Financing and Payment Options

Good oral health is an important part of your overall health and well-being. We understand that the ability to pay is an important consideration in getting the dental care you need and deserve.

We are committed to providing the best possible care at an affordable fee. This section provides details on our payment options, insurance policies, and how we can work together to optimize your dental benefits.


We are an insurance-friendly office and accept most PPO dental benefit plans.

If you have dental benefits, let us contact your dental insurance provider on your behalf and verify your coverage at LOBO DDS.

As a LOBO patient, you won’t need to worry about insurance claims. We file claims for you and directly handle insurance-covered payments.

After reviewing your treatment options, you may request to have an estimate of your payment portion. Any unpaid balance not covered by your insurance will be your responsibility and due within 30 days.


We offer 10% off all treatments over $500 that is paid in full with cash or check at the time of service. This offer is valid for patients who do not have coverage through a contracted dental benefit plan.

We also offer a 10% senior discount with cash or check. All patient payments are due at the time of service.

For any procedures (i.e. crowns, bridges, implant crowns and dentures) that require multiple appointments and/or significant laboratory work, we offer the option of paying a 50% deposit for the patient's portion when treatment is initiated, with payment of the remaining balance due upon completion of treatment.

We offer an interest-free, no deposit, and no annual fee payment plan option with CareCredit. You are responsible for making the minimum monthly payments and paying the balance in full by the indicated date to avoid the contracted finance charges. Please visit the CareCredit website for more information or to apply online.

We also accept most major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover as well as cash, personal check, or bank card.

Why Patients Recommend Our Dental Office in Torrance, CA

The LOBO DDS team are ready for your new patient experience

We bring the “family” back into family dentistry.

Every time you visit our dental office, you will be welcomed by the same, familiar faces who are ready to make your dental experience a positive one. Simply put, we just want you and your family to have the healthy and beautiful smiles you all deserve.  

Our Torrance dentist offers honest recommendations by visually showing you what is going on with your smile and why you should pursue treatment. Our treatments focus on enhancing the natural beauty of your smile with conservative, modern methods.

However, the final decision is always up to you. We want you and your family to feel comfortable and relaxed at our dental office, which includes making your own decisions. Here are a few reasons why new patients choose us:


A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.

We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health. Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.


Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.

We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience. Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.


Infection control in our office is also very important to us so we can protect our patients and ourselves.

We strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).


As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians. We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.

To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning. We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.

Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.


As a practice, we are true believers that preventative care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.

We strive to provide “dental healthcare” vs. “disease care.” That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary. We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.

Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, but we’re also concerned about your health. A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.
