Patient Information » Payment Options
All treatment is offered on a private basis, written quotations are given as part of your Personal Report and Treatment Plan before treatment is started.
We offer many ways to pay for treatment with discounts available for payment in advance for whole treatment plans. We also offer interest free finance and low cost payment plans.
At Gentle Dentistry we do not want funding dental treatment to be a barrier. Our staff will be happy to discuss any of the payment options with you.

How much will I pay?
With our 0% facility you pay the cost of your dental treatment - no more and no less. Interest-free means just that!

Your dentist or designated members of the practice team will be able to go through the various terms with you and agree the most suitable repayment period.
How do I apply?
Once you have agreed on your course of treatment there is a simple one page form to complete. We make the credit application on your behalf and approval is normally obtained within a couple of hours. As soon as this has been approved you’ll receive written confirmation from the credit provider. Simple as that!
Who is the credit provider?
We’re working with one of the most respected credit providers in the business. Ask our team for details.
What happens if my treatment costs more than planned for?

How often can I use the facility?
You can apply for a payment plan for each course of treatment, subject to the usual credit application.
