New Patient Registration Office Policy HIPAA
We know every patients has choices when it comes to selecting a dentist in Newburyport, MA, and one way we make the choice easier for patients is be offering maximum convenience. That starts with our simple, online appointment request.
If you’re unable to keep your scheduled appointment date or time, contact us as soon as possible so we can offer your treatment time to our other valued patients. We request 48 hours’ notice for any appointment change. It is our policy to charge a fee for any appointment that breaks these criteria. A broken appointment is one that you either do not show up for or do not cancel prior to 48 hours of your scheduled appointment. If your appointment was scheduled for a Monday you must cancel your appointment by Thursday of the preceding week, as we do not have office hours Friday. We do not accept cancellations left on our answering machine. Such policies are standard practice for health care providers who work one-on-one with patients.
We accept most PPO insurance plans. Contact our office to verify acceptance of your plan. Dental Partners of Newburyport does not participate in HMOs, but we are happy to process and file insurance claims to maximize your benefits. As long as your insurance policy allows you to choose your dental practice, we’re happy to process your paperwork. Contact our financial coordinator if you would like more details.
Patients with Dental Insurance
We attempt to give an accurate estimate of insurance coverage. However, it is your responsibility to understand specific insurance plans and benefits. The amount not covered by your insurance is payable in full at the time of service. If your insurance company fails to forward payment within 30 days of treatment, the responsibility for payment becomes yours.

In order to provide the highest quality care for every payment, it is essential that we collect patients’ out of pocket payments at the time of service. We do our utmost to ensure patients fully understand their payment obligations before treatment begins. If you ever have questions or concerns about financing care, contact our treatment coordinator right away. We are also happy to work with CareCredit, a third party health and dental care financier, to offer patients affordable payment plans.
