Dental treatment can be expensive. Gone are the days where a patient is given a bill for treatment and expected to pay the full amount up front. With the rising costs of living and tight family budgets, it is sometimes hard to set aside finances for oral health care. Thankfully, Kind Care Dentistry offers several flexible options for payment.
Our practice accepts a majority of insurances and discount plans. For those without insurance, we offer our in-house savings plan to make the costs of treatment even more affordable. We also offer ways for the patient to finance the treatment over time by working with revolutionary new companies that work for the patient and for us. No matter what plans you may have, the financial burden of paying upfront can be lessened by our specially designed financing options.
If you decide to pay for your treatment upfront, you will receive a 5% discount off your whole treatment cost.
Flexible financing allows you to make affordable monthly payments on major healthcare procedures that previously may have seemed too cost prohibitive. With CareCredit, you can start your procedure today! CareCredit is the nation’s leading patient payment program that allows you to finance 100% of your dental care with NO money down, NO interest, no upfront costs, no annual fees, and no pre-payment penalties. CareCredit can be used by the entire family for ongoing treatment without having to reapply. It also offers a comprehensive range of plan options. It only takes a few minutes to apply for CareCredit.

Dr. Patel and her staff want you to get the most out of your dental insurance benefits. That’s why we accept most PPO insurance plans and some Medicare benefits, too. Our office is in-network with several popular providers in the area including:
If Dr. Patel is not in-network with your dental insurance in Orange Park, or if you do not have dental coverage, please don’t let that be an obstacle to your oral health care. As mentioned above, we have financing options, and we are willing to work with you to ensure that you and your family receive the services you need to have a healthy and beautiful smile.
One of the best things you can do to maintain good oral health—and one that is covered between 80 to 100 percent by almost all dental insurance—is schedule dental checkups at least every six months. Dentistry is actually designed to prevent dental problems. But the protocol works only if you show up for your regular dental cleanings and examinations.
At these appointments, your teeth are cleaned and Dr. Patel carefully examines the condition of each tooth as well as your gum tissue. We’ll also take annual digital X-rays to spot trouble that might be happening below the surface of a tooth or below the gum line.
If the dentist finds a problem, then there is a restorative dentistry procedure that can rebuild or replace your tooth. In addition to common services such as fillings and dental crowns, Dr. Patel also offers root canals, wisdom tooth extractions, and dentures and implant retained dentures.
