Scheduling
 
Our typical office hours are Monday-Wednesday from 8:00AM to 4:00PM, and Thursday from 8:00AM to 12:00PM. Certain holidays or continuing education meetings may cause temporary changes to this schedule. You can click the link for a list of closures. Please allow approximately ninety minutes for your initial visit. If you have pain or an emergency situation, every attempt will be made to see you on the day that you call.
Cancellation Policy
 
We understand that sometimes circumstances arise that may prevent patients from keeping appointments.  However, we ask that you give a minimum of 48 hours business days notice if you need to make any type of appointment change for appointments less than 2 hours. Appointments longer than 2 hrs require 1 week notice. This allows us the opportunity to give another patient valuable time with one of our dental care providers.  A $75/hr fee will be assessed when less than the minimum notice is not given for missed appointments.
Patient Information
Financial Policy
 
Fees for treatment are due at the time of treatment after deduction of your good faith estimate of insurance benefits.  The balance due is the patient’s responsibility, and is not modified by whether any third party (insurance) pays for all, part, or none of the charges.  Your account becomes delinquent if not paid 30 days after billing, and at that time a finance charge of 1.5% of the unpaid balance will be charged every month until the balance is paid in full.  You may view or download the formal Privacy and Financial Agreement that you will be asked to sign at your initial visit.
 
We accept Debit cards &,              , <               ,                        
 
We do not accept cash or checks. A 5% senior discount is available if you are 65 years or older.
Insurance
 
As a courtesy to our patients with dental benefit plans, we will make a good faith estimate of your benefits and defer billing you for that amount for up to 90 days.  We are not able to continually verify insurance coverage for routine dental cleaning appointments, and any amount due at the time of service is your responsibiilty. We are not a participating provider with medical insurance carriers, therefore, you will be responsible for paying all charges at the time of service except that portion estimated your dental insurance carrier may provide. We will file all medical and dental claims on your behalf as well as provide any information required by your insurance carrier to ensure it is processed in a timely manner.  We will follow-up with your dental insurer only when claims are not processed in a timely manner and attempt to expedite payment.  
 
If your insurer denies coverage, or if we otherwise do not receive payment within 90 days from filling your claim, the amount will then become due and payable by you.  Remember that your coverage is a contract between you and your insurer and/or your employer and your insurer.  Although we will make every effort to help you obtain your benefits, we cannot force your insurer to pay. We deal with many insurance plans and do our best to provide you with accurate coverage estimates based on the information available. Please keep us informed of any changes to your insurance so that all information is current.
 
We are currently a preferred provider with the following major insurance companies:
 
WDSWDS Premier, WDS PPO, Cigna, Dentemax, MetLife, Premera, Regence, and L&I.
 
We will file your claim to any insurance company, but your benefit will be greater when you are insured with one of the companies listed above.

Patient Testimonials
 
Dr. Owen Bargreen, Psychologist:
 
Dear Dr. Nicoara and Staff: I have always had some trepidation about visiting the dentist. When I was told that I needed gum surgery, I expected the worst. When I first arrived at Dr. Nicoara's office, I was pleasantly greeted by classical music and a relaxed atmosphere which set the tone for a painless procedure. Dr. Nicoara's staff were friendly and courteous and I was impressed with the overall professionalism in the office. Dr. Nicoara greatly contributed to the relaxed atmosphere. I could tell that she took a great care in her patients.
 
Following the procedure, there was a small period of some discomfort, but Dr. Nicoara and her staff did everything they could to ease the discomfort. After a few weeks my gums looked good as new. I could tell that she was a very skilled periodontal surgeon. I would recommend Dr. Nicoara to anyone who has been needing periodontal surgery and I have been recommending her to all my friends and colleagues. Thanks.
 
 
Naomi:

Dear Dr. Nicoara and staff: You and your entire staff made me feel comfortable and secure and I knew I was in very capable hands which greatly eased my fear and anxiety.  Dr. Nicoara was genuinely interested in my well being and is very passionate about what she does.  I was very happy with the communication process.  I understood what to expect and felt that my concerns were heard and all my questions answered.  I will refer all my family and friends to her as I have complete trust and faith in her judgement and abilities.

Anita:
 
Dear Dr. Nicoara and Staff: Thank you for being the best at what you do! I feel so blessed that you caught my cancer early.  After two surgeries they were able to remove all the cancer - the margins looks great.  Thank you, Thank you! I’m so grateful to you for being persistent in taking a biopsy and referring me to a great team at the University of Washington.
 
 
Kathy:
 
Dear Dr. Nicoara and Staff: It has been a pleasure to work with you on the financial part of my periodontist visits. I appreciate your cheery attitude.  I must say Dr. Nicoara and her staff really make a difference in getting a patient at ease.  From the lady who changed her mind twice on the implants and created havoc for all of you: thanks for your patience.
