We want all of our patients to get the dental care they need. That’s why we have several financing and payment options to help make your care fit your budget. From health care financing and our dental membership plan to maximize your insurance benefits, learn how we can make it easy to get the treatments you need.
We Start with Your Personalize Treatment Plan
We want to be upfront with dental costs prior to treatment which is why we always start with an accurate treatment plan. Your input is very important during the treatment planning process. There are usually multiple different ways to treat the same dental problem, and we’ll discuss each option with you so you’ll be able to make an informed decision about your oral health care.
We like to think of the treatment plan as something we are working towards together rather than a “to-do” list for the dentist. An effective and accurate treatment plan is the best way for us to estimate your out-of-pocket cost and/or insurance benefits.

Frequently Asked Questions
CareCredit is conveniently accepted at over 200,000 healthcare providers nationwide. You can use it to help pay for various types of treatment such as dermatology and cosmetic procedures, LASIK, and veterinary expenses. It works just like a credit card.
After you’re approved, you can begin using CareCredit right away. In some cases, you can even choose an interest-free financing plan. Make sure you stay up to date with your payments to avoid penalty charges. You can also use CareCredit to help pay for deductibles or expenses that aren’t covered by insurance.
CareCredit reports that people with a score of 623 or higher are more likely to be approved. Some patients have been approved with a credit score as low as 600. If you’re interested in applying for CareCredit, you can call (800) 677-0718 or visit their website.
At first, you’ll see a dip in your credit score, as you would with any hard inquiry on your credit report. However, it should drop off within a year or so. If you keep up with your scheduled payments, you can actually build your credit with CareCredit.
If you don’t have dental insurance, our practice offers a Dental Perks Membership Program. After paying a one-time membership fee, you’ll receive discounts on all the treatments we offer, with the exception of orthodontics.
If you’re interested in learning more about the Dental Perks Membership Program, contact our office by calling (715) 646-2161 and one of our knowledgeable team members will be happy to help you.
