Lavelle Family & Cosmetic Dentistry serves you not only by providing outstanding dental care, but by also providing outstanding financing options that work for you. Because many patients do not have dental insurance, we provide CareCredit to our patients.

A CareCredit payment plan enables you to float your cash and save your money for other needs or investments. Some other healthcare practices offer installment plans, but these may still require a significant cash outlay within a short amount of time. That’s when healthcare financing, such as CareCredit, can help.

Healthcare financing may seem like a new concept, but it’s actually been around for more than 20 years. A variety of healthcare financing companies offer a range of plans and terms of payment. It’s important to find a plan that works for you with a company you trust. Stability, dependability and experience are essential, as well as a company offering payment plans that fit your budget.

Many companies require sign-up fees or offer “teaser” interest rates that could increase after a short period of time. Because you want to be able to choose the right doctor for you, it also helps to work with a company with a large network of providers — ensuring you can select from many doctors near you. Other things to consider are whether the offering is a loan for a fixed amount or a credit card with which you can make additional purchases for follow-up treatments or new procedures.
