You should never have to forgo the care you need to look and feel your best due to financial hardship. For this reason, Richmond Smile Center offers a number of payment options.
Financing options include CareCredit, which may enable you to stretch the cost of treatment over several months at no interest for qualifying borrowers. Springstone Patient Financing allows patients to borrow up to $40,000 to reduce the cost burden. No interest plans are available, and no upfront payment is needed.
Patients also benefit from the expertise of an in-office insurance specialist who can navigate this complex industry to get the benefits policyholders have paid for and deserve. While not all treatments are covered by insurance, many of the procedures to get you healthier and happier with your appearance are covered at least partially by your insurance provider.
Dr. Martin and his team also encourage you to see the recommended procedures as an investment in quality of life and in your health. Consider the value that comes with getting adequate sleep, instead of battling through discomfort or tooth grinding that can damage teeth and cause facial pain. Many dental conditions can result in missed work and school days. Missing work can take a financial toll. Also, consider how, as these conditions progress, more extensive and costly procedures may be needed.
In fact, the D.C.-based Children's Dental Health Project reported that the average dental-related costs are 40 percent lower over a 5-year time period for children who received their first preventive treatment before age 1, versus their counterparts whose parents waited to get that all-important first checkup. In this scenario, parents saved almost $300 in dental costs during those early years of life. Imagine how those costs add up over time.
Don't delay getting the treatment you need or getting back on a healthy, consistent preventive plan. In addition, certainly don't let financial concerns hold you back from getting the care you need. A cornerstone of affordable family dentistry in Richmond VA is a personal consultation to discuss your goals, concerns, options, and costs. Open communication is vital.
