Dental Insurance & Financing
Dental Insurance Information
An important difference at the Summerlin Center for Cosmetic Dentistry is that our first priority is to deliver the very best in general & cosmetic dental care to our guests. Dr. West is not a participating provider of your dental insurance plan. This contrast from other dental offices will grant you greater freedom to choose your best treatment option.
What Does This Mean?
Because our office is not a participating provider, your insurance company cannot intervene to limit the range of treatment options available to you. You are free to choose services of the highest quality, and your choices are not limited by rules, restrictions, or limited reimbursements imposed by your insurance company.
The percentage of each fee covered by your insurance company will be somewhat less. We will provide your insurance company the diagnostic and treatment information, helping you to maximize the reimbursement you receive. We'll even fill out your forms for you.
Reasons for This Arrangement
Our relationship is directly with you and will allow you the choice of treatment options independent of the restrictions imposed by insurance companies. At the Summerlin Center for Cosmetic Dentistry our mission is to provide the highest level of quality and care to our general & cosmetic dentistry guests. Our treatment recommendations often involve procedures that are state-of-the-art, and always represent the best route to your health, comfort, and satisfaction.
Cost-cutting measures in the dental insurance industry make it difficult to maintain a commitment to quality while acting as a participating provider. Many insurance firms restrict the range of treatment options available to their customers. We have chosen not to act as a participating provider in order to free you from these restrictions.
You may be advised that you will save money by using a provider that adheres to the insurance firm's rules and restrictions. In fact, this may be true in the short term, but not necessarily in the long term. Most importantly, you may not receive the level of quality and service you are accustomed to finding at the Summerlin Center for Cosmetic Dentistry
So What's the Bottom Line?
- We are not a participating provider of your dental insurance plan.
- You can use your dental insurance with us.
- We will prepare your claims for you.

- You may choose from any of our convenient payment options.
- We will continue to offer the highest standard in quality, service, and care.
