At Dental Pods we understand that the costs of private dental treatment can be expensive. We recognise that paying for dental treatment can be expensive and may even deter you from having the necessary treatment done. To ensure that our patients have access to affordable dental care, we offer interest free finance on all treatments. Subject to your eligibility, the cost of your dental treatment can be spread over monthly payments at a rate which is affordable for you. Finance is provided through Hitachi Capital Finance.
Am I Eligible
To be considered for finance you must meet the following requirements:
- Be 18 or over;
- Be in permanent paid employment; or retired and receiving a pension; or be a house person with a partner in permanent employment; or be self-employed;
- Be a resident of the UK for a minimum of 12 months;
- Be able to provide proof of address and proof of signature;
- Agree to make payments by direct debit;
- Be purchasing the treatment for personal use rather than business use.
Permanent paid employment is classed as an occupation where you are working more than 16 hours per week; this also includes someone who is in receipt of permanent pension or personal benefit, e.g. an invalidity or incapacity benefit.
