In today’s economy, it’s not rare to hear of individuals who have not had a dental check-up or cleaning in years due to finances. The unfortunate results are often large problems that could have been easily repaired (or avoided) through regular dental visits.
We occasionally receive calls from people who are at a stage where they can no longer postpone dental care. It’s usually when something hurts and the individual realizes the discomfort is not going to go away and will become worse. We also speak to adults who need to have teeth replaced, orthodontics (teeth straightening) or even cosmetic dentistry to help self-confidence and self-esteem.
Some adults who’ve postponed care want to begin with a cleaning. Here’s the glitch: Avoidance of regular check-ups and plaque removal often results in the beginning stages of periodontal (gum) disease. A dental cleaning is not structured to treat gum disease. Many stages require several appointments to thoroughly rid your mouth of this bacterial infection, which will worsen without treatment.
We are sensitive to the financial constraints many families are under today. This is why we’ve added two payment plans to our array of financing options. Both CareCredit and Lending Club Patient Solutions will finance most dental treatments with no down payment required. There are no-interest options as well as those with very low interest rates. There are no prepayment penalties and monthly payments can be paced at practical durations for your needs.
We also accept all major credit cards and offer a prepayment discount for many treatments. For those who wish to combine dental insurance with fees not covered, our Deb is your best resource. For over 16 years as our Financial Coordinator, Deb is a wiz at helping patients blend dental care fees into various budgets. Her goal is to help you accomplish your best smile at a level that is affordable and practical.
As I’ve mentioned a number of times, whenever there is a problem in your mouth, you can expect it to worsen without care. Cavities don’t go away. Gum disease won’t stop or get better. Don’t allow delayed dentistry to cost you MORE in treatment time and expense. Call toll free 1-866-9-Smiles to arrange a free consultation and we’ll bring Deb into the conversation to discuss our many payment options.
