CareCredit — Financing Simplified

From patients’ smartphones, computers, or your office, there are many ways to help your patients get access to a CareCredit credit card. 

It’s simple. Accepting CareCredit to help more patients get a straighter and more attractive smile is easier than ever because there are so many ways to learn about and apply for the CareCredit credit card. If your practice management software has CareCredit integrated, you can access the payment calculator, help patients see if they prequalify, and apply within the software (at their request),* saving your team time and helping improve efficiency. Or you can use your custom link to have patients learn about CareCredit and apply privately from their home computer or on their smart device while in the practice.  It’s financing simplified and here’s how it works:

  1. Place a CareCredit practice display that features your custom link QR code in your reception area and throughout your practice to let all patients know you accept CareCredit. This can be especially helpful for the 12.7+ million current CareCredit cardholders who may already have a way to pay for care.
  2. Have patients scan your custom link QR code with their smart device to learn about CareCredit, see if they prequalify (without impacting their credit bureau score), and apply for the CareCredit credit card privately. You can also use provided custom link digital assets to enable patients to see if they prequalify and apply before their appointment.

You no longer need to share the details about CareCredit, assist with the application, or communicate credit decisions, which may save your team some valuable time. And your patients no longer need to share sensitive information for the application. It’s that easy and convenient — for patients and for your team. And, as always, with CareCredit, you get paid in 2 business days, which can help improve cash flow and reduce billing and collections.

Did you know that 1 out of every 10 residents in the United States has or has had a CareCredit credit card?**
