Is it time for your six-month checkup? Are you struggling with a painful toothache? Do you wish you could blast away stubborn stains? If you don’t have dental insurance, you may be convinced that taking care of your teeth is “too expensive.” In reality, there are multiple other payment options that make the top-tier dentistry you deserve more affordable. Keep reading to learn what they are!

CareCredit®: An Affordable Alternative to Traditional Dental Insurance

If this is the first time you’ve heard of CareCredit, you may be wondering how exactly it works. In short, it is a third-party financier that allows you to space out the cost of your treatment plan into manageable monthly chunks. As a result, those on a fixed budget can affordably get the preventive, restorative, and even cosmetic dentistry they desire. The best part? Certain payment plans come with ZERO interest attached.

A Few Additional Ways to Make Dental Care More Affordable

CareCredit is a trusted and versatile third-party lender, so it’s not hard to see why it’s so appealing to some patients. However, if for any reason you’d like to go a different route, there are two other ways to make the cost of your dental care more affordable:

  • In-House Savings Plans – In an attempt to make preventive and restorative dentistry more affordable for their patients, many dental practices have begun offering an in-house savings plan. For one annual fee, you can enjoy perks like complimentary checkups and cleanings, X-rays, consultations, and more. Plus, a significant discount on other important services!
  • Special Offers – Many dental practices extend periodic special offers to allow patients to experience what they are all about. Most often, this is a discounted (or FREE) new patient special. However, it’s worth asking in case there is a special offer for a specific service you’re interested in.

How Your Dental Team Can Help

As a patient, it can be difficult to keep track of how dental insurance, flexible financing, and memberships work. That’s okay! After all, your dentist and their team handle financial options like this every day, so they are extremely knowledgeable. So, if you’re unsure of the best approach, don’t hesitate to ask. Remember, they want to help you get the world-class dentistry you deserve, and they are there to ensure you get it.
