Care Credit

Cost remains one of the top barriers to treatment acceptance.  To help patients move forward with recommended care, the CareCredit credit card is accepted at over 116,000 enrolled dental locations. And now it’s even easier for patients to privately and securely learn about and apply for CareCredit, a healthcare credit card, – anytime, anywhere – with the Custom Link.  Patients can use your Custom Link to apply using their smart device while in your practice or on their home computer prior to their appointment.

The Custom Link comes in several formats including a QR code to display in your practice, a URL link to include in emails or texts, and buttons and banners for websites and social media.  The team no longer needs to collect sensitive information or communicate credit decisions.  And if approved, patients can immediately use CareCredit to pay for needed or wanted treatment.

  Did you know:

  • CareCredit is accepted at more than 250,000 provider and health- focused retail locations nationwide
  • there are 7 million CareCredit cardholders
  • another 156,000+ new accounts are approved, on average, every month

In addition to providing a comprehensive range of financing options, CareCredit can connect dentists and teams with:

  • free information and resources that address key practice issues, from failed appointments to attracting new patients to patient retention, which were developed from the input of dentists, dental teams and dental educators
  • a team of Practice Development Managers who can help the team maximize the value of the CareCredit relationship
