Financing

Serving Patients in Sarasota, Venice, Bradenton & Nearby Areas of Florida

We care about your health. Please do not allow your finances or your insurance plan’s exclusions and limitations dictate your optimal health. Infection, decay, bone loss and other health challenges can progress rapidly and what could have started as a simple procedure, if left unattended, could require more invasive, in depth and time-consuming treatment later on.

Save your health, your money, and your smile by making a treatment appointment now.

Dental treatment is an exceptional investment, benefiting your mental, physical, and psychological well-being for many years to come. While financial considerations are very important, they should not be an obstacle to obtaining important and optimal health services. We realize that different people have different needs in fulfilling their financial obligations. With this in mind, we have several affordable payment options for your convenience:

**We file all insurance claims electronically with any necessary supporting documentation, if any, as a courtesy to our guests*. However, it is important to note that The Smile Centre team members cannot possibly be aware of all of the clauses and exclusions of each guests’ insurance plan nor is it their role or responsibility since the patient is the direct customer of the insurance company. The Smile Centre, P.A. has no customer relationship with insurance companies.  We do our best to ESTIMATE insurance coverage amounts; however, all balances are ultimately the financial responsibility of the patient, including estimated insurance portions.  If, for any reason, the insurance company chooses not to cover a provided dental service, that portion is still due and payable from the patient, parent, legal guardian, or responsible party.

 

Option A: The Smile Centre Payment Arrangements 
(Check or cash for single or multiple visits, non-emergency treatment)

  • Partial weekly or monthly pre-payments that fit your budget are accepted to help move forward with scheduling and attaining treatment.
  • Balance is due in full 3 days prior to reserve the appointment time for starting scheduled treatment.  **Emergency diagnostic visits must be paid in full at the time of service.  Emergency treatment visits must be paid in full prior to starting emergency treatment.

Many patients put off treatments and procedures because they cannot afford to pay in full. We offer outside financing payment plans as a convenient option to consumer credit cards, cash or checks. These plans allow you to pay over time often without incurring interest charges instead of a lump sum prior to treatment. Offering outside financing removes the accounts receivable responsibilities from the doctor and allows us to focus on recommending and providing the best care to YOU.
