Here at elleven Dental we have created a whole range of different payment options so that finance doesn’t have to be a reason for putting off achieving the smile of your dreams. We talk to elleven’s Treatment Coordinator, Kirsty Rodger, to find out what your options are.
Kirsty Rodger is elleven Dental’s Treatment Coordinator, so she speaks with all our patients during the process of developing a treatment plan.
Of course, the main focus of the treatment plan is how to achieve the desired look in the way that best suits the patient. However, as Kirsty points out, ensuring the treatment plan suits the patient also means finding the right payment plan for the patient too.
“We really are flexible,” Kirsty says, “and we always try to find something that works for each of our patients.”
What are the finance options for our orthodontic treatments?
Orthodontic treatments can require a big investment of time and money – but we don’t want this to put patients off taking the first steps towards getting the smile they want.
It’s for this reason elleven Dental has developed a number of different finance options from which patients are free to choose.
1. Pay all upfront.
If you prefer to pay the full amount for the treatment plan in advance of your treatment, we will reward you with a small discount of five percent off the total cost of your treatment plan.
2. Pay 50/50
We also offer the option of paying half of the treatment costs upfront. You then pay the balance six months into your treatment.
If you like the idea of paying half upfront, half later we are happy to discuss other monthly spreads. For example: half upfront, half four months into treatment. Or half upfront, half eight months into treatment.
Kirsty recommends you simply discuss your preferred option with the Elleven team during your treatment plan consultation.
3. Choose an External Finance Plan over 36 Months
elleven works with a third-party finance specialist to enable our patients to pay over 36 months. You will pay interest on the treatment cost if you choose this option, but it is set relatively low at just 9.9 percent.
Kirsty explains, “This is quite popular with our patients and the best thing about it is it’s so easy to set up.”
4. Choose elleven’s In-house Finance
elleven also uses another method for spreading the cost of your treatments: our very own in-house finance.
Kirsty says, “It’s amazing! You can spread the cost of treatment out over the course of your treatment – it’s so easy. There are no credit checks; a direct debit just goes out of your bank account on the first of every month. As long as the treatment is paid in full before the braces are removed, we’re absolutely happy.”
With this finance option, you don’t pay any interest. You simply pay a sizeable deposit before treatment begins and then split the remaining balance over the next ten or twelve months interest-free.
Choosing the right payment option for you
As with all the treatment decisions you will make when you come to elleven Dental for treatment, the elleven Dental team are always on hand to answer any questions you may have and to offer advice.
The ultimate decisions about how you wish to proceed are always left to you, but we will always try to be as flexible as we need to be to accommodate your preferences.
It’s important to note that if the period over which you’re receiving treatment extends, you won’t need to worry about further payments because elleven Dental’s treatment plans are all-inclusive.
