The team at Oshkosh Smiles Family Dental realizes unforeseen circumstances arise that can make it difficult to pay for dental treatments. This video outlines your dental payment options.
“What payment options do you have for your office?”
At Oshkosh Smiles, we value our patients and understand that unforeseen circumstances can happen in your lives. That’s why we are willing to work with our patients when it comes to payment and financial arrangements.
Most dental offices require payment in full the same day as your services. Here at Oshkosh Smiles, we allow patients to pay their balance within 3 months without penalty. We also understand that this may not be a long enough payment period for some patients, which is why we also accept care credit at our office.
“What is CareCredit?”
CareCredit is different from a regular credit card. CareCredit is a zero-interest healthcare credit card specifically used towards your wellness. A lot of people are “scared” by the term credit card. However, CareCredit only pulls what is considered a “soft” credit score and has little to no effect on your score. It would be similar to you opening up a new checking account at a bank.
Not only is it a zero percent interest option, but it gives you a longer period of time to pay than a regular credit card does. Here at our office, we can give patients 6,12 or 18 months to pay their full balance over 200 dollars without any interest charges.
“Benefits of CareCredit”
Not only can you use your care credit card at our Dental office, but you can use it at many other businesses as well. Some examples are the pharmacist, dermatologist, vet, chiropractor, eye doctor, specialists, and cosmetic surgery. Best of all, you can use it for every member of your family.
We appreciate our patients and that is why we want you to be informed of all of your options when it comes to your dental care. CareCredit is a great option for many of the patients we treat.
