Affordable Dental Care and Financing in Macomb County, MI

Hi, this is Dr. Antolak from and the owner of The Gentle Dentist. We are in Macomb County, Michigan. One thing that I want to discuss with you is dental financing.

I try to have people afford the dentistry and do it in a way that’s going to fit within their budget. Usually when I get a new dental patient, I find out the reason why they haven’t made an appointment in the past, is because they lost their dental insurance. Just because you don’t have dental insurance doesn’t mean you can’t come in.

What we’ve done in our office is we have a special discounted dental plan. What it does is it allows the dentistry to be affordable. For $297 a year, you get two dental examinations. You get two cleanings, you get all x-rays you need, and then you get 12% off of any additional dental care you need. So for that amount, the value is well over $500 and you’re getting it for less than $300.

Plus you do get a reduction in the amount of cost for any additional care that you need as far as fillings go, crowns, extractions, dental implants, dentures, and partial dentures. Everything like that is qualified to go for this discounted service.
So in addition to our discounted dental plan we have a number of different ways of financing dentistry.

One way is pretty common and it’s called Care Credit. Care Credit does make it easy to for you to afford to have dental care done. According to this schedule here, if you wanted to finance, let’s say, $5,000 of dentistry over s 24 month period of time, you’ll be paying $243 per month, with a total cost of $5,813. That’s if you, you let it go beyond that amount. The important part about this is that you pay off your amount before the term of the contract is over. So we want to make sure that you understand all the details of Care Credit.

We also have what’s called American Healthcare Lending. In American Healthcare Lending there are a number of different programs that are available to make dentistry affordable to you. You’d be surprised, sometimes people think that they’re not going to qualify for this, but they can afford it through some of these programs.

You know, I understand that dentistry is expensive. It is expensive to operate a dental practice with insurance and all the other aspects of it including paying professional people to work with you, and in your mouth. To hire quality people as employees, it does cost for that, so we understand these needs. We understand that dentistry is expensive, but we want to try to make it as affordable as we can for you.

At our office, I have no agenda as far as the type of dental treatment that I do for you. If you desire to have one thing, and if it makes sense then I will go ahead and do that.
So, it’s important to have a complete understanding of all the pros and cons for doing any type of care before we begin any of the treatment. That is something that we try to really help our patients understand. One big part is the financial investment that’s made, so before any dentistry is done, we make it a goal of ours to discuss the fee before we begin. That is one of the things that can make people the most upset, and I understand that.
