Budget-Friendly Options

Modern dentistry gives us numerous options to treat particular concerns and problems. These options aren’t exactly equal, but they offer different benefits. One option might be faster. Another might be more attractive and longer-lasting. And sometimes we have treatment options that are less expensive.

Whenever there is a less expensive treatment option, we will let you know. We will never offer a treatment that doesn’t meet our standard of care, but sometimes we can provide treatment at a significantly lower cost. Lower cost often comes with other tradeoffs, however, and we’ll make sure you understand these tradeoffs before deciding on the best treatment plan for you.

We Work with Insurance

Dental insurance is essential for many people who find it hard to fit dental care into their budget. We understand, and we’re happy to work with many insurance plans, including:

  • BAI
  • United Concordia
  • UPMC
  • Cigna
  • BAI
  • UPMC
  • United Concordia
  • Cigna

Have a different insurance? Feel free to call and ask if we work with the company. Even if we don’t accept that insurance now, we might add it in the future.

It’s important to remember that insurance coverage is always uncertain. Insurance companies have their compensation schedules, and you may get less from them than you think. We will do our best to help you understand your coverage and can even submit a treatment plan for pre-approval to help you understand how much your insurance is likely to cover.

Tucker Dental Excellence Smile Club

Preventive dentistry is probably the best investment in health care. Getting regular dental cleanings and checkups can save you thousands of dollars in dental treatments and other healthcare costs you can avoid. Our Smile Club makes it an even better deal. For one low annual fee, you can cover your checkups, cleanings, and annual x-rays. It’s a $100 savings per member per year.

Financing with CareCredit

Sometimes you need dental care or want dental treatments that don’t fit into your budget. In these situations, financing with CareCredit can help bridge the gap.

CareCredit is financing specifically for healthcare, including dentistry. It’s easy to apply for, most people can qualify for enough to cover their treatment cost, and it offers attractive terms. The exact terms you qualify for will depend on your situation, but it can include no-interest plans, and low-payment plans that spread the cost out over a longer period of time.

You can apply for CareCredit online or we can help you fill out the forms in our office–it only takes a few minutes.
