Although we do not accept insurance as full payment, we will do all we can to help patients derive maximum benefits from their insurance coverage. We provide an "attending doctors" statement for each treatment visit. This can be attached to your claim form, and is accepted by your insurance company. When requested, we will provide a "pre-treatment estimate" of anticipated expenses to be submitted to your insurance carrier for a "Pre-determination of Benefits.". This lets you know how much the insurance carrier will reimburse for services performed here.

The procedure to place an implant takes 30 to 60 minutes for one implant and only 2 to 3 hours for multiple implants. The number of appointments and time required, vary from patient to patient. Drs. Pollack, Odrich and Sarmiento will bring great precision and attention to the details of your case. Prior to surgery, you may receive antibiotics and for those who request it, oral sedatives, intravenous sedation or nitrous oxide (laughing gas). These options are discussed with you at your consultation appointment.
