When patients have an out-of-pocket cost for their dental needs, having special financing available through the CareCredit healthcare credit card may help more accept recommended care.
- 47% of patients who did not have CareCredit said they would have considered financing if it enabled them to get care immediately*.
- 43% of patients said they were very likely or extremely likely to apply for or use CareCredit for treatment fees of $600*. That percentage increased as cost increased.
- Of patients who used CareCredit, had it not been available, 29% said they would have gone to another provider and/or 39% would have chosen not to purchase the dental services*.
