Following the doctor’s examination, we will provide you with an estimate of fees. All professional fees are due at the time services are rendered, with a partial payment required to begin diagnostics, surgery, and/or treatment. We accept cash, check (with appropriate identification and check approval), major credit cards; or we can help you establish a payment arrangement if approved by Wells Fargo Health Advantage, or CareCredit, in advance of treatment. There will be a service charge for any check returned unpaid. We urge you to discuss all fees with the doctor before services are performed.
The GCVS Dentistry and Oral Surgery (D&OS) is part of a teaching program that utilizes staff doctors in different periods of their training program. The staff doctor involved in the care of your pet may be a rotating intern or a resident or both. It is very likely that you will encounter a discussion, a full consultation, or SUPERVISED surgical procedures on your pet by the GCVS D&OS resident, Dr. Melissa Blazevich. It is the goal of this teaching program to provide the most excellent care for your pet while simultaneously providing superior training for future specialists in the dentistry and oral surgery field. Dr. Blazevich is under the direct supervision of Dr. Chanda Miles, the attending specialist in the service. Dr. Blazevich will always be in direct communication with Dr. Miles regarding the care of your pet. Please understand that teaching programs must be in place in order to expand the field and future care of pets.
