We are committed to working with you to make your dental care affordable. We have a variety of ways you can pay for your care.

Dental Insurance and Benefit Plans

We’re here to help you appropriately utilize the dental insurance benefits your employer provides or that you bring to us. As a service to our patients, we work with most dental plans, whether or not we are in network. As a courtesy to you, we will submit your claim to your dental insurance provider. Talk to us if you are changing jobs or dental insurance providers. See Insurance 101 for more.

Same-Day Cash Savings

For patients without dental insurance or a benefit plan, we offer a 5% savings for those who pay in full on the day of service with cash or check.

Patients 60 years and older without dental insurance or a benefit plan are eligible to receive an additional 5% savings (total of 10%) for prepayment or full payment by cash or check on the day of treatment.

Medical or Health Spending Account (Flex Spending Account)

Some of our patients have flexible spending accounts through their employers. Patients can use the money they have set aside in these accounts for dental expenses not paid for by insurance. We are happy to assist our patients by providing the necessary documentation for reimbursement.

Payment Plans

Many of our patients who do not have a dental benefit plan use payment plan options through CareCredit®. Read more about CareCredit.

Credit or Debit Cards

Park Dental accepts debit cards and most major credit cards.
