How We Make Dentistry Affordable

December 30, 2018
Posted By: Dr. Daniel Domingue

Has concern over the cost of treatment kept you from visiting the dentist over the years? You’re not alone! Price is a concern for many patients, especially if you don’t have dental insurance.

The truth is, dental insurance only defrays a small portion of the fee when you need significant dental treatment. Dr. J. Jerome Smith and Dr. Daniel Domingue understand this, which is why we work with third-party financing companies to help make the dentistry you need affordable for your budget.


If you are looking at an elaborate treatment plan that requires multiple phases or complicated procedures, CareCredit can help you break the total cost of your treatment into affordable monthly payments. Better yet, they even offer interest-free plans for well-qualified patients.

CareCredit is easy to apply for at home or in our dental office, and our treatment coordinator is happy to answer any questions you may have about CareCredit and their options.

Lending Club

Lending Club is another third-party financing company that allows you to choose the payment plan and interest rate that most comfortably fit your budget. Like CareCredit, the application process is quick and easy, and you’ll receive an immediate decision so you can move forward with the treatment you need promptly.

Why Preventive Care Saves You Money

Did you know that visiting your dentist in Lafayette, LA every six months saves you money? These visits can detect many dental concerns like tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease in early stages before they become a costlier issue to resolve.

This is how spending money on your routine six-month cleaning and checkups actually saves you money in the long run!
