We elaborate and educate patients on Care Credit and have brochures in the office. Some Care Credit lines will waive the interest fee if you are able to pay off the full sum of your dental work within 6 to 12 months of your procedure. You can compare different Care Credit line offers online, or call your dentist for more information. Opening up a line of care credit through your dentist allows you to pay for services in manageable installments. You could also pay for outstanding work with a credit card issued through your financial institution.
If you’re fortunate enough to receive insurance coverage through your employer, you might not have to pay as much from out-of-pocket for your dental work. You can also opt for coverage from a dental insurance provider who is contracted with your local dentist, i.e. Delta Premier Insurance, to receive many budget-friendly benefits.
Some dentists are flexible and will accept PPO insurance to help you cover the cost of care. With a PPO dental plan, you have the liberty of gaining out-of-network dental benefits. Your benefits will vary depending on your plan, so it’s important to call your dentist ahead of time to make sure they will accept your PPO benefits.
FSA (Flexible Spending Account) and HSA (Health Savings Account) accounts are accounts that some employers allow employees to contribute funds on a pre-tax basis. These pre-tax funds can be used for eligible medical and dental expenses.
