Financial Policy

Office Financial Policy

Waterfront Endodontics is committed to providing you with the best possible care. We have created a financial policy to help make it affordable for you to receive the necessary dental care to attain a healthy smile. Our financial policy explains how our specialty office handles payments for dental services. Fees quoted will be based on the specific tooth involved, the type of treatment necessary, and the extent of the treatment.

The following options are available to patients without dental insurance:

  1. Our consultation fee is due at the time of service. Our current maximum fee total for a consultation is $286.00.
  2. Payment in full upon completion of treatment will receive a 5% courtesy.
  3. Three equal monthly payments, with the first estimated payment due within 30 days of finalizing treatment.

We accept checks, cash, Visa, Discover, MasterCard or American Express as forms of payment. We also offer interest-free financing plans through Advance Care (see details below).

If these options do not work within your dental budget, please speak with our office coordinator to request a custom written financial policy. All written financial policies will include the $286.00 consultation fee prior to beginning treatment.

Patients with Dental Insurance

A $250.00 deposit will be required before beginning dental treatment unless otherwise discussed.

If you provide our office with your dental insurance information at least 2 business days before your appointment, our staff will obtain an estimation and verification of benefits. If given on the day of your appointment, we will obtain this information within two business days for an estimation and verification of benefits. You may scan/fax your card front and back or provide us with the following information from your card.

  • Patient Name
  • Patient Date of Birth
  • Subscriber Name (if different from patient)
  • Subscriber Date of Birth
  • Member/Employee ID
  • Group Number
  • Insurance Company Name
  • Insurance Company Address (if on card)
  • Insurance Company Phone

As a courtesy, we will submit your insurance claim at the completion of your treatment. Please keep in mind, insurance companies routinely indicate that coverage verification does not guarantee payment and quoted amounts are estimates only.

We will bill your insurance, and upon receipt of their payment, we will send a statement with your remaining balance.

Advance Care

Advance Care offers revolving credit products provided by leading banks. Interest-free periods are available and include 6-month and 12-month programs for those who qualify. The length of the interest-free period is determined by the credit history of the applicant. for more information and to apply.

NSF checks

If a check is returned for insufficient funds we will present the check a second time on your behalf. A $25 charge will be added to your account to cover the bank fees we incur and any future payments for services must be paid by cash, credit card, cashier's check or money order.

Collection Fees

All fees incurred by Waterfront Endodontics to collect an outstanding balance will be paid by the patient whose failure to pay his/her account caused these fees to be incurred. Submission to treatment implies consent as outlined in this service agreement. Any courtesy treatment will be removed from your account and the full balance will be submitted to collections.

The best dentist visit I have ever had! Everybody was fabulous and made me feel very welcome and comfortable. I can't thank you all enough for everything that you have done for me and fixing my tooth!

Klickitat Patient

Dr. Chapman has the softest hands I have ever experienced. This along with his Dalai Lama-esque delivery had an extremely calming effect on me.

Hood River Patient

I will be pleased to provide a positive recommendation - you were all very professional and put me at ease (well, as much as I can be, given my dental anxiety :)).

North Bonneville Patient

Went the extra mile to squeeze me in on an emergency basis. All is well. Thanks!

Arlington Patient

A great experience overall. I was greeted by name by the front office staff. The assistant was very professional and courteous. Dr. Chapman was responsive in treating any discomfort I felt. When I left the insurance billing was explained to me and I was welcome to contact them with any questions. I received a follow-up phone call the next day to see how I was doing.

The Dalles Patient

This is the place to go - people are awesomely caring spirits - oh, the work Dr. Chapman did was superior too!!!

The Dalles Patient

One of the best dental/endodontic procedures I've ever experienced. I felt totally relaxed and as comfortable as a person undergoing dental work can be. Dr. Chapman and the entire staff were great. 10 out of 10 Rah-Rah points. Would highly recommend his service for anyone needing to have an endodontic procedure. Waterfront Endodontics rocks!

The Dalles Patient

Kudos to Dr and staff for fully explaining what was going to happen and for the follow-up. Very professional. The" what was going to happen" portion was accomplished so I would understand and the follow-up was an unexpected surprise. Taking time to call and make sure that everything was okay was very nice. Appreciate all that was done.

The Dalles Patient

Thanks for showing me the photos of the tooth, it helps to see the cause of my pain.
