Some
Information For You

As an in-network provider for most dental insurance plans in California, Hello Smile always strives to provide our patients with the highest quality of dental care, combined with the most convenient and affordable payment options. To make that happen, we will work with you to ensure that you are maximizing your insurance reimbursement for all our services and procedures.

Currently, we are a provider for some prominent dental PPO insurance plans below, and also take other PPOs not listed below:

Insurance

We are not contracted with HMOs and DentiCal, but if you have one of these insurances, please note that many procedures are not covered by your insurance. If you have been told that you need a procedure that has little to no coverage by your HMO or DentiCal, please contact us so that we can give you a better patient experience and take care of those procedures for you.

Because our primary goal at Hello Smile is to ensure your utmost comfort by promptly providing you with the best dental care possible, we offer several convenient ways to both plan and pay for your treatment. For that reason, we accept VISA and MasterCard, along with cash, personal checks and direct payments, from most dental insurance companies.

Please note that costs associated with our dental procedures may vary based on the type and complexity of the procedure performed. While you’d probably agree that the benefits associated with a beautiful, natural-looking smile are immeasurable, dental procedures can sometimes be expensive. To help make those procedures more affordable, we conveniently accept dental insurance, and offer interest-free financing options.

We always tell patients not to let the upfront costs intimidate you, because help, in the form of affordable payment options, is always available. The first step is scheduling an appointment to determine exactly which treatment or procedure you or your loved one will need, along with the associated costs. Once that’s completed, our insurance and billing specialist will provide you with affordable payment options. Most of our patients quickly discover that the benefits of a restored smile far outweigh the financial costs!

You can make payments in exchange for our dental services using these methods:

  • VISA or MasterCard
  • Cash or check
  • CareCredit or Lending Club

We accept payments through CareCredit (Administered by GE Financial Services) or Lending Club, which is a flexible patient payment program that’s specifically designed for healthcare-related expenses. CareCredit / Lending Club makes it easier for you to get the treatment or procedure you want or need. CareCredit / Lending Club patient financing can be used at over 45,000 practices nationwide for:

  • Co-payments
  • Deductibles
  • Dental care not covered by insurance, like certain cosmetic procedures

The advantage to you of participating in CareCredit / Lending Club is that it allows you to begin your treatment or procedure immediately, and then pay for that care over a specified period of time with low monthly payments, that easily work within your budget.

If you have any additional questions about our extended payment plan, or would like an application, ask one of our team members, or call Hello Smile at: 805-380-5048.
