When considering any over-time payment option, it’s important to consider manageability of payments. You should also be aware that some payment plans are consumer credit so may charge additional fees, interest (if not paid within an interest free period), account keeping fees etc.
DentiCare is simple direct debit payment plan – not a credit product. Unlike credit or personal loan options, you won’t be charged interest on your treatment or go through complex credit checks or be asked to provide detailed financial information.
* When your doctor discusses your treatment plan, enquire about a DentiCare Payment Plan tailored to your treatment. * Together with your doctor decide on the payment plan details including the deposit, amount and frequency of payments. * Complete the simple, direct debit form. There’s no need for credit checks or detailed financial information. * You can begin your treatment straight away and your payments begin. Simple. No hassle, no fuss.
Direct debits can be processed anytime from midnight on the morning of your scheduled debit date. We suggest having the funds available in the account the night before any due date. Note: If your direct debit date falls on a public holiday or the weekend, it will be processed the next business day. If for any reason a debit does not occur on a scheduled date, please leave funds available until the payment is debited.
