This is why we will go above and beyond to help you through the payment process. From filing any necessary paperwork and claims on your behalf to identifying other available options to help you stay within your budget, you can feel confident that you will not only get the dental care you need but the customer service you desire.

What Factors Can Influence the Cost of Emergency Care?
Since dental emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, so does the restorative care that is required to fix the problem. It’s no surprise that costs can vary depending on the type of injury and treatment you need, which is why your consultation is so important. During this time, you will receive a full examination that will determine your cost estimate.
Some of the most common factors that are considered include:
- Dental Office Location – If the cost of living is higher in a particular area, you can expect services to cost a bit more.
- Insured or Uninsured – If you have dental insurance, you will pay much less than someone uninsured.
- Required Treatment – Depending on the problem you’re experiencing, your dentist in Longmont will recommend one or more possible treatment options, each of which will come with its own cost.
Financial Options Available
Drs. James and Dan Mauer are pleased to be in-network providers for both Delta Dental and some Anthem insurance plans.
Should you possess an alternative dental insurance plan or none at all, we can still help you receive the care you need by helping you enroll in CareCredit, a third-party financier that offers low and no interest payment plans. By choosing this type of financing, you will be able to move forward with treatment that is affordable and closely matches your budget.
