Dental Financing Options at Atglen Family Dentistry
The cost of dental care is a major reason people avoid going to the dentist, especially if they have limited or no dental coverage. At Atglen Family Dentistry, we are pleased to offer numerous savings options for our patients. We firmly believe everyone should have access to excellent dental care, regardless of coverage or income.
Read on for an overview of our dental financing options. Note that each option has exclusions that may apply to you. For more information on our financing options at Atglen Family Dentistry or to determine if you qualify for financial assistance, give us a call today at 610-593-2818.
Our Savings Plans
We are happy to announce that some patients will qualify for our Atglen Family Dentistry 15/15 savings plan. In short, this plan allows patients to pay $15 each year and receive 10%-15% off certain procedures. These procedures and cost savings include:
- 15% off exams, cleanings, X-rays, fillings, root canals, and more
- 10% off any procedure requiring lab work, such as dentures, bridges, implants, and crowns
Who Qualifies for the 15/15 Savings Plan?
Patients must meet the following criteria to qualify for the Atglen Family Dentistry 15/15 savings plan.
- Patients must possess minimal or no dental coverage.
- Patients must have paid their existing Atglen Family Dentistry balances in full.
Note that patients are automatically disqualified from the 15/15 payment plan if:
- They have a senior citizen discount
- They have dental insurance
- They have a CareCredit card
The 15/15 savings plan kicks in upon receipt of payment and lasts for one year from your registration date.
Senior Dental Discount Program
We offer a senior dental discount program for patients ages 55 or older. However, these patients must not qualify for private insurance plans to receive our senior discount.
We proudly accept the CareCredit healthcare credit card. This card allows you to pay off your balance in installments over time. Visit www.carecredit.com to learn more about this dental financing option.
You can use CareCredit to pay for out-of-pocket expenses even if you have dental insurance. However, note that CareCredit may charge a high interest rate, depending on your balance.
A dental loan might be your best option if you’re facing extensive dental work. We recommend discussing a dental loan with your bank. If your bank does not offer one, research banks that provide personal dental loans.
Know that you may have to pay a steep interest rate depending on the loan amount. Therefore, you’ll want to carefully go over the loan terms to determine whether a loan will genuinely help you save money. Moreover, some banks offer loans to those with average to low credit.
Debt consolidation may be another attractive option for you if you have a lot of existing debt. Debt consolidation enables you to secure a loan that pays all your debt. Again, we recommend discussing such an option with your bank.
Remember, you can’t put a price tag on good-quality dental care. Reach out to our Atglen Family Dentistry team at 610-593-2818 to learn more about the best dental financing options for you.
