Pricing & Payments

Our office follows the current year of the Nova Scotia Dental Association suggested fee schedule for pricing the cost of dental treatment and services.  We provide a printout of the suggested treatment plan so our patients are aware of the costs involved, by procedure and appointment.  We do expect payment in full at the end of each appointment.  Unfortunately we do not provide payment plans through this office, however, third party financing is available (www.dentalcard.ca).

Insurance Policy

Patients with private dental insurance can assign their insurance benefit to our office, so that only the co-pay is due at the end of each appointment.  We can submit dental insurance claims electronically, so to provide this service please bring the appropriate information to your appointment.  Our office will work with our patients to process their claims, but we do not know the details of all insurance plans.  Also, our dentists and hygienists recommend treatment based on an individual’s need, which may or may not be covered by the insurance policy.  Patients are responsible for all charges for services provided that are not covered by their insurance policy.  We will gladly submit prederminations before treatment to discover what procedures are included.

Privacy

Our patients privacy is of the utmost importance.  We would never share any personal information without prior consent.  To read our full privacy statement please click here.

Missed Appointments

At Berwick Family Dental we reserve appointment time for our patients and make every effort to keep our schedule on time.  If you require a change to an appointment we would appreciate 24 hrs notice.  Failure to show for a scheduled appointment may result in a missed appointment fee of $45-90.  Multiple missed appointments are not tolerated by our office.

Cellphone and Tablet Use

The town of Berwick provides free Wi-Fi so that you can connect and use your devices while waiting for your appointment to start or when you are with another patient.  In consideration, we ask that ringers on cellphones are turned off when in the dental operatories.  During treatment feel free to bring your own headphones if having your own music on makes you more relaxed and comfortable.
