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.

Should you happen to miss or be late for your appointment without 24-hours’ advance notice, we may request you make a $64 down payment to reserve future appointments. We have reserved your appointment time in order to give you enough time for our best quality work, as well as respect the schedules of other patients.

Dental Insurance:

Peninsula Family Dentistry is pleased to be a preferred provider for Delta Dental/Washington Dental Service*.  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.

We accept the following plans:

In Network/Preferred
