Dougherty Dental accepts all PPO dental insurance plans. We are not in-network providers for any insurance, but we will file electronic claims as a courtesy service for our patients. Please be aware that you will need to pay for your services at the time of treatment and your insurance will reimburse you directly for the portion which they cover.
Electronic Insurance Claim Processing
Our team will file your insurance claims electronically for you. This means that we will have transmitted your claim electronically to your insurance provider before you leave our office.
Your insurance reimbursement should be available in a matter of days.
Changes in Insurance
Your employer may switch insurance carriers for you from time to time. If this is the case for you, please inform our office at your earliest convenience so that we can update your information in our system.
Dr. Dougherty and Dr. Szotko accept CareCredit at our office. We understand that dental emergencies can’t always be put aside, and by offering CareCredit financing to our patients in the greater San Diego area we are able to ensure that you can receive the treatments you require as soon as possible.
CareCredit allows you to begin treatment immediately, and to pay for that treatment over time through a series of low monthly payments that work with your budget.
CareCredit is a type of credit card financing available exclusively for healthcare services. It has no up-front costs and no pre-payment penalties, allowing to you pay over time to free up cash and credit cards for other expenses. CareCredit offers low monthly payment plans for procedures that are not usually covered by insurance, including dental treatments. Best of all, you can use your card again and again to pay for additional treatments for yourself or another member of your family in any practice that accepts CareCredit.
For more information about CareCredit, please contact our office at 858-454-2656.
