Dental payment plans are a good option when kids need to see the dentist, and parents need to spread payments out over time. Multiple payment options can help relieve the burden of an upfront payment.
At Kool Smiles, we do not offer our own payment plan. However, we can help you find several options to help you pay for your children’s dental services.
CareCredit is a credit card specifically designed to help pay for health and dental procedures. At Kool Smiles, parents can use CareCredit to pay for their kid’s treatments and then pay back the balance on the credit card over time.
How is CareCredit different than a regular credit card?
There are several advantages to using CareCredit that you would not get using a standard credit card, including:
Dental discount plans can help you save money on kids’ dental treatments. These plans work more like a membership that offers discounts for specific procedures than an a typical health insurance plan.
However, unlike insurance insurance, discount plans will only let your children visit dentists within a certain network, and you will still have to make monthly payments.
For eligible children, state or federal programs like Medicaid, TRICARE, and SCHIP can cover the cost of your child’s dental treatments.
Kool Smiles accepts Medicaid, TRICARE, and SCHIP at every location, and we never limit the number of Medicaid patients we will see. Medicaid fully covers eligible children for dental work as long as it is preventive or medically necessary.
To see if you’re eligible for Medicaid benefits, find out if you qualify for Medicaid today.
At Kool Smiles, it’s our mission to bring affordable dental care to all kids. That’s why our prices are always affordable, regardless of which payment method or plan you use.
