Financial concerns should never keep you from getting the oral care you need. Westwood Village Smiles offers a variety of payment options to its patients in order to make great oral hygiene and a life free from dental pain and embarrassment accessible to everyone.
Most general dental procedures including routine cleanings, exams, and fillings are covered under basic dental insurance. In order for some more extensive procedures to be covered (such as wisdom tooth removal and oral surgery) additional conditions may have to be met. Some cosmetic procedures may not be covered at all.
Health insurance can often be used to cover the cost of a dental procedure if that procedure has a direct impact on an individual’s overall health and wellbeing. For example, extraction of multiple wisdom teeth is often covered as a surgical procedure if those teeth are impacted or are growing abnormally (such as into the jawbone).
It may be difficult for you to makes sense of all of this but the experienced office team at Westwood Village Smiles has been dealing with complex insurance issues since 1946. They have the experience to explain your coverage to you and, if necessary, can contact your insurance provider directly for clarification.
Westwood Village Smiles accepts credit cards. This allows patients to spread payments over time, if necessary, and get much-needed procedures done right away to avoid long-term damage or extended discomfort.
We accept most major card but if you have a question about yours just give us a call at (310) 254-9355.
CareCredit Financing is an easy way for individuals to finance all of their necessary dental work—cosmetic, restorative, or emergency. This allows patients to pay for needed procedures without worrying about lump sum payments. The CareCredit program is often a lower-interest (sometimes no interest) alternative to charging procedures to credit cards.
