A patient came in last week with this very question. She had been having pain in her mouth for over 6 months, but did not know she could go to the dentist because she did not have any insurance.
YOU ABSOLUTELY SHOULD GO TO THE DENTIST, EVEN IF YOU DON”T HAVE INSURANCE!
You will of course have to pay cash for your visits, but I doubt there are any dentists that don’t accept cash.
I know spending money on bi-annual cleanings sounds like a lot to shell out, but it is certainly much less expensive than the extensive work that might need to be done due to neglect. The expensive procedures can be minimized or eliminated with regular check ups and cleanings twice per year.
Many patients that do not have insurance are also worried about how they are going to pay for their dental visits. At my office, we offer convenient payment plans to work within your budget. We accept cash, checks, Visa and Master card. We also have started offering Care Credit, a no interest health care credit card. After a simple application and approval process, we can set you up on 3, 6, and 12 month no interest payment plans or 24-60 month plans subject to interest. This is a great way for patients without insurance to find the finances necessary to get the treatment they need. To learn more about Care Credit or apply online click here.
Our office also accepts most dental insurances. A lot of times it is hard to find a dentist that takes your insurance. We are preferred providers for Washington Dental Service’s Delta Dental plan, Regence Insurance plans, and DSHS, but we take almost all other insurances as well. Give us a call if you would like us to confirm that we accept your insurance.
Don’t put off treatment any longer- there are options available to work within your budget!
