Tip Tuesday: The Hidden Benefits of Third-Party Financing

finances graphic

Increasing case acceptance is essential to any dental practice’s success. Third-party financing can be a valuable resource for your patients in moving forward with treatment and an effective tool for any dental practice.

The benefits of using third-party financing for a dental practice are simple:

1. Funds become available quickly.

2. The dental team is not managing outstanding balances and operating as a collection agency.

3. Satisfied patients can afford treatment because you have provided them with another option.

The downside for an office is that patients cannot qualify, and there is often a nominal fee associated with using that service.

Maximizing your third-party financing options includes not only being able to offer interest-free plans but understanding the benefits of offering extended interest plans to your patients. Extended interest plans often come with a lower percentage fee for an office to provide that option compared to traditional interest-free plans.

Schedule training with your third-party financing partners like CareCredit, Wells Fargo Patient Financing, Proceed Finance, Dext, Lending Tree, etc. (FYI, there are many options), to understand the patient tools that they offer and the extent of their plans so that you can make a decision that is best for your patients and will benefit your practice.

Increasing case acceptance can be impacted by the financial options that you offer. Knowing what is available and communicating with your patients about this can be instrumental in improving your patient experience and improving your case acceptance.
