The Center for Pediatric Dentistry

Fees and insurance


How do I pay for my dental care?

The Center for Pediatric Dentistry operates on a fee-for-service basis. We do not provide free care or sliding-scale fees. Payment for your dental treatment is due at each appointment. We accept cash, personal check, Medicaid ProviderOne, MasterCard, Visa, Discover or Citi Health Card as payment options.

The Citi Health Card offers no-interest payment plans, low monthly payments and an easy application process that allows for treatment to begin immediately upon credit approval. Applications for the Citi Health Card can be done in our office or by phone.

To apply by phone, please call: 1-866-843-2330.
