Insurance and Financial Options

Employers offer employees dental benefits designed to share the cost of their dental care, not to pay for their entire treatment. Dental coverage is determined by how much the employer contributes to the plan and NOT by your dental needs.

We accept all PPO plans as Out-of-Network providers and we are happy to process claims on your behalf to maximize your benefits.

Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. As a service to our patients, we will bill insurance companies for services. You are responsible for the copayment at the time of service and are fully responsible for whatever your insurance carrier does not pay. We are always available to answer any questions you may have.


We are In-Network with:

  • Aetna Dental PPO


Healthy Smile Plan

Our Healthy Smile Plan will benefit patients without dental insurance. This comprehensive and customized membership program enables patients without dental insurance to comfortably receive the care they need.

With the Healthy Smile Plan there are:

  • No yearly maximums
  • No deductibles
  • No claim forms
  • No pre-authorization requirements
  • No pre-existing condition limitations
  • Immediate eligibility and not waiting periods
  • No membership cards

The cost of the Healthy Smile Plan is $495.00 per year and $445.00 per year for each additional family member.

The yearly membership can be paid by credit card in two installments. One payment of $247.50 is required at your first visit, and a second payment will automatically be processed one month after your visit.

The annual membership fee will cover all your preventive care. Should you require additional care, the savings are even greater as members receive a 20% courtesy on most dental services.

Annual fee includes:

  • 2 cleanings
  • 2 exams
  • 1 set of full mouth radiographs
  • 1 set of oral/facial photographs
  • 20% off our regular fees for restorative services
  • 10% off cosmetic, Invisalign and teeth whitening services

Like most insurance plans, you must use your 2 checkup visits and cleanings within each membership year - any unused benefits will not carry over to the following year.

Our Healthy Smile Plan is not a dental insurance and can only be used at Dr. Akhavan’s dental practice.

As a service to our patients, we offer LendingClub – Patient Solutions.

LendingClub is a payment program offering a range of plans designed for every budget with low minimum monthly payments, no upfront payment and payments are not due for 3 to 7 weeks.
