If you are self-pay and not able to pay all of your up-front dental costs, don’t worry! There are options available to you for most dentists. Atlantic Smiles Dental of Fernandina Beach, FL offers an in-house dental plan that comes with discounts, and even a credit plan that allows you to make payments.

Make Payments On Your Dental Appointment Costs

Many dentists offer plans that allow you to make payments over time. This allows you to get into the dentist without costing more than you can afford all at once. Don’t let money keep you from visiting your dentist. You will ultimately put yourself at risk of needing even more expensive dental care if you do not visit the dentist. We recommend visiting your local Fernandina Beach area dentist to see whether they have options available to you.

Do Dentists Offer Discounts?

Many dentists will offer discounts in-house if you are self-pay. In other words, patients that do not have insurance and pay cash can lower their appointment costs. This is a great option! Atlantic Smiles Dental offers in-house discounts for self-pay patients to help make dental visits more affordable. Take care of yourself. Maintain a healthy and vibrant smile and save money!

What Is Care Credit?

Care Credit is a financing option available at Atlantic Smiles Dental for qualifying applicants. If approved, Care Credit allows patients to pay off their appointment expenses over time. Visit your local Fernandina Beach area dentist to learn more about dental financing options.

Who Can Apply For Dentist Payment Plans?

Anyone can apply for dental payment plans at participating dental offices. There are a variety of options. Contact your dentist to learn more. If you are insured or uninsured, options may be available to you. Ask questions! It never hurts to find out what’s available to you!

Which Dentists Do Payment Plans?
