  Insurance & Payment
Dr. Sexton, Facebook


Payment is expected at time of service.

If you have insurance benefits, you will be expected to make a payment for the estimated portion not covered by your insurance plan.

We offer these payment options:

  • Cash
  • Personal Check
  • Credit Card - We accept MasterCard, Visa, Discover, and American Express.


Our office will file insurance claims for both "in network" and "out of network"plans. If we are "out of network" for your plan, make sure your plan has "out of network" benefits.

Dr. Sexton is double-boarded as both a Pedodontist (children's dentist) and Orthodontist (braces for children). He is listed as a "Specialist" and not a "General Dentist". We file insurance for both specialties if you have the benefits available.

Dental insurance is intended to cover some but not all of the cost of your dental care. Most plans include coinsurance provisions, a deductible and certain other expenses, that must be paid by the patient at the time of services.

Insurance plans have different percentage levels of benefits. Different yearly maximums, deductibles, age limits and frequencies. As a courtesy we will file for you but it is important you understand the above limitations.
