dental insurance paperDental care is an investment in your oral health and your overall health. The cost of treatment varies with the type of procedures you need. Dr. Daniel or Dr. Robert will always review your treatment options with you, and you will always have the final say on the procedures that are best for your dental health and your budget. We never move forward with dental treatment without a financial arrangement in place, so there are no surprises, and you will always understand what your out-of-pocket cost will be.

Accepted Forms of Dental Insurance 

At Ackerman Family Dentistry, we accept many types of dental insurance. Our dentists are in-network with a few plans, including Delta Dental, Cigna, Blue Cross, Regence, and Aetna. Even if your plan is not on this list, you may still be able to utilize your insurance benefits at our Boise dental office, so be sure to discuss your payment options with our knowledgeable treatment coordinators.

Financing Options

Third-party financing with companies like CareCredit can also help patients break more complex treatment plans into monthly payments they can easily afford. We are happy to provide more information about CareCredit and even help you apply for it.

To our valued patients, we wanted to communicate to you the efforts we have been making to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Our highest priority is the health and well being of our patients, employees, and our community, and it is with these priorities in mind that we have created several new protocols. In addition to our standard disinfection and sterilization, we will be doing the following:
  • We are screening patients over the phone for symptoms or exposure, taking patients' temperatures, and having patients use hand sanitizer upon entering the office.
  • We will be scheduling extra time for each appointment for thorough office sanitation and to promote proper social distancing.
  • We ask that patients use a pre-procedural rinse which will eliminate a majority of bacteria and viruses prior to treatment.
  • All public areas will be disinfected routinely throughout the day, and all surfaces are treated daily with a 24hr treatment that eliminates bacteria and enveloped viruses (such as COVID-19)
  • The air in treatment and hygiene rooms is being filtered with HEPA air filtration units throughout the day.
  • We are limiting the use of the waiting room to ensure proper social distancing and patients are welcome to wait in their car if they are more comfortable doing so.
  • All treatment providers will be wearing masks when interacting with patients.

We will continue to monitor the situation and adapt as needed, and we hope to keep everyone healthy and safe through this trying period, and moving forward.
