We are 100% committed to creating the perfect payment plan for each patient who enters our Palm Harbor, FL offices. To make this happen, Paul L. Caputo, DDS offers a wide range of options to fit every need and budget. But more importantly, our practice believes in giving you and your family great products and services to restore your smile, your oral health, and your self-confidence. Below you will find some additional information about financing, insurance options, and payment plans for your new dental implants.
For your ease and convenience, we accept the following payment methods: credit cards, cash, checks, insurance, and CareCredit. If you have special circumstances, we are happy to discuss alternative payment options. However, please be aware that payment options must be agreed to in writing before you begin any procedures with Dr. Caputo.
To ensure that your experience at Paul L. Caputo, DDS is comfortable and easy, our friendly staff can help you complete all of your insurance paperwork or file it for you in our office the same day. We ask that you be aware that insurance estimates are based upon the information available at the time of your appointment. Any amounts quoted could change before your treatment and you will be responsible for any costs of your treatment that your insurance does not pay for. Unless other arrangements have been made, we appreciate payment at the time services are rendered. Patients should also be ready with any applicable co-payments when they check in for their appointment.
CareCredit is a line of credit line created to help pay for medical, dental, and veterinary expenses. The plan works much like a credit card, with a simple application procedure. Patients simply sign up as they would for a credit card and once approved, their account can be used to pay for their services. The card can also be used for multiple family members, different procedures, or even emergency pet care. This can be handy for unexpected expenses or when insurance coverage is insufficient.
CareCredit also offers a variety of different interest rates and payment plans to fit your needs and budget. Patients do not need to reapply for multiple procedures and there is no penalty for paying off the account balance early. However, we recommend that patients always check to be sure that their provider accepts CareCredit before they schedule any services. For a complete list of providers or more information on how you can sign up for CareCredit, go to www.carecredit.com or call our office.
We are all looking for a great deal and lower prices, but many of these “discount” products do not measure up when it comes to durability, strength, or quality. Patients may receive steep discounts in the beginning, but get stuck with surprise costs when products need to be replaced or do not look they way they should. Our patients can rest assured that Paul L. Caputo, DDS only uses the highest quality products with a proven and safe history of placement, use, and success.
Please also be aware that when you receive a quote, the total cost should include multiple parts of the procedure, and not just the dental implant. Your quote should be written and should include fees for the cost of the implant, the surgery, and all related expenses. Sometimes there will also be costs added for x-rays, anesthetic, and other services related to your oral surgery. We always encourage our patients to review the paperwork and ask as many questions as they need to understand their procedure.
Here at Paul L. Caputo, DDS, we offer the care, compassion, and quality patients need to restore their smile with stunning dental implants.
