Insurance Accepted


Please Note:

Dougherty Dental accepts all PPO dental insurance plans. We are not in-network providers for any insurance, but we will file electronic claims as a courtesy service for our patients. Please be aware that you will need to pay for your services at the time of treatment, and your insurance will reimburse you directly for the portion which they cover.


Electronic Insurance Claim Processing

Our team will file your insurance claims electronically for you. This means that we will have transmitted your claim electronically to your insurance provider before you leave our office.

Your insurance reimbursement should be available in a matter of days.


Changes in Insurance

Your employer may switch insurance carriers for you from time to time. If this is the case for you, please inform our office at your earliest convenience so that we can update your information in our system.
