Our Office

Nestled around the sleepy San Lorenzo River and guarded by towering redwoods, Ben Lomond offers its own unique culture. It is home to Highlands Park which hosts the annual Highland Games Festival. In Park Hall the Mountain Community Theater puts on plays several times a year. Local color is on display at establishments like Ristorante Casa Nostra and The Tyrolean Inn with their annual Oktoberfest.

Big Basin State Park to the south and Roaring Camp to the north, as well as the many hiking trails and swimming holes, provide easy access to enjoying this most beautiful region.

We are proud to offer our neighbors in Ben Lomond and surrounding areas over 15 years of experience in dental care with six specialties under one roof – from diagnostic and preventative dental care to tooth implant and oral surgery.

New and existing patients are very warmly welcomed by our caring staff and treated with a gentle approach to all dentistry to allow our patients a positive experience.

To make it easier for our patients, we have made all the patient forms available online which can be downloaded and filled in before visiting our practice. When you reach our practice, one of our team members will assist you with all the requirements such as form submission, Insurance claim cashless treatment, etc. Your appointment with dentist can take 30- 45 minutes depending upon the type of treatment.

Insurance and Payment Options

We currently offer the following payment options for treatment performed in our office:

Dental Insurance Plans
As a courtesy to our patients, we will take care of sending claims to your insurance company for you. We are contracted with the majority of PPO (Preferred Provider Organization) Insurance Plans. We are not contracted with Medicare, MediCal or any HMO plans.

As a contracted provider, or PPO, with an insurance company we have agreed to charge fees based strictly on their fee schedule. Patient portions are based on percentage of insurance coverage, less an annual deductible (if applicable). Most insurance companies have individual plan limitations, frequency limitations and plan annual maximums. New plans may also have “waiting periods” for certain services. We are happy to call your insurance company and find out the specifics for your plan. It’s also a good idea to read through your insurance packet to familiarize yourself with the limitations and benefits of your plan.

As a courtesy to you, we will bill your insurance company but you are responsible for the fees charged by our office, no matter what your insurance coverage may be.  Please keep us informed of any changes to your insurance plan.

While we make every reasonable effort to give our patients accurate cost estimates before treatment, we remind you that insurance policies are agreements between patients and insurance companies (not doctors and insurance companies).

Pre-treatment estimates can be sent to your insurance company before treatment is done.  This is only done on request, so notify us if you would like to be sent a pre-treatment estimate.

Cash Patients (Those Without Insurance)
We have many patients who do not have dental insurance coverage. We are able to offer a 10% discount to cash patients for paying the complete balance the same day as treatment.

Care Credit
We accept Care Credit, which is a credit card provided for health care services. Care Credit offers NO Interest plans, which can be spread over 6, 12, 18 or 24 months depending on the amount charged, with monthly payments as low as $25.00. Care Credit is accepted in many healthcare provider offices. It is easy to securely apply online and can even be done from your smartphone.

Dental Discount Plans
Dr. Creech is also contracted with several dental discount plans. As such, we are able to offer the same lower contracted fees to our patients as though they had insurance coverage. With these plans there is no insurance billing, and patients pay on the date of service as a cash patient. Aetna, First Dental Health, Cigna and CareingtonCare are all discount plans we accept.

Veterans
Dr. Creech is proud to serve the needs of our Veterans. The Department of Veterans Affairs does not have the capacity to provide timely care for all of the Veterans who apply for dental care benefits. Dr. Creech has worked with the VA to supplement the needs of our Vets by offering excellent, professional dentistry and comprehensive treatment plans, which are pre-authorized by the VA. Contact the VA to see if you qualify for dental care through a private provider. 

Accepted Payment Types:

  • Cash
  • Visa/Mastercard
  • Debit card with a Visa/ Mastercard logo
  • Check or Money Order
  • Health Savings Account payments

Cancellation/Missed Appointment Policy

We value our patients’ time and have reserved time especially for you in our schedule. Should you need to change or cancel an appointment, we require 48-hour notice. This advance notice allows us the time needed to call other patients wanting to be seen and offer them your appointment slot.

Our late cancellation fee is $75 per hour scheduled.
