Do's and don'ts for patient financing

2016 11 18 14 42 01 206 Practice Success2 400

Practices can dramatically increase case acceptance by providing a wide array of payment options, including patient financing from a reputable company. Team members should make patients aware of the different options available. When treatment is more affordable, case acceptance rises and production follows suit.


Make sure every patient knows that financing is available. This will give them the confidence to schedule their appointments, show up, and accept recommended treatment.


Don't mention only one financial option at a time. Patients will not know that other options are available and may become close-minded before they hear about options such as patient financing.
