We Work Hard to Make Dentistry Affordable

At The Happy Tooth, our priority is to extend the quality and affordable dental care to our patients.

As a result, we offer a variety of insurance and financing options, and you can remain in-network with more dental insurance companies than most other providers in the community. In an effort to keep our fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we extend several options to you, for you and your family.

Dental Insurance Carriers We Accept

The Happy Tooth is committed to making your insurance work for you. Orthodontic and dental insurance companies have many rules and regulations, and we understand how complex it can seem. You can count on our staff to help when it comes to dealing with filing all necessary papers and submitting claims. We'll help by calling your insurance company to verify your benefits.

We also accept assignment of your benefits, depending on the rules of your insurance company, making it simpler to apply for your coverage. Most of all, we're committed to helping you receive your full benefits. But please remember, just as the insurance company is responsible to you, the patient, you are responsible to us at The Happy Tooth.

  • Aetna

Financing Options

Even with insurance, dental and orthodontic treatment can be costly. But we believe financial consideration should not be a roadblock to obtaining beautiful smiles. Sound dental and orthodontic treatment is one of the best investments you can make for you and your family.

Dentistry is a great investment for you and your family, and financial consideration should not be an obstacle to obtain beautiful smiles. We have several financing options, and during your first visit, we will review them to see what best suits your needs. Patients of The Happy Tooth can even take advantage of discounts by referring siblings and/or paying in full at the beginning of treatment. Be sure to ask about what discounts you may be eligible for when you when visit our office.

Flexible Monthly Payment Option

The Happy Tooth accepts CareCredit as a form of payment for services rendered, for those who qualify. CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that makes care possible today — especially for families who do not have dental insurance. The application process is simple and can be done in our office, with the assistance of a staff member. Upon approval, the program allows you to finance 100% of your dental care with NO money down, NO interest, NO annual fees and NO prepayment penalties. This is a great option for dental and orthodontic care! CareCredit is also accepted by providers in the health, beauty and wellness industries –- including veterinarians!

Discount Plan (Prodis Health)

The Happy Tooth is part of the Prodis Health Network, a professional discount plan. For a small yearly fee, a family of five can enjoy up to a 20% discount on all dental procedures! With numerous plans to choose from, Prodis Health Network is a great option for individuals or families who do not have dental insurance.

In-house Financing (Orthodontics Only)

We do extend in-house financing to our orthodontic patients. After a down payment, you can pay the balance off over time, as long as the balance is paid in full at least three months prior to the end of your treatment. Automatic withdrawal from a checking or savings account is also provided for those who qualify.
