Insurance & Payment Policies:
Monterey Peninsula Dental Group accepts most insurance policies. We do not accept Denti-Cal or Medi-Cal.
Please note that full payment is due at the time of treatment. We accept cash, personal checks, and credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card and American Express.
We will gladly bill your dental insurance plan for you. However, you are ultimately responsible for the entire cost of your treatment. If, for any reason, your insurance plan does not pay part or all of your care, or is slow to pay for services, you are responsible for the remaining balance. We try to estimate the amount that your insurance plan will pay. However, it is important to understand that it is only an estimate and is subject to change. Patients must pay the portion of the fees that are not covered by insurance at the time of treatment.
In special cases, a three month payment plan may be set up with your credit card. Ask us about other payment options.
An adult accompanying a minor child for treatment is responsible for full payment of any fees incurred.
Failure to cancel an appointment with at least two business days’ notice may result in a missed appointment charge.
See what our happy patients are saying:
Dr. Falkel is an outstanding practitioner. The procedure was remarkably easy and I felt absolutely no pain. Yesterday evening, at 9 PM, Dr. Falkel called me at home to make sure that I was doing fine. I think he goes well beyond what one would expect.
I am very grateful to have the fine dental care by Dr. Stephen Ikemiya. He and his hygienist keep me feeling that my teeth are well cared for. As a senior citizen, 80, I appreciate this.
This staff of professionals works together beautifully. The tooth cleaning and examination glide from one to the other with no waiting. Angela, the angel who cleans teeth is thorough but gentle. I cannot recommend this group more!
