Does my dentist offer payment plan options?

Regular dental check-ups, teeth cleaning and whitening, preventative care and dental treatments, such as Invisalign and orthodontics, are important in maintaining healthy teeth, gums and a confident smile.

Access to dental care services should be simple and accessible for both you and your family. Like any service or product, quality treatment does come at a cost, however Profilo° Dental is a strong advocate for the importance of dental hygiene and health for your overall wellbeing. We’ve made our expert dental treatment accessible to as many people as we can by offering interest-free payment plans that allow you to get started with the treatment you need now, and spread the cost out over time with easy to manage repayments.

No fuss, pay later solutions can be used for teeth whitening, dental implants, crowns, braces, Invisalign, veneers and many other dental procedures. The process to get started is simple, with no complicated financial contracts or lengthy approval processes.
