Financial Options


For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards. Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office.


We are a fee for service dental practice. This means that we do not have any agreement with any dental insurance carrier (non-participating provider). All fees are to paid directly from you to Dr. Valauri.

We will assist in providing you with all of the required information for processing your dental claim.

However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

Time is reserved exclusively for you. If you are unable to make a scheduled appointment, please notify our office at least 24 hours prior to your appointment to avoid a cancelation fee.
