Though she has been practicing for over 20 years, dentistry is still a passion more than a business.  Besides making sure her patients enjoy the finest dentistry, she shares her expertise with dental students, the school systems, and a variety of community organizations.  She is a former board member for the University of Nebraska College of Dentistry Dean’s Advisory Board.  Currently, she is a Preceptor for UNMC College of Dentistry Senior General Practice Program and a volunteer lecturer on dental education for area schools and preschools.  It is her goal to keep your smile as beautiful as it is healthy. 


Insurance, Billing & Financing


We welcome dental insurance; however, we are not in network or “providers” for most insurance companies. 

We are “providers” for the following insurance plans:

  • Aetna Dental Access & Aetna Dental Administrators

  • Delta Dental Premier Provider

It is our courtesy service to you to submit all claims within 24 hours, with the necessary documentation and correct coding.  Most insurance companies will pay us directly.  We offer flexible payment arrangements for the remaining balance.  If you would like to know how much your insurance will cover before services are performed, we would be happy to submit a pre-treatment estimate on your behalf.  Our goal is to assist you in maximizing your dental coverage.  We will work with you to understand your policy exclusions, deductibles, and required co-payments.  Our office is proud to offer the quality of care we provide at such reasonable costs.

Billing and Financing Options

Clay Center Dental Clinic accepts several forms of payment:

Cash, Check, Debit Cards, MasterCard, Visa, Discover & American Express.

In the event you are not able to afford all of your treatment in one payment, we are pleased to offer you the following payment options:

  • Third Party Financing:  Lending Club and Care Credit are here to help you pay for treatments and procedures your insurance doesn’t cover. They offer No Interest and/or Low Interest financing with low minimum monthly payment options so you can get what you want, when you want it. You can even use Lending Club & Care Credit for other family members.  For more information or to apply online, please visit their website by clicking on the icon below.
