At Hagerstown Smiles Dental Care, we want to nurture great relationships you, our patients. Our approach is to provide a kind, relaxing atmosphere where you feel comfortable, not judged, and know that we always have your best interest at heart. This also extends to our payment options. Very few people have money set aside specifically for dental treatments. When an emergency arises, you shouldn’t procrastinate care because of finances.
Haley, our Office Team Leader and Treatment Plan Coordinator, takes time to have one-on-one discussions with patients about treatment and financing options every day. We offer discounts for payment in full, an in-office savings plan, work with Care Credit for interest-free financing, as well of Lending Club with a monthly payment plan. Of course, many patients have dental insurance, and Fallon our Insurance Specialist, will make sure that you maximize and understand your benefits. She also carefully works to guarantee that claims get processed properly.
In our eyes, sensible treatment is never one size fits all. Our objective is to ensure that you can go about your day pain-free and healthy. If you need and are worried about extensive or costly treatment, there are always alternatives. We will work with you to find a sensible solution rather than hard selling you on a particular procedure. We’ve found that providing options creates a sense of trust between our team and our patients.
Doctors, hygienists, and even the office support team, aim to help you get the best care possible. Some dental procedures are truly life altering, and to be able to help improve a person’s quality of life provides us all with great joy.
Remember - your experience with the dentist should be as comfortable as possible. Getting pressured into a particular course of action is no fun. They’re your teeth, and you should be able to decide what to do with them. However, it is sometimes a challenge when we care more about a patient’s dental health than he/she does. With today’s technology and scientific research, we know that oral health affects your heart health, brain health, and overall systemic health.
At HSDC, we like to say, “we aren’t in the dental business, we are in the caring-for-people business.” We are providing a service that everyone needs, albeit preventative, restorative, or emergency attention. We will simply present all the options available to you and discuss what is wise, both for your oral health and your finances.
