Financial Policy

Patient Billing

For your convenience we accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and CareCredit. We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients, therefore payment is due at the time service is rendered unless other arrangements have been made in advance. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact us at Southwest Dental Care Phone Number 573-634-4909. Many times, a simple telephone call will clear any misunderstandings.

Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage.

We will send you a monthly statement. Most insurance companies will respond within four to six weeks. Please call our office if your statement does not reflect your insurance payment within that time frame. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated. We can make arrangements for a monthly payment plan but this must be done prior to the actual procedure.  We are always willing to accept prepayment on procedures, allowing you to pay over time and have the funds for treatment on the day of the procedure.  


As a service to our patients, we offer CareCredit, a healthcare credit card to assist you in paying for needed treatment.  Our office manager can speak with you about the various financial options available.  If you would like to apply for a CareCredit card before coming into our office, click on the “Apply Now” button below.  For current CareCredit card holders who would like to pay their bill, click on the “Pay Your Bill” button below.
