There are different payment methods available at Washington Family Dental Care in Washington and the following section provides a quick overview of these payment methods.

Personal Checks

Paying with a check is assumed to be a long process, but in reality, it is not. If you need to use a personal check, our office is happy to provide you with all the necessary details needed.  Such details may include the receiver’s name, account number, etc.

Credit Cards

Today, many people prefer paying with their credit cards than any other payment method. Thousands of credit card transactions are made every minute around the world.

Credit cards are found to be convenient and safer to carry around.

Several credit card companies offer many attractive benefits on transactions. Paying for dental services through credit cards not only fix your dental problems but can also help improve your credit. The two most common dental treatments that are paid for through credit cards are cosmetic treatments and surgical procedures, such as extractions.

We accept the majority of credit cards to provide the maximum convenience.

Cash

Approximately 42% of all dentistry payments are made through cash and direct payments. This is because many patients find it convenient to pay in cash and clear the transaction fees upfront. It also saves the individual from going through their insurance company to have the dental costs covered.

It is also common for patients to pay for half of their treatment in cash and have the remaining portion covered by insurance. However, this should be approved before beginning your procedure.

CareCredit

Our office accepts CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that is used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by dental insurance. CareCredit is subject to credit approval, but once you are accepted, you can use it again and again. CareCredit is a great option if you're on a budget, in that you can pay for your dental expenses in installments. Ask us about CareCredit today! Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions.

Insurance and Payments

Medical insurance is a crucial tool for effectively managing your budget. Insurance companies cover most of your health expenses, saving you from paying out of your pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist patients, our office in Washington also processes treatment compensations through dental insurance.

It is important that you verify with your insurance if we are an accepted provider to use through your dental insurance. Since dental plans can vary in terms of services covered and accepted providers, it is important you talk to your insurance to understand your plan and prepare before your visit with us. Keep in mind that if your dental insurance only covers part of your services, you will have a balance remaining for which you can pay through our other payment options available. If you are paying your dental services through your insurance, please make sure to bring your insurance card and a form of ID the day of your visit.
