Our clients can choose from a range of payment methods for our dental services. The preference of many service users is cash payment; although, some customers also pay with credit cards. Many dental procedures are also covered under dental insurance plans.
Different payment methods are available at Valley Smiles Dental Care in Athens, Alabama. Listed below are some brief details of the alternative methods available.
Almost half of all dentistry payments are made in cash and direct payments. Many patients find it convenient to pay in cash. It is also common for patients to pay for half of their treatment in cash and have the remaining portion covered through their insurance provider. This should be approved by the insurance provider before beginning your procedure.
Today, many people prefer paying with their credit cards rather than any other payment method. Credit cards are found to be convenient and safer to carry around. Also, several credit card companies offer many attractive benefits on transactions. Paying for dental services through credit cards not only fixes your dental hygiene, but can also help improve your credit. The two most common dental treatments that are paid for with credit cards are cosmetic treatments and surgeries such as extractions. We accept the majority of credit cards to provide maximum convenience to our patients.
Our office offers Care Credit, a service that allows you to pay for your dental services in installments. Care Credit allows you to get immediate treatment without paying out of pocket the same day. Care Credit is based upon approval and can potentially pay for all your dental needs. Once you are done with your installments, you can use the full balance in future dental visits.

Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions you may have during the process.
Paying with personal checks has become an outdated method of payment, and not many service providers accept personal checks anymore. It is recommended that you verify if a dental office accepts this form of payment before the appointment.
Some people assume that paying with a check is a long process, but in reality, it is not. Should you need to use a personal check or make a bank transfer, our office will be happy to provide you with all the necessary details needed. These may include the receiver’s name, account number, etc.
