Affordable Dental Payment Options

If your goal is to achieve long-term dental health, seeing a dentist regularly is key. Unfortunately, many people delay or completely avoid dental care because they cannot locate an affordable dentist. At our office, we believe that everyone should receive affordable quality dental care regardless of income or budget. We provide a full range of dental services in a welcoming environment, offering several payment and discount options to meet your needs. Our office accepts most insurance providers; however, we can also find financial solutions for those without dental insurance. If you’re ready to achieve better dental health, call us now to learn more about our affordable dental services.

Flexible Financing Arrangements

Receiving an unanticipated dental bill can sometimes place a strain on your finances. When faced with this dilemma, you might wonder, “How can I see a high-quality dentist near me that takes payments?” At our practice, we understand that financial circumstances sometimes make patients unable to pay the full cost of treatment at the time of service. Our dental payment plans can help you manage the cost by splitting your balance among several monthly payments. Typically, dental repayment plans can be used to cover the remaining balance not covered by insurance; however, they’re also an excellent choice for those without insurance. Get the care you need from an experienced dentist with payment plans – call us now to get started. Continue reading

Affordable dental plans from DentRite offer up to 70 percent off savings on cleanings, exams, and imagery services.

Our practice is in-network with most providers, allowing you to receive maximum benefits from your inexpensive dental insurance policy. Please bring any insurance paperwork you have, and one of our team members will help you review your plan’s terms and requirements. Our team members can help take the guesswork out of the claims process, filing claims on your behalf. Call us now if you have questions about affordable dental insurance or your payment choices.
