All emergency dental services, or any dental services performed without previous financial arrangements, must be paid for in cash at the time services are performed.

Patients who carry dental insurance understand that all dental services furnished are charged directly to the patient and that he or she is personally responsible for payment of all dental services. This office will help prepare the patients insurance forms or assist in making collections from insurance companies and will credit any such collections to the patient's account.

I understand that the fee estimate listed for this dental care can only be extended for a period of 90 days from the date of the patient examination.

In consideration for the professional services rendered to me, or at my request, by the Doctor, I agree to pay therefore the reasonable value of said services to said Doctor, or his assignee, at the time said services are rendered, or within five (5) days of billing if credit shall be extended. l further agree that the reasonable value of said services shall be as billed unless objected to, by me, in writing, within the time for payment thereof. I further agree that a waiver of any breach of any time or condition hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any further term or condition and I further agree to pay all costs and reasonable attorney fees if suit be instituted hereunder.

I grant my permission to you or your assignee, to telephone me at home or at my work to discuss matters related to this form.

I have read the above conditions of treatment and payment and agree to their content.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here to help you get the dentistry you want or need.

I agree that the facility, Higginbotham Family Dental, or any other collection or servicing agency or agencies retained by the facility (together referred to hereafter as “collectors”) to collect any money that I owe to the facility may contact me by telephone or text message at any number given by me or otherwise associated with my account, including by not limited to, cellular/wireless telephone numbers which may result in my incurring fees for the call or text message. I understand, acknowledge and agree that the collectors may contact me by automatic dialing devices and through pre-recorded messages, artificial voice messages or voice mail messages. I further agree that the collectors may contact me using e-mail at any e-mail address I provide to the facility or is otherwise associated with my account.
