I Don’t Have Insurance: Will The Dentist Take Payment Plans?

Did you know that 108 million Americans don’t have dental insurance? Lack of insurance shouldn’t keep your children from having healthy teeth.

While we don’t offer payment plans at Kool Smiles, we do offer many different payment options. Find a Kool Smiles location near you to get started with affordable dental care.

Affordable Payment Options at Kool Smiles

At Kool Smiles, we believe that all kids should have access to great dental care. To meet the needs of all of our patients, we offer many different payment methods to help keep your dental care affordable.

After your initial consultation, we are happy to provide estimates of the cost of your child’s care before we provide any treatments so you are never surprised with the prices.

CareCredit Makes Payments Easy

While we do not take payment plans, we do offer CareCredit to our patients. CareCredit is a credit card that helps spread out the cost of your child’s dental treatments over time.

We are happy to help you with the application at any of our offices.

We can apply the cost of your visit to CareCredit on the spot. By breaking up the cost into monthly payments with CareCredit, you will be able to get the care your child needs without worrying about the cost.

Other Payment Methods

Whether you are bringing your kids in for a routine checkup, x-rays, or cleanings, you can afford the dental care that they need by paying through other forms, such as:

  • Cash
  • Credit card
  • Debit card

If you don’t have insurance, see if your children qualify for Medicaid. We accept Medicaid, TRICARE, and SCHIP at all of our locations.

Why Dental Care Is Important

Not having dental insurance shouldn’t keep your child from visiting the dentist regularly. With regular dental visits, your dentist will be able to maintain the health of your child’s teeth, quickly treat any problems that come up, and keep an eye on problem areas before they become a huge issue.

When you skip visiting the dentist, it will end up costing more in the long run if your dentist has to treat for problems like cavities. Coming to see us regularly will keep costs down, as maintenance is much less expensive than fixing major problems.
