Appointments
We know you have many choices when choosing a Dentist in Durham, NC so we have made requesting an appointment a simple process via our Web site. If, for any reason you cannot keep a scheduled appointment, or will be delayed, please call us as soon as possible.

Office Financial Policies

Thank you for choosing our office for your dental needs.  We realize that every person's financial situation is different.  For this reason, we have worked hard to provide a variety of payment options to help you receive the dental care you need and deserve. This allows you to enjoy a healthy and beautiful smile with respect to your budget.  Dental treatment is an excellent investment in an individual's medical and psychological care.  We are always available to answer your questions or assist you in any way we can.   

To maintain the practice operations and prevent potential misunderstandings, we ask patients to accept and adhere to the following financial arrangements regarding their dental treatment.  We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and most major credit cards.  Payments are expected at the time the services are rendered.

Any account that has not been paid in full sixty days from the date of service may be subject to a twenty five dollar late fee and collection proceedings.

Insurance and Billing

For those of you with Dental Insurance, as a courtesy, we will assist you in processing your insurance claims.  In order for our office to file your insurance claim, you must bring proof of insurance for each appointment.  Your co-payment amount is due when services are provided.

All incurred charges are ultimately the responsibility of the patient regardless of insurance coverage. We must emphasize that as your dental care provider, our relationship is with you, our patient, and not with your insurance company.  It is important to understand that the contract regarding your dental benefits is between you, your employer, and your insurance company.  The obligation you have with our practice is to pay for the treatment, regardless of the amount that may or may not be reimbursed by your insurance company.  Our office is not a party to that contract or any possible restrictions.  

McDuffie Dentistry allows thirty days, per insurance company, to pay towards services rendered.  After that time period any unpaid balances become the responsibility of the patient.

We also offer a flexible payment plan. Please see our Financial Coordinator for details. We are happy to file insurance for your reimbursement as long as you are free to choose your own dentist.

Late Arrivals:

Patients arriving more than 10 minutes late for an appointment may be subject to being rescheduled, per doctor's discretion.  It is important for the patient and the office to adhere to a schedule in order to provide the best care for the patient.

Reception Area:

Seats are reserved for patients to be treated and/or parents accompanying a child being treated.  An adult must accompany children under the age of 10 at all times in the reception area, for the safety of the child.

Children:

For safety reasons, there is no accompanying a patient to the operatory unless the patient is under the age of 6 years old.  Children may not accompany a parent that is getting treatment performed in to the operatory.  

If you have questions regarding our financial policy, please do not hesitate to ask.  We are committed to providing you with the most positive experience in dental care.
