This section of our Web site provides information about dental insurance benefits. We want you to understand how dental insurance works and how to make it work best for you. You should also understand how the treatment Dr. Hamad provided works with your dental plan.

The contract your employer negotiated with your insurance carrier defines your dental benefits. Please read the benefit or insurance plan booklet provided by your employer so that you better understand your benefits. Various dental plans cover endodontic procedures at different payment levels and, as a result, your payment portion may vary. If you do not find the answers to your questions, contact your employer’s plan or benefits administrator who can explain the details.

"After struggling with a toothache, my primary Dentist recommended 2 other offices, however they didn't accept our insurance. We found Dr. Hamad in the directory of providers, however I didn't know what to expect... The office had an immediate appointment open on a Saturday (which was a bonus for me). "

"Highly recommended - Best specialist I've been to by far. Dr Hamad is caring, he takes time to explain procedures in layman's terms, and made me feel at ease. The office has a comfortable, happy environment - I wouldn't hesitate to bring my children, if they ever needed. Very happy! :-)"
