Financial Policy

At Mark J. Williamson DDS, we believe that finances should never come between you and a beautiful healthy smile. We proudly serve our San Antonio community as a fee-for-service dental office.

We focus on delivering the highest quality services and are happy to assist our patients in filing claims with their insurance companies.

Benefits of a Fee-for-Service Dental Practice

  • High Quality Dental Care from Experienced Dental Professionals
  • Focus on Best Health Options Available
  • Personalized Care and Relationship with Your Dentist

Quality Dental Care is the Priority

Dr. Williamson and his professional dental team make high quality care their top priority. As a patient of our office, you can rest assured that you will be receiving the highest-quality options for treatment, amount of time spent, advanced modern dentistry techniques, state-of-the-art equipment, and the aesthetic artistry of the dental work.

Being a fee-for-service office is what allows Dr. Williamson to provide personalized care for the individual’s needs and wants rather than having an insurance company decide what materials and procedures they deem allowable based on a contracted plan.

We believe patients deserve the best for their smile and overall health.

Payment at Time of Service

We collect payment in full at the time of service. We’re able to accept cash, check, credit cards, debit cards, HSA, FSA, and third-party financing such as CareCredit.

Using Dental Insurance at Our Office

Many people misunderstand that fee-for-service means you cannot use dental insurance. With a PPO insurance plan from most insurance companies, you are allowed to use your out-of-network insurance benefits at whichever dental office you choose. While we are not in-network with any insurances, we are happy to help patients file claims to their PPO insurance after their appointment to take advantage of these out-of-network benefits.

We respectfully ask for payment in full before or on the same day of your appointment whether it’s for a routine exam and cleaning or a procedure such as a dental implant placement. If you have a PPO insurance plan, we can assist you in filing the claim for reimbursement immediately following your appointment with us. The insurance company will then directly reimburse the patient which is typically delivered to the patient’s home address in 2-3 weeks.

We are not a provider for or able to file claims to any HMO, DHMO, or Medicare/Medicaid insurance plans. These types of plans are more restrictive and require the subscriber to go to the assigned dental office that the insurance company chooses in order to use the plan benefits. If you have one of these types of insurance plans, through the marketplace or your employer, we would still warmly welcome you to our office as a self-pay patient.

Additional Financing Options Available

CareCredit is the most popular third-party health credit card and can be used when paying for your appointments. With or without insurance, many of our patients have used CareCredit to make manageable monthly payments for dental treatment and taken advantage of the 0% interest rate when paid within the allotted time frame of 6-24 months based on the amount being financed.
