Fees, Payment, & Insurance


checkout desk in the office of Austin biological dentist Joan SefcikJust as no two patients are alike, no two treatment plans are alike. It is impossible to give an accurate cost estimate for services such as safe mercury removal or cavitation surgery, for instance, without knowing the specifics of your dental health situation and your particular needs.

Once we have conducted a thorough examination and diagnostic workup, we will review the costs up front with you as part of your treatment plan before proceeding with any work.


We expect you to pay in full at the time any services are provided, unless other arrangements have been made.

We accept all major credit cards, as well as payment by cash, check, or money order.

In some cases, financing options are available. Ask us about this when we go over your treatment plan with you.


We do accept some insurance but do not participate in any HMOs. If you have insurance, let our front office staff know. Be sure to bring your insurance card to your appointment.

Do keep in mind that your coverage is a matter between you and your insurer. We cannot guarantee that they will cover any particular service you receive in our office, in part or in full. Whether you have benefits or not, you are the one responsible for making sure your treatment is paid for.
