Payment Options

Our office accepts cash, check, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA) and Health Savings Account (HSA) cards. Payment of treatment is due at the time of service. For your added convenience, we also offer third-party healthcare financing through CareCredit, so you may:

--   Start treatment immediately

--   Enjoy low monthly payments

--   Choose between several different payment options including no costs up front, and pay no annual fees, no-interest, interest-deferred to low interest fixed-rate plans.

At the end of your dental appointment, patients will be provided with a treatment plan that provides you with estimates of future work procedures and costs.  We take the time to clearly explain any out of pocket costs before beginning treatment. We hope to minimize any concerns associated with financing so don't hesitate to contact our caring team.

Do you accept my Insurance?

Our offices accepts most major dental PPO insurance plans, and even some smaller PPO plans. (We do not accept HMO dental plans).  If you want to learn more about your specific dental insurance coverage, give our team a call today.


Before each dental appointment, please keep us up-to-date with your current dental insurance plan or changes, so we may contact your insurance carrier to verify benefits. Please be prepared to bring your dental insurance card with you or provide a copy before your scheduled appointment. This allows our experienced team to provide you with estimates on proposed treatment at the end of your visit, and help explain your insurance for you.  We will file insurance electronically on your behalf, and follow up with any delays on claims. If you prefer, updating patient information, demographics and insurance can be easily done through our new secure patient portal.


Whenever possible we will maximize your dental benefits, to minimize your out-of-pocket expense.  Keep in mind, we will always give you the best recommendations based on your actual dental needs and not based on your dental insurance plan.  We understand dental insurance can be confusing and are happy to help and answer your questions.

When Experience Matters: Efficient Scheduling and Respectful of your Time

We understand that you are busy, and you have taken time away work or home to be here!  We work very hard to be respectful and efficient of your valuable time.  What does that really mean?

We hate Ridiculous Wait Times as much as you hate them too!

  • Why should it take weeks or months to get an appointment to see your dentist? Dr. Bushong takes pride in being available for his existing patients and we have appointments this week!

  • Have you ever sat in a busy waiting room for what seemed like hours? Have you been forgotten/passed by as dozens of other patients walk by and front-desk personnel barely acknowledge your presence? Worse yet, did they offer you inflexible regimented appointment blocks based on what their computer software and corporate parameters dictate? Not here! In our office, we genuinely look forward to meeting you and getting to know you like friends and family.  Our entire dental office team is part of the local San Antonio community and we work hard to offer you flexible, thoughtful and efficient scheduling options.

  • Have you ever been in a temporary dental crown for several weeks or months? We understand! As technology changes, we are excited to offer patients faster and more convenient scheduling with our brand new state-of-the art in-office dental lab. This way you may get your restoration same day or many times within just a few days.  Even implant-dentistry lab time may be significantly reduced! 

  • Have your teeth shifted and you considered orthodontic treatment, but wanted to know if faster and more convenient options are currently available using the latest scanning technology (with less dental appointments and overall time)?

  • Have you received whitening treatment where you barely noticed a difference or have to wait days or weeks to see results?  We offer all kinds of whitening options, (for different budgets) where you can choose to select easy fast immediate noticeable whitening results, and help you maintain it!
