No one likes an unexpected bill in the mail for dental expenses. For this reason, it is our policy to inform our patients of their financial responsibilities up front. First, you will have a consultation with one of our doctors. This appointment allows us an opportunity to examine your teeth and ascertain your dental needs. You will then receive a diagnosis, a recommended treatment plan, and a written estimate for the cost of our services.
Understanding Your Estimate
After you receive your estimate, our helpful staff would be happy to review it with you, along with the estimated cost of your treatment. Occasionally, we will have to modify your treatment plan to ensure that your dental health needs are better met. If this happens, we will notify you as soon as possible and give you options for payment, as well as modifying your treatment.
Here are some of the payment options Gentle Dentistry offers:
We want to help you maximize your insurance benefits whenever possible. To that end, our helpful staff would be happy to help you determine the extent of your benefits and assist you in filling out your insurance forms. Please be aware that this is only an estimate, and is typically based upon the information available to us at the time of your appointment. Your actual range of benefits is dictated by your employer and your insurance company.
In limited instances, dental insurance plans will cover part of a dental implant procedure. In our experience, they do not normally cover the entire procedure cost. As such, patients considering this solution should expect to pay a large portion of the procedure out of pocket. Fortunately, there are many great financing options available for patients who do not have money to pay for their procedure up front.
Many dentists offer their own financing plans, or work with third-party financing companies. These plans offer low-interest payment options that can phase your repayment in affordable monthly increments.
CARECREDIT® is a credit card that offers multiple interest-free and extended payment options to pay for medical or dental treatment fees up to $25,000. CareCredit accounts work much like a credit card with various interest options and payment plans. Once approved, your account can be used for multiple family members, procedures, and even pets. There is no penalty for paying off your balance early.
The qualification process is simple and can be done online from home. For more information on CareCredit, you can call our office or visit their website at www.carecredit.com. If you would like, we can help you apply for CareCredit right here in our office.
Other Payment Options
As experts in the dental field, we understand that there are many ways to reach a desired treatment outcome. We also believe that you should have many ways to pay for your dental treatment. We accept all major credit cards and cash. We understand that most families have a budget and want to help you fit your dental procedures into that budget as much as possible. If you wish to discuss alternative payment options, this must be done prior to scheduling any treatment.
Why Invest in Dental Implants?
