Financing for Dental Care

We are happy to bill your insurance, and can offer up to three months to pay with no interest on approved credit. We offer up to a year to pay with no interest through CareCredit, on approved credit. We also offer cash discounts, and senior discounts.

CareCredit Financing for Dental Care

CareCredit works like a credit card, where you can open an account with a set limit, then charge for dental services as often as you like.  We offer several CareCredit plans, including options for

  • no interest on amounts from $200 and up for 6 or 12 months,

  • fixed interest for 24 to 48 months for amounts from $1000 and up,

  • fixed interest for 60 months for amounts from $2500 and up.

Sometimes a patient has major dental needs, and feels overwhelmed.  We like to help by performing a comprehensive exam, followed by a consultation where we create a personalized roadmap to optimal dental health.  We set milestones, with goals that are attainable within your budget over a reasonable period of time.  Typical milestones for complex cases include:

  1. Address emergent needs, like infections, toothaches and urgent cosmetic problems.  (For example, a broken front tooth and you are posing for pictures soon.)

  2. Complete any necessary x-rays and a  comprehensive exam.

  3. Complete consultation, resulting in a "roadmap" treatment plan that meets your needs.

  4. Stop active disease, like decay or gum disease, so you do not lose ground to ongoing disease.

  5. Restore form, function, and appearance of your dentition

It is important to adopt a comprehensive plan, where you do not have to waste time or money on care that does not meet your ultimate goal.

We also help patients to optimize insurance benefits.  It is not uncommon to complete a phase of care in one insurance year, then complete one or more additional phases in additional insurance years.
