How do I get dental care if I can’t afford it?

Everyone is recommended to visit the dentist regularly, regardless of their age, location, or lifestyle. Regular dental visits can help your dentist spot potential and developing problems early before they cause you symptoms and have serious consequences for your long-term dental health. Early diagnosis and treatment can also help you to avoid intensive and expensive dental treatments.


Dental procedures can vary considerably in cost, especially if you don’t have dental insurance and are paying out of pocket. If you don’t have the available cash for the check-ups or treatment that you need, it can be tempting to avoid booking them at all. Fortunately, you don’t have to compromise on the dental care that you need and deserve.


At Above & Beyond Dental, we understand the importance of your oral health and want to make it possible for everyone to enjoy affordable dental care in Bedford, TX. As a result, we offer a wide range of payment options for dental care.


Cash and Credit Cards

Not only do we accept cash, we also accept all major credit cards including Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover.



We are delighted to accept CareCredit. CareCredit is a credit card that is used exclusively for payment for healthcare services including dental care. When you choose CareCredit, you can benefit from an interest-free payment plan, if paid in full within 6, 12, 18 or 24 months on purchases. Interest is charged to your account from the purchase date if the promotional balance, including charges, isn’t paid in full or is paid late.


Dental Insurance

Dental insurance is a great way to cover the cost of any treatment that you know you are going to need, and often, many treatments that are unexpected. After all, while some dental issues can be detected fairly early, others, such as accidents and injuries, can happen at any time. Often, when they do occur, it is at the least convenient time. We are pleased to accept a wide range of dental insurance providers including:

  • Cigna

  • United Healthcare

  • MetLife

  • Ameritas

  • Delta Dental

  • Lincoln Financial Group

  • Connection Dental

  • Anthem

  • GEHA


Every policy is different, and you will need to check with your provider what treatments and procedures are covered.


Payment Plans

If you don’t have insurance, credit cards, or CareCredit, there is another option. We operate affordable payment plans that allow you to spread the cost of your dental care over a number of months. Simply make the necessary repayment each month, rather than pay a larger one-off cost. If you are interested in covering the cost of your dental care using a payment plan, you’ll need to speak to our team to submit an application.
