Payment Options

Payment Options

For your convenience, our St. Louis dental office accepts cash, personal checks, money orders and major credit cards including, VISA, MasterCard, AMERICAN EXPRESS & DISCOVER.  Payment is expected at the time services are performed. When more extensive dental care is necessary, financial arrangements can be made with our office. 

       
 
Insurance

As a service to our patients, Gary B. Wiele, DDS accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care and PPO out-of-network.  We are not part of any managed care network.  Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.

Financing

For all dental procedures completed in one visit such as fillings, extractions, and cleanings we require payment in full if you do not have dental insurance. For procedures which require two visits such as crowns, bridges, dentures and partials we require no less than 50% of the total at the first appointment and then the remaining upon completion. If these options do not fit your budget you may speak to our office staff for financing information through Care Credit.

If you have dental insurance, we require your co-insurance payment the day of service. Your portion will be estimated using the information provided to us by your insurance company. It is important to remember that we file your dental insurance as a courtesy. You are ultimately responsible for compensation for services we provide.

Testimonials

I was not sure what to expect when I decided to try straightening my teeth for my daughter's wedding. There were only three months until the wedding and I really did not believe there would be significant results in such a short period of time. Furthermore, with a wedding in the near future, I was hesitant because I was not sure financially that this would be possible. I was extremely happy after meeting with Dr. Wiele and hearing what could be done with my teeth with the funds I had available. The entire three months went so quickly and the results were beautiful. I was amazed when the braces came off a week before the wedding and my teeth looked so straight and beautiful. The photographer did not have to ask me to smile for the pictures! If you would like to improve your smile, no matter what the reason or the financial situation, talk to Dr. Wiele and his staff. I'm sure glad I did!

I would like to thank Dr. Wiele and his staff for an unbelievable dental experience. I went from being terrified of dental work to actually being able to relax and rest in the chair. Thanks for the miracle you worked with my smile. I am truly grateful and realize I smile more than ever. I never knew it would look this awesome. You really are gifted from above!
