How do DentiCare Payment Plans help increase patient retention?
Dental and orthodontic treatment can be expensive, especially if patients have a substantial treatment plan. This expense poses a barrier for some patients to get the treatment they need. An affordable payment plan can help your patients budget for their dental treatment instead of paying upfront.
Patients are more likely to return to your practice for regular visits when they don’t have to pay for their treatment in one lump sum. Offering affordable payment plans can help reduce the financial burden and make dental treatment more accessible.
What you need to know about DentiCare Payment Plans
DentiCare Payment Plans aren’t your traditional dental loans. The main benefits for patients include:

Interest free payment plans
Unlike other dental loans available, DentiCare Payment Plans are interest free.
Longer payment terms
Some dental loans only offer short payment terms, meaning instalments are higher for patients. DentiCare offers payment terms up to 50% longer than other Buy Now, Pay Later dental options.
DentiCare Payment Plan terms:
SmileNow – 12 to 20 weeks*
DentiCare Plus – 2 to 24 months (36 months for orthodontic)*
