Frequently Asked Questions

We are currently open on Fridays and Saturdays by appointment only. We understand that most of our patients are busy with work and family so weekends are sometimes the best available days. We do our best to accommodate those patients on an as-needed basis, depending on the treatment.

We know that dental treatment can be expensive without some help from insurance, which is why we have designed an in-office membership plan for our adult patients without insurance. For more information about this please visit here.

We accept all PPO insurance plans and are contracted, or “in-network”, with Delta and Cigna PPO plans. However, to provide patients with the highest quality clinical care utilizing the best materials and dental laboratories, we are unable to be “in-network” with many insurance companies. We take great care and pride in bringing you the highest quality clinical care as opposed to seeing a high volume of patients, rushing through procedures, and using cheaper materials that might break down easily.

We also do not accept HMO, DMO, or Denti-Cal. We know that insurance can be confusing and overwhelming, which is why we are always here to help answer any questions you might have.

 

We are pleased to accept all PPO insurances at our Tarzana dental office. Maintaining healthy teeth and gums is crucial for overall health and wellness, and dental insurance often makes the difference between receiving and forgoing dental care.

At Dr. Zadeh’s office, we have dedicated staff who will review your coverage and ensure that you receive the maximum benefit. We are happy to provide pre-treatment estimates so you understand what your insurance covers and what it does not. We’ll also take care of filing your claim for you on your behalf and following up for payment if necessary.

Sometimes it’s helpful to have the option to extend your payments out over several months with financing. We are pleased to offer CareCredit, a third-party lender that offers options that allow you to receive dental care today and finance the balance. If you pay the balance within the agreed six-month period, CareCredit will not charge you any interest.

We would also be happy to explain our interest-free in-house payment plans offered on a case by case basis.

If you have insurance or financing questions, please call our Tarzana dental office at (818) 456-0039, and a knowledgeable member of our front office team will be happy to answer your questions.

The estimate is a portion paid by the insurance from the total cost owed for your treatment. Upon your request, we do a courtesy “pre-authorization” for you, where we send the procedure codes for the treatment to your insurance company in advance to see what they will cover. However, there are some insurance plans that won’t give you an exact amount that they will pay for the treatment, which is why the “pre-authorization” letter does not guarantee that the insurance company will pay what it says. We always work hard to make sure that you get the most out of the insurance benefits allotted to you, yet, you must always understand that these are still all estimates and not final amounts.
