You Can Afford Orthodontic Care with CareCredit

No longer put off orthodontic treatment for your children because you cannot afford it.  Many doctors in our area have started to offer CareCredit payment options as an alternative to consumer credit cards, cash or checks.

What is CareCredit?

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card for medical treatments and procedures including orthodontics.  It allows you to pay for Invisalign or Braces treatment over time for your or your entire family.

CareCredit is not an insurance policy, but it does help you pay out-of-pocket costs that may not be covered.  If you have insurance, use it.  We highly recommend to continue using available dental coverage towards your bill.  The remaining balance can be paid off over time using CareCredit.

The Application Process

The entire process is private, fast and simple.  You have a couple options for applying for CareCredit financing.

Ask to apply at your provider’s office.

Most local providers offering CareCredit will have an in-house representative or trained staff to walk you through the process.

It is very similar to applying for a Kohls or Macy’s credit card.  A staff member can assist you through each question, or you can quietly fill out a printed application on your own.  After you submit the app, it will run through the system, and you will learn if you are approved within minutes.

At this point, you can initiate the treatment you need immediately by using funds at any location that offers CareCredit.  For example, you can use CareCredit to pay for your first orthodontic appointment or assist with a downpayment.

Overall benefits to using CareCredit

When it comes down to using third party financing to pay for health care costs, it is important for the patient to be able to initiate the treatment they need immediately.  You can get approved for CareCredit within minutes, and you do not have to wait to receive a physical card in order to access funds.

Another benefit is that you can make small monthly payments over a period of time.  Most people do not have a large sum of cash to drop at one time.

Also, their website is designed to help you manage your account at your convenience.  You can view your bill online and make payments if you are logged in or if you call a CareCredit representative.


DOWN PAYMENTS– Adjustable Down Payments – a down payment shouldn’t get in the way of treatment.  We offer flexible down payments that people can actually afford.

MONTHLY PAYMENTS – Flexible monthly payments – monthly plans that make treatment affordable so that getting started isn’t a burden or added stress.

PAYMENT PERIODS – Adjustable payment periods – extend financing longer than your treatment time.  Extended financing reduces stress and helps bring the monthly payment within a more affordable range. 

We do this all in-house with no interest because we believe in our patients.  We love providing patients from Navarre, Mary Esther, Fort Walton Beach, Shalimar, Niceville, Valparaiso, Eglin Air Force Base, Hurlburt Air Base, and Crestview great financial options for braces and Invisalign.
