Cash and Personal Checks
Paying with cash is one of the most common and reliable ways to cover dental care costs. Since cash payments can be faster and more convenient, many of our patients opt for this method. We also accept personal checks at our dental office. Our staff is happy to provide you with any information you may need to complete the check accurately.
Our office accepts CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that is used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by dental insurance. CareCredit is subject to credit approval, but once you are accepted, you can use it again and again. CareCredit is a great option if you're on a budget, in that you can pay for your dental expenses in installments. Ask us about CareCredit today! Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions.
Medical insurance is 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 O'Fallon, Missouri 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 also important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active. Many policies enter into effect after several months of your application approval. You are 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. Although we are in network with several providers, some insurance agencies are not registered with us.
