How to Make Dental Care Affordable

We encourage you to include dental healthcare expenses, from expected routine care to potential emergency care, in your budget each year. Fortunately, there are many ways to keep your dental care affordable. Let’s review some of your options!

  1. Preventive Care Is Key

  2. Dental care is more affordable if you never develop any serious problems that require special treatment. Visit us every six months to receive a dental examination and cleaning. A regular checkup costs less in the long run compared to an undetected dental problem developing into an advanced stage.

    In between dental checkups, maintain good oral health habits. Brush your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time, floss daily, drink plenty of water, consume a balanced diet, and avoid tobacco.

  3. Use Your Dental Insurance Benefits

  4. If you have dental insurance, be sure to use your benefits. A dental checkup can be free or discounted with your dental insurance. You can always check with your provider about what they cover and how much you will need to pay out-of-pocket.

  5. Look for Special Discounts

  6. Some dental offices offer discounts for special circumstances. For example, our office offers discounts if you’re a senior, in the military, or paying in cash.

  7. Consider CareCredit®

  8. Financing through reputable third parties can make paying for your dental treatment more manageable. CareCredit acts like a healthcare credit card that you can pay over time. Our office can provide more details if you’re interested in this option.

  9. Ask About Payment Plans

  10. Many dental offices, including Donald Kim, DDS, Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, are willing to create a payment plan. This option lets you break up payments over time, which makes it more affordable than paying for your treatment all up-front.
