Insurance & payment options

Do you have insurance?

Our office will bill most major insurance.

Twice-a-year dental checkups are covered under most dental plans. After Dr. Starr has met with you and outlined your personalized treatment plan, our patient coordinator will help you understand the cost of treatment.

We’ll work with you to confirm your benefit allowance, review out-of-pocket costs, and find a payment schedule that makes you comfortable.

No insurance? No problem!

We know dental care can be expensive. Our team is here to help you get the care you need and deserve. We’re glad to offer in-house financing in some cases. We also work exclusively with
CareCredit and LendingPoint. Please call (814) 825-2615 for more information.

We also offer a great in-house dental coverage plan. No deductibles, no maximum benefit, no waiting periods or claims to file — just incredible coverage, including 20% off all x-rays and all restorative dental treatment.
