Seven tips for your dental budget

Seven tips to fit care in your budget

We know your teeth and gums can require an investment, but we want you to get the quality care you deserve. If you have a habit of avoiding the dentist to save money, you’ll want to keep reading. We have seven ways for you to get the treatment you need, without blowing your budget.

HSAs and FSAs (Flexible Spending Accounts). With a flexible spending account, you can set aside a portion of your earnings for medical or dental expenses. FSA contributions aren’t subject to payroll taxes, so you save a lot of money. According to the official federal FSA site, a FSA can save you anywhere from 20% to over 40% on dental costs. The average person saves about 30%.

Hygiene Membership: We’ve got a solution for people without dental insurance – a dental wellness membership, starting at $59 a month. You get 10% off all treatments, too.

Prepay discount: We offer 10% off if you pay in full at least 1 week before your appointment by check, cash, or credit card.

Payment plans: Split the cost of your care into two or three monthly payments – no credit check required! We’ve got this interest-free option for you if you just need an extra month or two.

Interest-free financing: You can finance any treatment of $500 or more with 0% interest, so the care you need can fit within your monthly budget. We offer 6, 12, 18, and 24 month interest-free plans through Care Credit and the Lending Club, pending credit approval.

Switch your insurance: Your employer might offer several different levels of dental insurance, and some may include more benefits than others! Check with your HR department to see if you can boost your benefits during open enrollment if you anticipate needing treatment.

Prevention and wellness: The best way to save money on dental care is by going to the dentist! At routine visits we can give you dental wellness tips and find little problems that can be fixed easily before they grow into big ones. Taking care of your teeth on a regular basis will also reduce the chances of you needing major treatment. Brush your teeth at least twice a day, floss, replace your toothbrush every three months, and rinse with water after sugary food or drinks.
* Please note that discounts and interest-free financing cannot typically be combined or used with in-network insurance.
