Our Payment Methods
Many individuals hold on to the belief that dental treatments are very expensive. This keeps many from seeking dental treatment. Our office in Springdale, Arkansas, will guide you through the various payment options available.
Our clients can choose from a range of payment methods for our dental services. The preference of many service users is cash payment; although, some customers also pay with credit cards. Many dental procedures are also covered under dental insurance plans.
Different payment methods are available at Sunset Avenue Dental in Springdale, Arkansas, and listed below are some brief details of the alternative methods available.
Approximately 42% of all dentistry payments are made in cash and direct payments. Many patients find it convenient to pay in cash. It is also common for patients to pay for half of their treatment in cash and have the remaining portion covered through their insurance provider. This should be approved by the insurance provider before beginning your procedure.
Paying with personal checks has become an outdated method of payment, and not many service providers accept personal checks anymore. It is recommended that you verify if a dental office accepts this form of payment before the appointment.
Some people assume that paying with a check is a long process, but in reality, it is not. Should you need to use a personal check or make a bank transfer, our office will be happy to provide you with all the necessary details needed. These may include the receiver’s name, account number, etc.
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.
Insurance and Payment Choices
We offer different payment options for you.
You should also remember 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.
It is important that you verify with your insurance if we are an accepted provider to use through your dental insurance. Since dental plans can vary in terms of services covered and accepted providers, it is important for you talk to your insurance to understand your plan 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 payment options available. 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.Read more about Insurance and Payment Choices
