The Best Choice For Children
Children have vivid imaginations, and their first experience with a dentist can either lay the foundation for a lifetime of dread or inspire positive feelings toward dentistry that lead to a healthy and beautiful smile for decades to come. Our Chattanooga TN dentist offices are designed with children specifically in mind, evoking a sense of fun and adventure. Just like our buildings, our experienced, friendly staff – led by Doctors Chad S. Eslinger, D.D.S., J. Wayne Newman, D.D.S., Jason Blair, D.D.S., Dr. Jennifer Flanagan, D.D.S., and Dr. Nicki Brock, D.D.S. – are here to serve your children with the highest level of care and compassion. We go the extra mile because your trust is everything to us.
Office Policies & Mission
Your scheduled appointment time has been reserved specifically for you. We request 24-hours notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment. After missing your second appointment without notifying us 24 hours in advance, you are subject to being charged an additional fee.
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. Your estimated patient portion must be paid at the time of service. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services and allow them 45 days to render payment. After 60 days, you are responsible for the entire balance, paid-in-full. If you have any questions, our courteous staff is always available to answer them.
Financial & Insurance
Your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. For the convenience of our patients, we accept Visa and MasterCard, as well as offer third-party financing through CareCredit. Charges are payable at the time of treatment. Please ask a member of our staff, and we will review our payment options to accommodate your financial needs. If special arrangements are needed, please talk to our office manager prior to receiving service.
We are preferred providers for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Tennessee, Delta, Metlife, Cigna and Aetna. We will file most all insurances. We only file for primary insurance only, and do not file secondary insurance. We will fully attempt to help you receive full insurance benefits; however, you are personally responsible for your account, and we encourage you to contact us if your policy has not paid within 30 days.
