New Patients

Welcome to the dental practice of Dr. Shannon McCarthy! From the moment you step through our front door, we hope that you realize how different we are from the typical office environment you’re used to. Our East Amherst team prioritizes personalized, one-on-one care with each of our patients, and we take pride in maintaining a casual, laid-back environment that helps you feel perfectly at ease throughout your treatment. If you’ve already scheduled your first appointment, keep reading to learn more about what you need to know before you arrive:

Payment Options

Insurance Coverage

Our financial coordinator is well-equipped to serve patients and file claims for virtually all PPO plans. We’ll always assist you in determining whether or not your treatment cost will be covered by your insurance company. Please note that Medicare, Medicaid, Fidelis and CHP are not accepted but we have many other payment options.

Check and Cash

We welcome personal and certified checks as well as cash on the day of service.

Debit and Credit

We accept all major credit cards, including Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We also accept debit cards.

Payment Plans

Designed specifically for healthcare related expenses like cosmetic dentistry, CareCredit offers financing plans that feature no interest and low monthly payments. There are no annual fees, setup costs, or prepayment penalties. Plans can be spread over a variety of time periods — anywhere from 6 to 60 months. CareCredit can be used to help cover any health care-related expense!

Flexible Spending Accounts

Check to see whether your employer offers a medical spending account. Medical spending accounts allow you to cover your treatment cost using pre-taxed income that is set aside for medical expenses.
