Dental Services Payment Options
At Smiles on Northern 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.
You may feel a little uneasy when going to a dental office for the first time, especially when it comes to paying for the services. This is why our team at Smiles on Northern offers various payment options so that you can choose the one you prefer. For your convenience, we have listed the following payment options for you to review.
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.
Today, many people prefer paying with their credit cards rather than any other payment method. Thousands of credit card transactions are made each minute around the world, with their uses range from paying for clothes, airfare to medical procedures.
Credit cards are found to be convenient and safer to carry around.
Several credit card companies offer many attractive benefits on transactions. Paying for dental services through credit cards not only fixes your dental hygiene, but can also help improve your credit. The two most common dental treatments that are paid for with credit cards are cosmetic treatments and surgeries such as extractions.
We accept the majority of credit cards to provide maximum convenience to our patients.
Paying with personal checks has become an outdated method of payment and not many service providers accept personal checks anymore.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.
Medical insurance is definitely an important tool for effectively managing your budget. Insurance companies cover many of your health expenses, saving you from paying out of your pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist patients, our office in Glendale, Arizona also processes treatment compensations through dental insurance.
Since this payment method has certain requirements, it is recommended that patients contact their dental insurance providers prior to beginning any treatment.
It is important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active Many polices enter into effect after several months of your application approval. You are also advised to confirm that the treatment you will be receiving is covered by your insurance company.
In addition to clarifying coverage with your dental insurance provider, it is also recommended that you confirm with our office that we accept your insurance provider’s coverage. Some insurance agencies are not registered with us.
In some cases, your insurance may allow you to pay in cash, and then offer a reimbursement after the appointment.
