Financing & Insurance

Today, many people are aware that finding a dentist who cares for your whole body health is important. Like many others, if you are looking for a holistic approach you will have to search for an out-of-network provider.

In order to focus on quality, safety, and low patient volume individualized care, our office has chosen not to be a contracted provider with any insurance providers.

Out-of -network does not mean “no insurances accepted”. We accept all PPO dental insurance policies with out-of-network benefits. Though we are out-of-network, as a courtesy we will always process your claims in the office (you will never be asked to file your own claims!).

Care Credit
We will work with your insurance company to supply any additional information that may be needed for your claim to be processed. If you have dual insurance coverage, we are able to coordinate benefits between the two policies.

Please keep in mind insurance coverage is a contract between you and your insurance company and that we are offering claim billing as a courtesy. If you have any questions regarding your out-of-network insurance, please contact your insurance company for further details.

If you have Delta Dental, we do require that payment is made in full at the time of service. Delta Dental will send payment directly to the policyholder after the claim has been processed.

Out-Of-State Patients

Many of our patients travel long distances to get the kind of comprehensive biological dental care Dr. Grabiak and the Dentistry team provide. We are happy to work with you on scheduling your appointments in such a way to maximize your time with us. Our staff is dedicated to making the process especially positive for our out-of-town patients, and we will work with you every step of the way to ensure your dental experience is successful and convenient.

For those who are unable to travel to Denver for an in-office consultation, we welcome you to contact our office to schedule a virtual consultation with Dr. Grabiak. Our team will work with you prior to your virtual meeting with Dr. Grabiak to collect some vital information from you to make the most of your consultation time. Dr. Grabiak will review all of the information you provide to our office prior to your virtual consultation and be ready to discuss with you your concerns, options, and recommendations, and timeline.

Once you’ve scheduled your dental treatment, you will need to make travel arrangements. During your consultation, Dr. Grabiak will discuss the timeline for the dental treatment and your specific needs. We recommend that you travel with a friend or loved one, particularly if your dental treatment requires sedation. You will need transportation back to your hotel, in addition to a bit of extra care the first evening while the effects of the sedation wear off. We will provide you with detailed instructions for your procedure when you are discharged.

If you are flying, the closest major airport to our office is the Denver International Airport, located just a 45-minute car ride away. As one of the largest airports in the United States, the Denver

International Airport is a hub to most major national and international airlines—and, depending where you live, you will likely be able to find a non-stop flight to help keep things easy and convenient.

There are numerous ground transportation options available at Denver International Airport. The Ground Transportation Information Counter is located in the central area on Level 5 of Jeppesen Terminal. Counter hours are 6:00 a.m. to 11:30 p.m. daily. Denver International Airport has multiple car rental companies able to serve you right from the airport.

The foundation of providing safe and personalized holistic care begins by getting to know you and your goals for your oral health and overall health, both short term and long term. Dr. Grabiak will then learn about your family’s dental and medical history, along with your dental and medical history. Afterwards, we begin your exam by taking a sample of your saliva (Sillha), checking for seven different biomarkers. That same day, we will send you home with a report showing how you scored in those different biomarker categories.

The head and neck examination is often overlooked by busy clinicians but it is as crucial as an element of the oral cancer examination. Dr. Grabiak begins his exam outside of the mouth by starting with a soft tissue check of the neck and the jaw. A thorough head and neck examination is essential for detecting early skin cancers, any overdeveloped jaw muscles that may be contributing towards bruxism, and enlarged lymph nodes that may indicate an active virus or infection.

After the extraoral exam, Dr. Grabiak begins his extensive intraoral exam. During Dr. Grabiak’s exam he is evaluating the teeth, uvula, mucosal tissues, tongue, floor of the mouth, hard and soft palate, and the oropharynx. Part of this exam includes taking high-definition photos of the mouth, all at different angles so you can see exactly what he is seeing. Our hygienist will then come in and complete a comprehensive periodontal assessment. In some cases, Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist may recommend additional testing to get to the root cause of the evidence of symptoms they are seeing in your mouth. This entire process takes roughly an hour. In some cases, depending on what Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist had found during their exam we will invite you back for a follow-up appointment called review of findings.

In preparation for the review of findings, Dr. Grabiak and your hygienist will take the time to evaluate all of the data that was collected from your examination and testing to determine your specific needs. At your review of findings appointment Dr. Grabiak will sit down with you one on one to review the data that was collected from your appointment, along with any recommendations. This allows you the time to ask Dr. Grabiak any questions that you may have about your treatment recommendations and expectations from treatment.
