PATIENT SERVICES

We provide complete and honest information about treatment options and outcomes so that you can make an informed decision about your treatment.

 

Endodontic treatment is performed only when necessary.

 

We communicate and follow-up with your general dentist to best coordinate your ongoing care.

 

We want you to have an exceptional experience and an excellent outcome.

Sedation Services and Choices

The Team at Puget Sound Endodontic Associates understand the certain "reputation" associated with Root Canals.  While some patients sleep through their treatment others have a high level of fear and anxiety.  We offer those patients different options for sedation:

  • Nitrous Oxide

  • Conscious Sedation

  • IV Sedation 

For our IV Sedation services we have teamed up with

Dr. Peter Pfeiffer, MD with Anesthesia Mobile.  For more information regarding his services click on the button.

Insurance Information
 
In-Network Dental Insurance

If you have in-network dental insurance, we will estimate the portion your insurance is going to pay and collect the estimated remainder from you at your appointment. Please keep in mind, insurance companies routinely indicate that coverage verification does not guarantee payment. If your insurance pays more than the estimated amount, we will mail you a refund check. If your insurance pays less than the estimated amount, you will receive a statement from us.

 

NOTE:  If your insurance company does not reimburse us after 2 submissions, you will be responsible for the remainder of the balance since we were unable to collect from them.   

 

Out-of-Network Dental Insurance

If you have out-of-network dental insurance, we will collect payment in full from you at your appointment. As a courtesy, we will then file a claim on your behalf to your insurance company. Reimbursement from your insurance company will be paid directly to you.

 

If you do not have dental insurance, we will collect payment in full from you at your appointment.

 

For patients with out-of-network or no dental insurance, we provide a $300 discount for treatment (excludes the evaluation).

 

Friendly Front Office Staff with patient
Appointment Cancellations
and No Shows

When you schedule an appointment with PSEA, we prepare equipment and set aside enough time to provide you with the highest quality Endodontic care. Should you need to cancel or reschedule, please contact our office no later than 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment. This gives us time to schedule other patients who may be waiting for an appointment.

 

If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment and have not given us 48 hours notice, you will be considered a No Show. When you reschedule your appointment, we will remind you of this policy.

 

If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment a second time, we will access a $50 charge and remind you of this policy again. Your insurance company will not be charged.

 

If you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment a third time, we will access a $150 charge. Your insurance company will not be charged. We will contact your Dentist who referred you to PSEA and update them that we will no longer reschedule more appointments.

 

We understand unforeseen emergencies may occur and you may not be able to keep your scheduled appointment. Please contact our Office Manager to discuss extenuating circumstances.

 

Voicemail messages left at least 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment time will be acceptable.
