No Insurance? No Problem!
Not having insurance shouldn’t have to mean that quality dental care is out of your reach. That’s why we offer the “Polished Dental Savings Plan” here in Carlsbad, CA. At our practice, a small fee will give patients big benefits, including complimentary preventive services each year and significant discounts on more advanced treatment options. If you’d like to learn more, please don’t hesitate to contact our practice. We’d love to help get you signed up today!
Affordable Financing with CareCredit
In addition to our in-house savings plan, patients can also pursue convenient, manageable financing for their dental care through CareCredit. These payment plans offer low (or even no) interest and can break down the overall cost of your treatment (including purely elective procedures) into simple, monthly chunks that work with every budget.
