Payment Options

A patient checking out after her cleaning is complete

Both of our dental offices, in Tampa and in Wesley Chapel, offer a multitude of dental plans. We update our list regularly so if you do not see your insurance plan, please call us, our staff can look up your insurance information to make sure you’re covered before your first visit.

We strive to come as close to your insurance coverage as possible. We teach you, work with you, and walk with you at each step of your dental treatment to make sure you receive the best possible dental care.

We accept checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express


We work with all dental plans that allow the patient to choose their own dentist.

* For orthodontic treatments, Dr. Ahren’s is a provider with most dental insurance plans. Please call our office for answers to any of your insurance questions.
