How It Works

Dental treatment is an excellent investment in your overall health and quality of life. There are very few things you spend money on that you use as much as your teeth. We offer very convenient financing to meet the individual needs of our patients. We are also happy to assist in preparing a treatment cost estimate for any third party financing, not just those listed below. There is no cost to apply and no obligation to use approved credit or annual fees. We encourage new families to apply for financing before their first visit so that they can get the best use out of interest free financing or other helpful loan programs.

CareCredit

This service offers the convenience of a credit card (for health care purchases) with the added benefit of 3-12 month, interest free financing. CareCredit® also offers a 60 month, low interest loans for treatment plans over $1,000. This is our most flexible and convenient financing option. You can apply in our office or apply online with our CareCredit Online Application or call (800) 365-8295. For more information about this program, go to CareCredit.com.

No down payments & deferred interest. CareCredit® is only available for patients with healthy credit. Spread out your payments to six months or a year.

Prepayment Discount

We offer a 7% discount for full advanced payment of your entire treatment plan with cash or check. This gives our patients an immediate 7% return on their investment in dental health. Additional savings are often tremendous because aggressively treating problems now can save a lot of money later. Unfortunately, we are not able to offer this option for credit card and dental insurance transactions.

Cash Discount

We offer a 5% cash discount for payment in full with cash, check or money order, at time of service, for non-credit card transactions. This discount is not available if dental insurance is billed for services.

Major Credit Cards

Visa, MasterCard and Discover.
