Financing and Insurance

Quality dentistry + exceptional care + financing options equals less stress in the dental equation for you and your family.

Patient Expectations

Payment is due at the time of service.

Even if you have insurance, your portion of payment is due at time of service. We ask that you pay your deductible and any percentage due on the day of service. We allow 45 days for your insurance to pay. You will be billed for the balance if payment is not received within this time, as you are ultimately responsible for the entire fee.

Please inform Morningside Dental if you’ve used any of your annual dental benefits for other services (oral surgery, orthodontics, etc.). The more information we have, the better we can help!

Payment Options

Morningside Dental accepts cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover. We also partner with CareCredit to offer low- and no-interest financing.

We are direct providers for the following insurance companies:
Anthem Blue Cross
BlueDental (preferred provider and PPO)
Delta Dental (premier provider)

Don’t see your company on the list? Don’t worry! We work with MANY insurance providers and will happily submit claims for your insurance company upon request.

Patient Discounts

Morningside Dental offers a discount for work that is paid in full at the time of service.

For seniors (age 60+), we provide a 10% discount for work paid in full at the time of service.
For all patients, we provide 5% off all work paid in full at the time of service. If you have insurance, however, and if Morningside Dental files for your insurance payment, no discount is available.

I’m a good brusher. Do I still need to come in for a cleaning every six months if my teeth look and feel fine?

No matter how faithful you are with at-home dental hygiene, it is important to schedule regular dental hygiene appointments. Tartar buildup cannot be removed even with regular brushing and flossing, and it must be removed by a dental hygienist to keep your gums as healthy as possible. Routine visits allow our team to monitor any changes in your oral health and check for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or excessive wear. We also provide an oral cancer screening with each cleaning and exam.

Do you take new patients with Title IX, state aid, or the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan?

We are accepting new patients through Healthy and Well Kids in Iowa (also known as Hawki), which provides health coverage for uninsured children of working families. We are not currently taking new patients with Title IX, state aid, or the Iowa Health and Wellness Plan. We work with all patients to provide quality care and reasonable payment options.

When should I consider dental care for my child?

Dr. Kiple recommends that you brush your child’s teeth as soon as the first tooth erupts and instill regular brushing habits for the child’s entire lifetime. Brushing baby teeth can involve a soft-bristled baby toothbrush or even wiping the teeth and gums with a wet washcloth. We suggest that you bring your child for the first general exam and cleaning by at least two years of age. At Morningside Dental, these are known as “Happy Visits”! If you see something in your child’s mouth that causes you concern at any time, please contact us!

Do I have to pay for my appointment out of pocket?

Payment is due at time of service. And even if you have insurance, you are expected to pay your deductible or out-of-pocket portion. Morningside Dental offers a 5% discount for all work paid in full at the time of service.

How often should I brush my teeth?

Dr. Kiple recommends brushing your teeth at least twice daily, and more if possible! Regular brushing helps keep your teeth and gums healthy and clean by removing bacteria-causing plaque.

Do I really need to floss my teeth?

Absolutely yes! Flossing is just as important as brushing…maybe even more important! Daily flossing helps to clean the food and plaque from between the teeth. If food and plaque aren’t removed from between the teeth, bacteria in the plaque can secrete acid that causes decay. There are also a number of other health benefits from flossing, so floss for your general health as well as your oral health!
