And although people save money to cover medical expenses, they often forget to include dental services. Financing your dental care will provide you with the services that you need and reduce the stress of covering the expense all at one time.
Why Consider Dental Financing?
Patients will often take care of what is necessary, but we find that if their budget is tight, they will put off getting the care that they may need due to lack of finances. This can have repercussions. So many times we think of dental problems as minor or “no big deal”, but the reality is that your dental health plays a large part on your overall health, as we mentioned in previous blog posts.
What Does the Financing Cover?
This strictly depends upon the financing company, but an example would be CareCredit, which is used by the office of Dr. Baxley. CareCredit covers both general and cosmetic dental services that exceed $200.00. This can include your 6-month checkup & tooth repair or cosmetic services like whitening or veneers. And with over 100,000 dental teams accepting CareCredit, you’ll be able to apply for credit conveniently.
The Best Tip
If you have a dentist, consult with the office staff and ask if they are setup with financing options. Also, look into the potential financing company and make sure you understand the terms and conditions. Always ask questions if you are not sure. Our goal is to see that you get the dental care that you need and to protect your overall health.
