Our clients have the freedom to choose from different payment methods for their dental services. From cash to dental insurance, we want you to pick the one that best suits you.

In the following section, we provide a quick summary of the different payment methods available at Dogwood Dental Care in Carbondale, Illinois.

Credit Cards

Today, many people prefer paying with their credit cards over any other payment method. They are easy to use and a fast, convenient payment method. We accept the majority of credit cards to provide maximum convenience.


It is common for clients to pay for half of their treatment in cash and leave the remaining portion to be covered through insurance. If you choose this alternative, you should have it approved by your insurance provider before beginning your procedure.

Personal Checks

If you need to use a personal check or make a bank transfer, our office is happy to provide you with all the details required. These details may include the receiver’s name, account number, etc.


Our office accepts CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that is used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by dental insurance. CareCredit is subject to credit approval, but once you are accepted, you can use it again and again. CareCredit is a great option if you're on a budget, in that you can pay for your dental expenses in installments. Ask us about CareCredit today! Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions.

Medical insurance is a helpful method that will allow you to be covered for medical appointments, procedures and so on. You will need to verify with your insurance company to see what dental treatments are covered. Insurance companies cover many health expenses, avoiding you having to pay the cost out of your pocket. Dental insurance is also a type of medical coverage that provides coverage for certain dental expenses. It can be offered as a part of the overall medical indemnity or as a separate policy. To better assist you, our office in Carbondale, Illinois also processes treatment compensation through dental insurance.
