Having a dentist with payment plans offers a number of benefits when it comes to affording critical treatments for your family as well as elective cosmetic dental procedures. At Summit Dental Center we offer a variety of dental financing options that fit every need and budget.
The cost of delaying recommended dental treatments
It’s a known fact: dental problems tend to progress from bad to worse when unattended to. A small cavity that could be remedied with a simple filling in the early stages doesn’t take long to turn into an abscessed tooth that requires a complicated root canal procedure to save it. When a root canal is recommended, but declined by the patient, odds are we will soon see you for a tooth extraction and, subsequently, a dental implant procedure or bridge to restore full chewing function.
Of course, a simple filling costs far less than a root canal or tooth restoration – whether you have good dental insurance or not. Consider, too, the pain and loss of productivity you may suffer from a decayed tooth as you delay needed treatment. That pain extends to your wallet when you find yourself spending your Christmas gift budget just to stop the pain in your mouth.
The rewards of getting the smile you want, when you want it
As important as great dental care is for the health of your teeth, sometimes it isn’t a critical procedure that makes our patients want to stretch their budget. Few of us are born with a movie star smile, yet most of us recognize that an even, sparkling set of teeth makes us look better and feel more confident. The positive effect of a healthy, beautiful smile on not only our self-esteem, but also on the way we are perceived by our employers, romantic partners, business associates, customers, and just about anyone we meet has been documented in numerous studies.
Many of our patients consider cosmetic procedures like dental implants, veneers, and teeth whitening an investment in themselves – their career, their social relationships, and their self-confidence.
The big catch
Of course, we all know there is a catch. In a perfect world, we all could simply get the healthy, gorgeous smile we desire. Unfortunately, dental insurance doesn’t always cover the entirety of needed treatments, and some cosmetic procedures typically aren’t covered at all. As a result, patients sometimes face out-of-pocket costs they simply cannot afford, leading to delayed dental care. So cavities turn into an abscessed teeth, career opportunities are lost, potential social relationships never get off the ground, and self-confidences crumble. You get the idea.

How our dental financing works
Depending on the dental procedure you would like to finance, Summit Dental Center offers two types of payment plans.
In-house payment plan, no credit check required!
This option is available for financing up to $5,000 and requires no credit check. We can approve you on the spot, instantly, following your consultation with your dentist. One of our financing specialists will set you up with affordable, interest-free monthly payments that fit your budget.
All we need from you is some personal and employment information, as well as your intended method of repayment.
This option is great for small procedures that simply shouldn’t wait until after the holidays as well as larger procedures; for example:
- Root canal
- Dental implant(s)
- Dental veneers
For financing extensive dental work and full-mouth makeovers (all-on-4 dental implants, for example), we partner with trusted lenders to help you obtain the credit line you need. Third-party financing is available for amounts of $300 to $30,000, and the terms of the loan will be determined independently by the lender.
