Office Policies

Orthodontic Treatment in Newport Beach, CA

At Hersch Pediatric Dentistry, we strive to help each of our patients achieve a smile they truly feel proud to show off. As a leading pediatric dental and orthodontic practice serving the Newport Beach and greater Orange County, CA area, we proudly offer a range of treatments including teeth cleanings, sedation dentistry, and kids braces, and we work hard to make treatment as convenient as possible for our patients. To ensure we provide the utmost quality of care to each of our patients, we've instituted a number of office policies that help us carry out our work.


We know your time is valuable, which is why we strive to make appointments at our office focused and efficient. But as a part of that commitment, we reserve your appointment time specifically for you – so if you ever need to change or cancel an appointment, we kindly request 48 hours notice. Unfortunately, if you miss an appointment without giving 48 hours notice, we might charge a $50 per appointment fee. 

That said, we understand accidents happen. Sometimes, life just gets in the way! While we can't "jam" you into the schedule in fairness to our other patients, you're more than welcome to wait in our office for an opening in the schedule. However, in some cases, it may be easier to simply reschedule your appointment. If you'd like to schedule a visit to our office, simply use our online form to do so:

At our practice, we believe nothing should stand between you and your dream smile – finances least of all. That's why we're proud to accept any insurance that allows you to choose your dentist.  We are also in-network with Delta Dental Premier and Anthem Blue Cross.

That said, insurance policies vary greatly, so only your insurer can tell you much coverage you have. We're more than happy to make a good faith estimate of your coverage, but we can't guarantee that amount – only your insurance company can say for sure. 

Regardless of your insurance, your patient portion is due at the time of service. To make treatment more convenient for you, we're happy to bill your insurance company electronically with 30-day payment terms. However, ultimately you are still responsible for the entire balance of your treatment if your insurance company fails to pay or delays payment. 

We're happy to work with you to help you understand your coverage, but if you have specific questions about the details of your policy, we encourage you to contact your insurance provider directly.
