What kind of payment options does CareCredit offer? (from carecredit.com

CareCredit offers a full range of financing options. On purchases of $200 or more, we offer 6, 12, 18, and 24 month plans where you can avoid paying interest if you make your minimum monthly payments and pay the full amount due by the end of the promotional period. Interest will be charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional balance, including optional charges, is not paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months.. Minimum monthly payments are required.

For patients and clients with higher treatment fees who would prefer more time to pay with convenient monthly payments, CareCredit offers longer payment options with a reduced, fixed interest rate. The fixed monthly payment amount is based on repayment over a 24, 36, 48 or 60- month period. Purchases of $1,000 or more are eligible for a 24, 36 or 48-month offer and purchases of $2,500 or more are eligible for a 60-month offer. Not all practices offer all CareCredit financing options, so check with your provider.

You must make at least the fixed minimum monthly payment on or before the due date each month to keep your account in good standing. You can always pay more than the minimum payment. For complete details, please read the Credit Card Account Agreement within the application. To find out which plans are available in your provider's practice, be sure to speak with the office manager or financial coordinator.

 

How do Clear Correct clear braces work? 

(from clearcorrect.com)

Your doctor sends your records to ClearCorrect along with a prescription. ClearCorrect uses those records to create 3D models of your teeth. Following the instructions provided by your doctor, ClearCorrect creates a "treatment setup" representing the desired position of your teeth at the end of treatment. At the same time, ClearCorrect also manufactures "Phase Zero" passive aligners designed to fit your teeth and get you accustomed to wearing aligners right away.

TESTIMONIALS

See All Testimonials

  • For years I've hated going to the dentist, particularly to see the hygienist. I put it off for years. When I went in the other day after about a decade between cleanings, I was expecting to get a righteous sermon about how I have obviously not been brushing/flossing correctly and I'd better shape up fast before what teeth I have left fall out. Instead, the technician patiently explained exactly what she was doing as she went along, answered all of my questions and made me feel completely at ease. At the dentist's office, mind you! Will wonders never cease?

  • I needed an emergency appointment 2 days before leaving town and had no local dentist. Dr. York gave me an appointment on extremely short notice, and after normal office hours. She and her assistant made me feel completely comfortable and provided a concise analysis of my situation. She prescribed the medication I needed and answered all of my concerns with humor and compassion.

  • Really appreciate that Dr. York and the staff are so talented.....and friendly.

  • The most painless and stress-free extraction anyone could wish for. 

    - Candices, Lafayette

     

  • I'm reserving that last star until I have major work done! Dr. York is wonderful, but so far it's only been cleaning (with the best tech- Charise!), and minor drilling. If, at some point it's time for a root canal, and Dr. York doesn't kill me, I'll award the fifth star.
