Financial Policy


Dr. Cohen and staff are proud to be a team whose primary mission is to deliver the finest and most comprehensive periodontal services available today. We are concerned about your dental care and want to ensure you that it is performed in the most responsible manner. In order to assist you with the investment in your dental health, we have outlined our payment policy.

We make every effort to keep down the cost of your care. You can help by paying upon completion of each visit. Other arrangements can be made with our office manager depending upon special circumstances. An estimate of the charge for any procedure or surgery you may require will be given to you upon request. If you have any dental and/or medical insurance we will be glad to fill out the proper forms based on the information you include on your patient registration form.

Please remember that insurance is considered a method of reimbursing the patient for fees paid to the doctor and is not a substitute for payment. Some insurance companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount,co-insurance or any other balance not paid for by your insurance company. After 30 days from your procedure date, unpaid balances will incur interest at the rate of 1.8% per month unless other arrangements are made in advance. You will be responsible for all collection costs, attorneys fees, and court costs.

Greater St. Louis Periodontics & Implants accepts cash, check and Visa, Mastercard or Discover.
