Other Dental Insurance at Southridge Dental
The UnitedHealthcare Dual Complete program is the latest addition to a wide variety of dental insurance options at Southridge Dental! Our goal is to ensure our patients feel taken care of in every step of their dental journey – including insurance!
We accept most types of dental insurances and we’ll file claims on your behalf to maximize your benefits based on your coverage and policy limitations. We also provide complementary benefits and eligibility verification on your behalf before your first dental appointment.Unfortunately, dental insurance may only pay a portion of your dental care regardless of how essential the service may be to your dental health; that is why we offer internal payment plans or financing through third party institutions such as CareCredit.
While we love what modern dentistry can do, often times we find ourselves struggling with some of the high costs associated with certain procedures, especially when providing care to an entire family. (It can be expensive!) You no longer have to wait to have your dental work done. We work with CareCredit, and they make it simple for you to get dental financing.With great No Interest Financing plans available, there is no longer a need to suffer or wait for the dental procedures you need! CareCredit makes it easy. And we make it simple for you to apply. Just follow this link to apply for CareCredit through Southridge Dental.
