Dr. Chris Anderson is a Pankey© Institute trained Dentist.

Insurance Information:

Most insurance plans are accepted by Dr. Anderson's office.  If you are covered by a dental insurance plan, we will gladly file your insurance forms for you with a request to have the benefits assigned to Dr. Anderson's office.

If you have an "PPO” type of dental insurance policy, please check with your insurance company to make sure you are allowed to go “out of network” with your insurance.  Dr. Anderson’s office is NOT "in network" with any insurance company.  Many "DMO" and "HMO" dental plans only allow "in network" dentists.  It is important that you understand how your insurance works with our office.

You are responsible for all costs not covered by insurance.  On more complex and costly procedures, some of your share of the expense (not covered by insurance) will need to be paid at time of service.

Dr. Anderson is not a Medicaid provider.

We do offer a senior discount for those 60 and older.

To keep our overhead as low as possible, please remember that appointment times are reserved especially for you, so if you are unable to keep your appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance so that we may offer that time to another patient.

Please follow the guidelines below so that costs are understood before treatment:

New Patients:  Please check with our staff before your first visit to make sure that we can work with your insurance company.  Also, new patients should complete the new patient forms available on the Forms link.

Existing Patients:  Each calendar year, if your insurance has changed, please consult with our staff regarding your new insurance.

Pre-certification:  If you wish, Dr. Anderson's staff can provide you an estimate of the charges for any recommended treatment.  You can then consult with your insurance company before the procedure is scheduled.  We also can help with the pre-certification process on larger cost treatments, if you desire the assistance.

Payment Options:

Dr. Anderson's office accepts Apple Pay, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, Cash, Checks, and Care Credit (see below).  We do not accept American Express.   On large cases (over $1,000) we do offer a cash/check discount.  We also offer a senior discount for those 60 and older.

Care Credit (setting up a payment plan):

Once you have visited with Dr. Anderson and have discussed your treatment plan, if a payment plan is needed, one option that we recommend is to talk with our co-office manager Mike regarding the benefits of CareCredit.  Mike can provide you with some possible payment options (and the estimated monthly payment amount for each option) that CareCredit and Dr. Anderson provide.  Some of these payment options are interest free if the CareCredit payment terms are exactly followed.   You can also go to CareCredit Payment Calculator to see all of the payment plans that CareCredit offers.  Note that Dr. Anderson may not offer all of the options displayed by this calculator, based on the cost of treatment.  Mike can help by showing you which payment options are available at Dr. Anderson's office given your treatment cost and can provide a one page summary of payment options, terms and the estimated monthly payment associated with each option.

If CareCredit is something you are interested in, please note that CareCredit is a medical-use-only credit card.  Be aware that it is your responsibility to understand the terms and conditions set forth by CareCredit.  Failure to make payments and follow CareCredit contract terms could cost you additional interest and could affect your credit rating.  CareCredit makes payment to Dr. Anderson for services performed.   All financial responsibilities are between you, the patient, and CareCredit.

If you wish to apply for a CareCredit Healthcare credit card, call 866-893-7864 or click here: CareCredit and apply.  Once your application is accepted by CareCredit, they will give you your CareCredit card with a credit limit.   Please make sure that the CareCredit payment plan you choose is one that is offered by Dr. Anderson.   When using your CareCredit card at Dr. Anderson's office to make payment, please make sure that you tell us which payment terms you wish to use.  These payment terms are passed to CareCredit as the card is used and determines the amount you are billed monthly.

If you have any qustions about how CareCredit works with our office, you can call our office during normal business hours and ask to talk to Mike, our certified CareCredit office resource.  For CareCredit application and payment questions, contact CareCredit at 866-893-7864.
