AZPerio considers it a distinct privilege to assist in each patient’s care; every patient is provided with the treatment plan that our board-certified specialists would recommend for their loved ones and friends.
AZPerio’s fees for treatment will vary depending on the specific needs of the patient and the treatment plan our specialists prepare in collaboration with the referring practice. An AZPerio team member will discuss the fees for treatment and each of the available payment options before treatment begins. We want the patient to make the most informed choice possible.
Payment for Services
To reserve the procedure appointment, full payment (based on an estimate of the services scheduled to be provided) for AZPerio’s services is expected 48 hours prior to the treatment being performed. If the patient has dental insurance, AZPerio will estimate that portion of the fee for which the patient is responsible. Payments can be made with cash, check, debit and/or major credit cards.
The discount for payment in full, at the time treatment is scheduled, varies, based on the method of payment, as follows:
- Cash/Check: 5%
- Debit/Credit Card (Mastercard/Visa/AMEX): 2.5%
In the event the fee estimate is less than the actual fee for the services rendered, the patient will be responsible for the balance. If the estimate is more than the actual fee for the services rendered, a refund will be issued within 30 days.
Patients are reminded they will also be responsible for services related to their related treatment that takes place at the office of their referring practice.
A patient’s healthy smile is meant to last a lifetime; the AZPerio team wants to make it as easy as possible for each patient to receive the recommended treatment as soon as possible.
We encourage patients to ask our team members questions about their insurance coverage. Typically, dental insurance offers patients limited coverage for services provided by specialists. It is important that patients maximize their annual insurance benefits for preventive care in the offices of their general dentistry practice.
AZPerio’s specialists are an in-network provider with Delta Dental Premier. However, we accept all insurance plans. Because we’re not contracted with specific insurance companies, we have more flexibility with our fee schedule. This benefits our patients because it allows them to maximize their insurance benefits in the general dentistry practice. Regardless of insurance carrier, we’re delighted to optimize utilization of dental insurance benefits with those patients fortunate enough to have it. Additionally, it’s important to emphasize that the referring practice recommends patients to specialists based on the specialists’ long-term effectiveness in achieving the clinical and aesthetic goals, irrespective of dental insurance.
AZPerio’s team members are always available to help patients with insurance claims and paperwork. We'll work with your insurance provider to help you maximize your benefits. Upon request, we will provide patients with a predetermination of their insurance benefits.
