Our Policies

Cancellation policy:

We appreciate it when our patients honor their appointment times, yet emergencies can arise which keep you from making your appointment. We request that whenever possible you provide 24-hours’ advance notice by calling 253.525.4050 so we can help you get rescheduled.


Peninsula Family Dentistry is pleased to be a preferred provider for Delta Dental. Additionally, we are happy to submit your claim to most dental insurance plans and will gladly assist you in estimating maximum benefit you may receive through your plan.

Estimates are just that and sometimes we don’t have access to your insurance plan’s sliding scale of allowable total cost and the percentage they will share. Because your dental insurance policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company, the ultimate financial responsibility for all charges is your own. If the insurance company does not pay your claim, or they do not pay as much as anticipated, you will be responsible for the total balance.

Payment Options:

We want you to be able to comfortably afford your family’s dental care. We are pleased to accept several payment options:

  1. Dental insurance—If you have a dental insurance plan, you will be responsible for any co-pay at the time of service. Please see our Insurance section for more information
  2. Cash, check or credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express) payments. We are happy to offer courtesy discounts for treatment that is paid in full on day of service for those who do not have a dental insurance plan
  3. Many patients appreciate the CareCredit® option for their dental or health care expenses. CareCredit® account offers our patients 12 months financing interest free. It covers your costs for deductibles, co-pays or treatments, so you will not have to delay the care you need https://www.carecredit.com/dentistry/
  4. If you have any questions, please call us at 253.525.4050. We want to help you get the care that you need
