How do I ask a dentist, successfully, for a way to arrange more modest payments for extensive dental work?

How do I ask a dentist, successfully, for a way to arrange more modest payments for extensive dental work?

Payment Plans: Each office has its own policies. That being said, please remember than a dental practice is a small business and is not in the business of making interest free, unsecured, personal loans which I believe is what you are asking for. A finance company, a bank, and CareCredit are other options you should explore to allow you to be treated under your financial terms. All the best.... ...Read more

Please also know that your description of your problem will be subjective, not objective. A dental professional may view your problem, after a thorough examination, differently than you describe.
