Payment Policy

For your convenience we accept most major credit cards. We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost. Therefore, payment is due at the time services are rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. With approved credit, accounts can be opened with CareCredit, which can provide 12 months with no interest or 90 days same as cash. We do our best not to let cost prevent you from completing your treatment.

Insurance: As a convenience, we will file your claim with your insurance company in an effort to help you maximize your dental insurance benefits. We will also gladly provide dental x-rays and a written diagnostic report should your insurance company have any questions about the services provided.
Although we will file your insurance with any carrier, we are a "listed provider" for:

United Concordia
Blue Cross and Blue Shield
Delta Premier
Tricare (we are not providers, but can file under "Dental Preferred").
Even if we are not on the list of your providers, we can file as an out-of-network provider, as a further convenience for our patients.

We are not a participant in any “discount” plans, HMOs or DMOs, nor do we accept Medicaid or Medicare.

Please remember you are ultimately responsible for all fees incurred during your dental treatment in the office of Dr. Tracy Holmes DDS regardless of your insurance coverage.


Infection Control

Dr. Tracy Holmes and our entire team follow procedures recommended by several federal agencies: the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). These measures include:

Disinfectant hand soap
Gloves and face masks
Chemical disinfection of countertops and surfaces
Sterilization of all equipment before every use
Disposable materials
We sterilize all reusable equipment, including dental hand pieces. We use an autoclave, a device that kills bacteria and viruses by steam, heat and pressure. The best defense against disease is information. The more you know, the better equipped you are to make wise decisions about your health care. The more you know about our daily procedures and policies, the more comfortable you will feel.

We take particular care in the water our patients receive during their treatments. We use "closed-water systems"-no city water- for patient safety, and we purge our waterlines every morning to ensure the cleanest water possible goes into their mouth.

Infection controls and universal precautions protect clients and staff alike. Everyone benefits from rigorous infection control — you, your dentist and the dental team. The cornerstone in a good and safe dental practice is the element of trust. You should feel free to discuss this topic with Dr. Holmes and receive a straightforward answer.
