CareCredit

If you don’t have insurance or are interested in making the cost of your dental treatment more affordable, CareCredit is an option to consider. CareCredit allows you the flexibility of breaking down your total due into easy monthly payments. Best of all, as long as you pay the balance within the agreed promotional period, you either won’t be charged any interest, or if in a long-term payment plan, you will have an affordable monthly payment with low interest.

Applying for CareCredit is easy, and a member of our team will be happy to assist you, or you can apply online at the CareCredit website.

You may also pay your current balance online using your CareCredit account. Here is the "Pay my Provider" link: https://www.carecreditpay.com/pmyp/showSearch

Frequently Asked Questions

We accept long-term financing for up to 60 months using Care Credit. Even with bad credit or no credit, these plans can help you pay for more extensive dental treatments with the use of a co-signor. 

Brush your child's teeth for about two minutes twice a day: once just before bedtime and at least one other time during the day. Encourage them to spit out excess toothpaste but not to rinse with lots of water. Rinsing with water after tooth brushing will wash away the fluoride and reduce its benefits.

For your comfort, Dr. Stone will refer you to an oral surgeon who specializes in all oral surgeries for your tooth (teeth) extraction(s). In most cases, the removal of teeth/wisdom teeth is performed under local anesthesia, laughing gas (nitrous oxide/oxygen analgesia) or general anesthesia. These options, as well as the surgical risks (i.e., sensory nerve damage, sinus complications), will be discussed with you before the procedure is performed. Once the teeth are removed, the gum is sutured. To help control bleeding, bite down on the gauze placed in your mouth. You will rest under our supervision in the office until you are ready to be taken home. Upon discharge, your postoperative kit will include postoperative instructions, a prescription for pain medication, antibiotics, and a follow-up appointment in one week for suture removal.

A pediatric dentist has two to three years specialty training following dental school and limits his/her practice to treating children only. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants and children through adolescence, including those with special health needs.

Based on your child's needs, Dr. Stone may refer your child to see a pediatric dentist for their dental care.
