Our Payment Options
Many patients worry about paying for dental care, but fortunately at Brighter Smile Family Dentistry, we offer a variety of payment options. Our mission is to make you feel comfortable throughout your visit and this goal includes paying for our dentist’s services. don’t hesitate to ask us questions about any of these options.
Cash and Personal Checks
Paying with cash is one of the most common and reliable ways to cover dental care costs. Since cash payments can be faster and more convenient, many of our patients opt for this method.
We also accept personal checks at our dental office. Our staff is happy to provide you with any information you may need to complete the check accurately.
Credit cards are another common approved method of payment at our office. For a complete list of accepted types or to verify your card, contact our team directly.
There are various dental insurance plans today and many of the plans fully cover or partially cover your basic dental work including teeth cleanings, fillings, check-ups and even necessary dental surgery.
However, it is important that you verify if we are an accepted provider of your dental insurance company.
Since dental plans can vary in terms of services covered and accepted providers, it is important you speak to your insurer to understand your plan’s coverage and prepare before your visit with us. Keep in mind that if your dental insurance only covers part of your services, you will have a balance remaining for which you can pay through our other available payment options. If you are paying your dental services through your insurance, please make sure to bring your insurance card and a form of ID the day of your visit.
Our office accepts CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that is used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by dental insurance. CareCredit is subject to credit approval, but once you are accepted, you can use it again and again. CareCredit is a great option if you’re on a budget, in that you can pay for your dental expenses in installments. Ask us about CareCredit today! Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions.
