When someone has a sore tooth or gingivitis, the last thing they want to think about is the cost of treatment. Here at Canton Crossing Dental, we believe all of our patients should have the opportunity to receive proper dental care regardless of their financial situation. We thus offer some of the most comprehensive financials in Baltimore, allowing patients to pay for treatment in a variety of ways. For more information, please check the following categories.
The majority of our patients pay for treatment using insurance. An insurance provider is a company that agrees to pay for all or a portion of the cost of dental procedures for a patient. In exchange, the patient pays a monthly amount to the company. The agreement between the patient and their provider is their insurance plan.
Insurance can be confusing for many to navigate, and there is a broad range of companies and types of coverage to choose from. To simplify the payment process, we currently accept PPO and MHS plans. If you’re unsure about what kind of plan you have, be sure to contact your insurance provider before agreeing to treatment.
Not everyone can afford dental insurance or is willing to work with a provider. When this happens, CareCredit®️ is an excellent alternative. CareCredit is a card that patients can use to pay upfront for treatment. They then make installment payments to the company that manages the card.
There are a couple of benefits to using CareCredit. Many of our patients use it because they then only have to pay when they need treatment and not invest in a plan with monthly installments. CareCredit also offers low-interest rates and peace of mind when someone needs care like a root canal or application of dental crowns.
We ask that all new patients bring a copy of their insurance card or plan with them to the first appointment so the information can be entered into our system. This simplifies billing.
All patients are responsible for understanding their plans and coverage.
