Dear Family,

We thank you for choosing us as your pediatric dental provider. We consider it a privilege to serve your children and we look forward to doing so. We are committed to providing you with the highest level of care and building a successful provider-patient relationship with you and your family. 

We believe your understanding of our participation with insurance providers is vital to our provider-patient relationship and our goal is to not only inform you of the practice’s insurance participation status but to also keep the lines of communication open regarding any changes that occur to this status. 

As such, this letter is to notify you that there will be a change in our contractual relationship with many dental insurance companies.  Our practice will remain in network with both Superior Dental Care and Delta Dental plans. These are the two most popular insurance plans in our patient base.  If you carry any other plan, this letter is to notify you that we will be considered an “out of network” provider with your insurance plan on Nov 1st, 2023. 

  We feel it is necessary to go out of network with certain insurance companies so we can provide your family with the best possible service and products.  We want to provide your children with the most skilled and highly trained team members (industry salaries have increased 20-30%).  We also want to provide the safest, best performing, and evidence-based dental materials (supply costs have tripled in the past three years).  We did not make this decision lightly; it took MANY months and lots of analysis to come to this decision.  For us to remain customer service oriented we simply had to make this change.  We pride ourselves on providing one the most positive pediatric dental experiences in the area and we want to continue!     

Please understand that your family can continue as a patient of PedZ Dental! We will gladly verify and submit claims on your behalf to your insurance plan and most insurance companies will reimburse our office directly. Pertaining to potential out of pocket expenses, for many patients, seeing an out of network provider may only cost you $20-30 for a routine cleaning appointment. We would advise you to become familiar with your plan’s benefits.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us at 937-293-6387. 

 

Sincerely, Dr. Stacey & Dr. Cook
