Authorization and Release

To the best of my knowledge, the questions on this form have been accurately answered. I understand that providing incorrect information can be dangerous to my child’s health. It is my responsibility to inform the dental office of any changes in my child’s medical status. I authorize the dentist to release any information including the diagnosis and the records of any treatment or examination rendered to my child during the period of such dental care to third party payers and/or other dental practitioners. I authorize and request my insurance company to pay directly to the dentist or dental group the insurance benefits otherwise payable to me. I understand that my dental insurance carrier may pay less than the actual bill for services. I agree to be responsible for the payment of all services rendered on my behalf of my dependents. I understand there is a twenty-five (25) dollar broken appointment fee per half hour my child is scheduled without twenty-four (24) hour notice. Chronic failed appointments will be subject to dismissal from our office.

Patient Attendance Policy

Children's Dentistry of Rancho Cucamonga

9469 Haven Avenue, Suite #100 Rancho Cucamonga, CA 91730

Please be aware of the following attendance policy that will be effective immediately. In order for us to provide the best service to our patients it is important that every patient attend their appointments as scheduled. Poor attendance will no longer be acceptable and we will sadly have to dismiss those who continue to be unreliable.

OUR EXPECTATIONS

If you are unable to make your appointment as scheduled we will expect you to inform us AT LEAST 24 HOURS BEFORE your appointment. We understand that emergencies and unexpected changes will occur at the last minute; therefore, we have provided some leniency in our policy.

"Missed Appointment"

It will be considered a "missed appointment" if you miss your appointment without notifying us in advance. Two "missed appointments" within a 12 month period will result in dismissal from our office.

"Less than 24 hour cancellation"

If you call to cancel your appointment less than 24 hours before your appointment it will be considered a "Less than 24 hour cancellation". Three "Less than 24 hour cancellation" in any 12 month period will result in dismissal from our office.

Fee for "missed appointment" and "less than 24 hour cancellation"

A $25.00 fee will be charged for each "missed appointment" and "Less than 24 hour cancellation".

I have read and understand the policies listed above.

Our Financial Policy

Non-insured patients are expected to pay in full with cash, check, credit card or CareCredit the day service is rendered.

As a courtesy for patients who are covered by insurance we will submit an insurance claim on your behalf. We accept assignment of benefits. This means you must sign the portions of your insurance that “assigns” payment to our office. Most dental insurance plans do not cover 100% of the cost of your treatment. Because of this and the extreme delay in receiving payment from the insurance company, you will be asked to pay your deductible and portion of charges the day services are rendered. All estimates are based on information provided to us by your insurance company and are not a guarantee of payment. Only after a claim is submitted and reviewed by your insurance company can final payment be determined. We are a non-preferred provider for most PPO insurance plans and this may also affect your out of pocket cost. If you are unsure if we are a provider please feel free to ask the receptionist.

Sometimes our dentists may recommend services that are not covered or exceed the frequency limits of an insurance plan. Our dentists do not follow insurance dictates in diagnosis or recommendations. When services are not covered by insurance the responsibility for payment is yours. It is your responsibility to know which services are covered or not covered. If you do not want a specific procedure done it is your responsibility to make an assistant or dentist aware of this decision. We do not check your benefits at each visit. Should there be any changes with eligibility, coverage, frequencies, deductibles or should you change insurance plans it is your responsibility to update the receptionist.

We will estimate as closely as possible to your coverage but until we actually receive your processed claim it is just an estimate. We will assist you in dealing with your insurance company but ultimate responsibility lies with you. After forty-five days any remaining balances not received from your insurance company is due in full from you. All unpaid balances over thirty days are subject to a finance charge of 18.00% as well as a five dollar late charge. Insufficient checks are subject to a $25.00 bounced check fee as well as the balance. Delinquent balances will be subject to a collection charge. Please feel free to ask the receptionist if you have questions.
