Picking which dental practice will care for you and your family is a big decision but, often, parents feel limited in their options because of their dental insurance. In this day and time, there can be more uncertainty than ever over insurance plans and what they will and will not cover. At Devine Dentistry, your local Nashville dentists believe that cost never should be the deciding factor in your oral care.

Even if you do not have dental insurance, you should feel free to receive care from the dentist of your choice.

Here are some tips you can follow to make the financial obligation of visiting the dentist a little less daunting:

  • Stay on schedule: It may sound counter-intuitive at first, but maintaining a regular schedule of dental appointments saves you money over time. Why? By visiting your local Nashville dentist as recommended—every six months—for a professional cleaning and an examination of your oral health, you and your dentist are working together to stay on top of the condition of your teeth and mouth, making it easy to identify any problems in their early stages. This means less extensive—and less expensive—treatments will be needed to treat any problems as they arise.
  • Preparation: Now that you know you will be seeing your dentist every six months, you can plan accordingly. Set aside a few dollars each week to help cover the cost of your next appointment. You know what these check-ups will entail—a cleaning, an exam, and perhaps undergoing X-rays. The office administrator at your local Nashville dentist can help by providing a general estimate of the cost of your next appointment. Many employers, even those that do not offer dental insurance, make a health savings account available where you agree to have a fixed amount of pre-tax money deducted from each paycheck and have it deposited to a savings account to be used for medical expenses at any point during the year.

At Devine Dentistry, we believe it is important to provide the highest quality of oral care possible while also making it affordable for our patients. We accept payment in the form of cash, checks, and major credit cards including Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. We also expect most major insurance and participating insurance plans. Devine Dentistry also accepts third-party financing through CareCredit, which pays for needed or desired procedures including dental care up front and then consumers pay back the company through monthly installments that fit almost any household budget. You also can make payments online through our website, making it more convenient than ever to receive the dental care you deserve.
