When you are needing important dental work there’s often a concern about covering the costs?
At Lonsdale Dental Practice we are mindful of the expense of dental treatment and offer a variety of financial products to help you achieve your perfect smile – without the worry.
Think about benefit not cost!
The perceived cost of dental treatment can be high on of the list of reasons why people do not visit the dentist regularly. This concern, coupled with the belief that the dentist may insist you follow his or her advice to the letter, and the embarrassment you may feel if you can’t afford the treatment, keeps many people from seeking dental treatment.
The reality is that dental problems sneak up on you! Most people have no idea that there is anything wrong until they have pain and will often leave booking a dental appointment until this time. Even though it is much more cost effective to keep regular dental appointments there is no need to panic if you find yourself needing more extensive dental treatment.
Here are 3 ways in which you can manage the payment of your treatment.
PERSONAL DENTAL MANAGEMENT

PERSONAL DENTAL MANAGEMENT
However, there are tips you can employ to help keep your dental costs manageable so please consider the following:-
- Attend regular check-up and hygiene appointments.
- Ask your dentist for all of your treatment options, the pros and cons of each option, and the total cost of your treatment before you begin.
- If you require a large amount of treatment, ask if the treatment can be spread out over time.
- Ask about our 0% finance facility and In-house payment plan for both adults and children.
