Payment Options that Work for You.
The Gentle Dentist makes every effort to make it convenient and affordable for you to pay for your dental care.
Payment Options Accepted
For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards as well as cash or check.
Flexible Treatment Plans
Our treatment coordinators will work with you to arrange a treatment plan that fits your timetable and budget. We can often break your payments down into affordable installments. We also offer layaway dentistry, which allows you to save for upcoming dental procedures.
The Gentle Dentist is proud to accept CareCredit, a special financing option for healthcare services.

Insurance and Co-Pay Coordination
It is our pleasure to assist you in maximizing your dental insurance benefit by completing your claim forms for you. As a courtesy, in addition to filing the claim, we will initially ask you only for your estimated co-payment. Please understand that this is only an estimate and is based upon the information available to us. While we are happy to wait for the insurance portion of your fee, the patient portion is expected at each visit in cash, by check, or by credit card.
The range of your dental insurance benefits depends solely on what your employer wishes to purchase. Some dental insurance plans cover as little as 30 percent or as much as 100 percent of dental services, with most falling in the 40 percent to 80 percent range.
Once your carrier has paid the claim, any difference will be due upon receipt of our statement. If for any reason we have not received your insurance carrier's payment 90 days after the claim, the remaining balance will be due and payable by you. Please contact The Gentle Dentist if you have any questions or concerns about our payment policy.
