Financial Policy 

Dr. Yamaoka and his staff are proud to be a team whose primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal treatment. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure that it is performed in the most responsible manner.

Once Dr. Yamaoka has examined you, he will put together a treatment plan outlining the sequence, time line and cost for your treatment. An estimate will be emailed to you so that you are aware of your financial commitment. Please ensure that you also have an estimate from your restorative dentist for any treatment they will provide in support of the overall plan of care.

We do not offer payment plans and payment is due in full on the day of service. For your convenience, payments may be made with cash, bank draft, Interac Debit, Visa, MasterCard or American Express.

As a courtesy to patients with dental benefit plans, we will submit the necessary claim forms, receipts, pre-determinations and other information to your insurance provider. In most instances, this can be done electronically to expedite the process. Your insurance company will reimburse you directly for the payment that you are entitled to as outlined in your insurance policy. A pre-determination of benefits will be sent directly to the member or can be viewed on the insurance website. As a courtesy, we ask that you keep us informed of any change to your insurance. It is important that all information about you and your insurance is current.
