Everyone has a budget they need to keep. Here at Lake County Family Dental Care, we want to make it as easy as possible to stay within your budget.
Affordable Preventative Care
The single best way to keep your dental costs down is to maintain regular preventative care. Getting your teeth professionally cleaned can prevent expensive treatments from becoming necessary. Even if you were to get a cavity, regular care will help us catch it sooner. A simple filling is much more affordable than a dental crown; but if the cavity goes too long without detection there is no way to prevent the more invasive treatment. In order to facilitate the availability of care, we’ve put our preventative treatments at a lower cost scale than other procedures, making it more affordable for you.
Dealing with Dental Fear
We understand that many patients avoid getting dental care because of dental anxiety. Dr. Potts is sympathetic toward fearful patients. If you’ve avoided dental care because of fear, we can put your mind at ease. Know you will not be judged or lectured. Instead, your care will be done in a sensitive, gentle manner.

Affordable Payment Plans
We accept assignment of benefits. We’re also willing for you to pay up front and give you the assignment of benefits. For those who can’t pay up front, we offer payment plans. We even have a no-interest payment plan available for up to twelve months.
Using Phased Treatment
Another way to make dental care more affordable is with phased treatments. For instance, if you need to replace six teeth, but cannot afford six dental implants right away, you could get an implant supported bridge while you save up for the other implants. This would allow you to do the implants two at a time, easing the financial burden.
Our office is happy to answer any of your financial questions. If you’d like to see if you’re a candidate for a specific procedure or you need a second opinion, we offer complimentary consultations in those cases. You can meet with the dental assistant to ask any initial questions and then get about ten to fifteen minutes of Dr. Potts’ time for him to look at your case and answer your questions. You may call our office to schedule an appointment, or if you prefer you may click here to request an appointment online.
