To our loyal patients,
In our latest round of billing over 600 invoices were sent out. While most of these invoices were correct, there was a computer glitch that generated several false involves. If you feel you have received one of these inaccurate invoices, We ask you to do the following:
1. Contact your insurance company and ask for an explanation of benefits. This will inform you of what your insurance company is asking us to collect from you.
2. Gather any credit card receipts or proof of payment you may have and see if there are any discrepancies.
3. Call our office to schedule a time to meet with Kassy, our Insurance and Billing Coordinator for resolution.
Our reports are based on what your insurance company is asking us to collect from you. We ask for your patience as we are sorting through several hundred accounts at this time. We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.
Thank you for your understanding.

The health of your teeth and gums is important to you, which is why you take great care to maintain your dental hygiene at home. However, you could be missing a critical component to your oral health. If you are not visiting your dentist in Downingtown regularly, you are not doing everything you can to protect your teeth and gums from damage. All too often, it is believed that you only need to schedule an appointment if you are in pain or if an issue develops, which is one reason one only two-thirds of adults saw their dentist last year. Contrary to common belief, even if you do not currently have any issues, you need to see your dentist at least twice a year.
