Is Dr. Gagliardo a provider for my insurance?
Our office works with and accepts payments from most insurance plans. Whether we are “in-network” often makes little or no cost difference to our patients. Our goal is to provide you with the best quality care at a cost that works for you. The staff at our front desk can assist you with understanding your coverage.


How can I pay for my dental care if I don’t have insurance or the insurance doesn’t pay the total bill?
Patients who pay at the time of service by cash or check receive a 5% discount. We accept Visa and MasterCard, and CareCredit financing is also available.


What if I have a dental emergency after office hours?
Call our office at 563.449.9055 and an emergency number will be listed on the voicemail. Calls or texts are responded to in a prompt manner and an assessment of your situation can begin right away.
