the one you never get! Proper diet, hygiene, and routine preventive care with Dr. Sophie are the best ways to save money at the dentist.
Payment is due in full at each visit.
If using your PPO insurance benefits, the co-payment due will vary depending on your contract with your insurance company.
The legal guardian accompanying the patient to their appointment is ultimately responsible for payment. We are not able to send statements to other persons.
We accept Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Debit Cards for payment.
For patients without PPO Insurance Benefits ask us about our Flat Rate Preventive Care Plan. This program offers significant savings over traditional "a-la-carte" dental billing.
PPO Insurance Friendly

Large treatment plans
Keep in mind that annual maximums, deductibles and covered services vary widely among policies, even within the same insurance company. It is not uncommon for routine pediatric dental treatment to be excluded from the benefits plan.
We do not participate with Denti-Cal or any EPO/HMO plans. If you have one of these plans, you will be responsible for the full cost of treatment. We offer flat rate preventive care visits that offer significant savings over traditional "a-la-carte" per service dental billing.
Please understand that we file claims to your dental insurance as a courtesy to you. We have no relationship with your insurance company and are not responsible for your benefits coverage, your plan's fee schedule, maximum allowable fees/benefits, deductibles, or how they process and handle your claims.
All insurance estimates are based on the information provided to us by your insurance company. Keep in mind that they are ONLY estimates and there are many reasons that actual coverage may vary from the estimate provided by your insurance plan. Ultimately the guardian is responsible for payment for all services provided in our office regardless of insurance coverage.
If you have questions about your benefits package that we cannot answer, please contact your employer's benefits coordinator or your insurance company directly.
