CareCredit

CareCredit is a healthcare "credit card" that allows you to finance dental treatment and pay it off with affordable monthly payments. There are even no-interest plans available based on your treatment needs and eligibility.

Our goal is to remove financial barriers so that all of our patients, regardless of age, income, and dental needs, can receive the care they need and desire. If you are interested in this service, please talk to us about this option and we will help you apply.
