X-Rays

A full jaw (panoramic) x-ray is usually required for oral surgery. If your dentist or orthodontist has taken one within the last six months, you may save yourself this additional fee by picking up that film from the dentist’s or orthodontist’s office before your appointment. Our office has a Cone Beam CT scanner, and this specialized 3-Dimensional image may be obtained for dental implant and other specialized procedures and evaluation of jaw pathology.

Emergencies

Our office is on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. After hour calls are forwarded to Dr. Bamonte or an on-call physician. If you have an emergency such as severe pain, swelling or fever, please notify our office at 724.934.3844.

Fees and Payments

Our administrative staff will provide any necessary information regarding fees, payments, and processing of insurance. We request that all financial arrangements be made prior to service. A variety of payment and financing options are offered for your convenience. Online verification of your insurance coverage will be performed for most procedures. Written pre-authorization may also be obtained. Additionally, we will submit your insurance claim following treatment as a service to you. Some companies pay fixed allowances for certain procedures and others pay a percentage of the charge. It is your responsibility to pay any deductible amount, co-insurance, or any other balance not paid by your insurance company. We participate with various insurance plans including but not limited to Blue Cross and Blue Shield, UPMC Health Plan, Aetna, Delta Dental, Cigna Dental, Met Life, United Concordia, and United Healthcare Choice Plan.
