Insurance Information( * mandatory to fill )

We ask that you realize that we do not work for an insurance company. Rather we work 100% for our patients. We feel that insurance can be a great benefit for many patients and want you to know we will do everything in our control to ensure you get every benefit allotted in your insurance contract. However, the treatment we recommend will always be based on your individual needs, not your insurance coverage. - Dr. Niegsch and Dr. Krook

We are in-network for the following insurance companies:

- Delta Dental

We are out-of-network for all other insurance companies, however we are more than happy to file your claim for you.

Please provide a member of our front desk team with your insurance card. If you do not have your card with you, please send a photo of the front and back to smile@dentistryatsomerset.com Please provide the information below

Cancellation Policy

We require a minimum of 48 hours-notice for all rescheduled or canceled appointments. Individuals who fail to provide 48 hours-notice will be charged a $50 cancellation fee. Without this notice, we are unable to assist other patients who may have needed our care.

 

I have read the above policy and agree to pay at the time of check-out unless other arrangements are made prior to treatment. I also acknowledge and agree to abide by Dentistry At Somersets cancellation and rescheduling policy:
