When we watch patients’ reactions when smile makeover or dental implant treatments are complete, the moments are always wonderful! Their words are often, “This is the best investment I’ve ever made,” or “I only wish I’d done this years ago!”
Having a healthy, beautiful smile is a complement to every life. Research shows that good oral health supports good overall health. And, a confident smile tends to be shared more often. Having an attractive smile not only improves overall facial appearance, it enhances self-confidence and self-esteem.
However, my team and I are also aware that receiving quality dental care, for any treatment, can strain some budgets. Although our fees are very competitive, we want every patient to be able to enjoy exceptional dentistry through a financial package that fits their budget. This is why several payment options are available.
For some people, applying their treatment fee to a credit card provides the ability to make payments in selected amounts that work on a month-to-month basis. For others, they prefer to spread payments out in set amounts over a longer period of time (for 18 or 24 months, for example). If a credit card is your preference, we accept all major cards including Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express.
For those who wish to spread payments out longer and avoid interest, we also offer two easy payment plans. These allow you to achieve your smile goals without delay while paying affordable monthly amounts that are manageable to most budgets.
The two options below do not require down payments and both have interest-free terms. For both, our Financial Coordinator is happy to discuss these in greater detail and assist you with the application process. Keep in mind you can get an estimate on the monthly amount before committing to anything!
The CareCredit® card is exclusively for healthcare and dental services. You’ll get low monthly payments for dental procedures, including follow-up appointments. For most treatments, no down payment is needed and there is no interest charged if paid by the agreed terms. This can also finance treatment for up to 24 months, if you wish. Learn more by contacting our office or applying online at CareCredit. You can also ask our Financial Coordinator, Deb, to assist you by calling 586-739-2155.
Another flexible payment plan is available through Lending Club Patient Solutions. Lending Club offers similar arrangements as CareCredit with low monthly payments and no down payment (for most arrangements). You can even calculate your potential monthly payment by completing a brief application which shows fixed rates and monthly payments available for Extended Plans, all without impacting your credit score. For more information, ask our Financial Coordinator, Deb, to assist you or go to: lendingclub.com/patients.
We encourage patients to consider these options rather than delay or bypass the dentistry they need. Unfortunately, very few of us were born with beautiful, worry-free smiles. Over the years, most adults experience breakdown of teeth, loss of teeth, or teeth that tilt out of their proper positions. What needs repair or enhancement in your mouth will never improve on its own. Often, early treatment can help you avoid more-extensive needs in the future.
