Insurance

Dental health care insurance is intended to cover some, but not all, of the cost of dental treatment. Dr. Stewart is a Preferred Provider for many insurance companies and we can submit electronically to most. Please provide us with your current plan information or any changes when you visit. If your coverage is through a local union, please remember to bring in one of their insurance claim forms. We will be glad to submit the insurance as a courtesy for you. If you have questions regarding your coverage, please ask our financial manager, who will be happy to work with you to find the answer.

Infection Control

We follow infection control protocol beyond the standard OSHA/CDC requirements in order to insure your absolute safety. Our modern equipment has been specifically designed to aid in this process. For each patient, all dental instruments and handpieces are heat sterilized. Countertops are chemically disinfected and where applicable, disposable barriers are used.

 

Financial

Our financial manager will be glad to provide a written estimate of recommended treatment including insurance estimates. We offer several different payment options including Mastercard, Visa and Discover. We ask for payment at the time that services are rendered. We will be happy to bill your insurance as a courtesy for you.

 

Emergencies

While true dental emergencies are rare, they occasionally do occur. If you are in severe dental pain that cannot wait until regular business hours, please call (818) 597-0100 and listen to the instructions on how to page the doctor on call. If an emergency should occur during office hours, please call and speak with the front desk. In the event you do not receive a response, please call your local emergency room.
