At Oakwood Endodontics, we deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. The final cost for your root canal will be determined by the complexity of your individual treatment and the tooth being treated. We will provide you with a personalized fee schedule prior to your treatment. At that time, we’ll also settle any concerns you may have about fees, insurance benefits and procedures. We gladly work with many insurance companies to make sure you utilize your benefits.
Our root canal fees include the clinical examination, pulp vitality testing, diagnostic x-rays, the treatment procedure, temporary filling and follow-up examination if needed. The actual fee will vary depending on the tooth in need of treatment and whether or not it has had previous root canal therapy. Typically a patient can expect to pay anywhere from $900 to $1300 depending on the difficulty of the case.
We request payment for our professional services at the time they are rendered. We gladly accept VISA, MASTERCARD, AMERICAN EXPRESS & DISCOVER CARD.
To our patients with insurance, we will work with you to obtain your maximum benefits but ultimately you are responsible for the fees for service regardless of your insurance coverage. At Oakwood Endodontics we will give you the best possible estimate from your insurance provider and accurately file your claim within the next 2 business days. Typically you will be responsible for 50% of the fees at the time of service or your estimated patient portion. The benefits quoted to you are only an estimate provided to us by the insurance company. Most insurance companies will give their final response within three to six weeks. After we receive your EOB (explanation of benefits) from your dental insurance company, we will send you a statement if there is a remaining balance. If there is a credit, we will automatically send you a re-imbursement check by mail. If the claim has not been paid by your insurance company within 45 days or if there is any remaining balance after the insurance, that amount is your responsibility and is due in full at that time.
