Oral Arts pays the cost of shipping your cases both ways! While many labs have instituted shipping charges at least one way we believe that getting your cases to and from the laboratory still remains our responsibility. You have several convenient options when shipping your cases. Choose from our local courier service in areas where applicable, FedEx, or UPS. We will provide you with complimentary airbills, packing materials, and boxes. This policy does not apply to overnight deliveries, weekend pickups, or insurance coverage. In these situations, which, are at doctor’s request, or for accounts outside the Continental U.S., Oral Arts will bill your account for any additional shipping charges that were incurred. For your free shipping kit, within Continental US, please call our marketing department toll-free at 1-800-354-2075.
Oral Arts offers you the convenience of a monthly open account on all of your casework. Invoices are sent with cases and statements are mailed on the last business day of the month. The statement balance is due and payable by the fifteenth of the following. A service charge of 1.5% per month (annual rate of 18%) will be applied to any unpaid balance. Any costs associated with collecting an unpaid balance, including legal fees, will be charged to the customer. Accounts with outstanding balances of over 45 days will be converted to a C.O.D. basis.
