Benefits of CareCredit

Benefits of CareCredit

By Heather Hafner, Patient Relations Coordinator, Haines City Dental

Most of us have times when a certain need or situation arises, bringing with it expenses that are not part of the predicted household budget. 

In dentistry, it’s not unusual for patients who need unexpected treatments or procedures to be concerned about financing. At Haines City Dental, we are pleased to be able to refer patients to CareCredit, a financing option that can often cover expenses and remove concerns about high-interest costs.

CareCredit is not a typical credit card. It can be used to pay for health and wellness care at more than 200,000 enrolled providers nationwide — including Haines City Dental. It can be used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses medical insurance does not cover. Special financing options are available that may not be possible with other cards.

CareCredit can be used for check-ups, endodontics, periodontics, periodontal scaling, periodontal disease prevention, gingivitis prevention, fluoride treatment, ceramic fillings, sealants, and cleanings.

The card is also accepted for such needs as mouth guards for sports, dental implants, ceramic crowns, root canals, braces or retainers, Invisalign straightening, and lumineers.

CareCredit offers short-term financing options of six, 12, 18 or 24 months without interest on purchases of $200 or more when a minimum monthly payment is made – as long as the full amount owed is paid by the end of the promotional period.

You can apply by phone by calling 1-800-677-0718 or by going to carecredit.com/apply.

If you have questions about how you may be able to use this financing option, please contact us at 863-422-8338.
