Your questions answered!
We’ve tried to answer the most commonly asked questions here, but if there’s anything else you’d like to know, please speak to a member of the team
1. Who can benefit?
Just about anyone over the age of 18. You don’t have to belong to a membership plan and you don’t have to be a regular visitor at this practice.
Access to these facilities will be subject to an online credit application.
2. What can I use it for?
You can use our finance options for just about any treatment we provide, although they’re particularly suited to cosmetic, restorative, orthodontic and dental implant treatments. Please ask a member of the team for more details.
3. What’s the minimum and maximum I can finance?
Our range of finance facilities covers any treatment which costs over £350 and up to a maximum of £50,000.
4. How do I make the repayments?
Much like any other finance facilities, you repay them in affordable monthly payments over an agreed term. These payments are collected by Direct Debit.
5. How much will I pay?
With the interest-free facilities, you pay the cost of your treatment – no more, no less. In terms of the interest-bearing facilities, there will be an interest element which will be made clear to you at the outset. In both instances, we provide you with a quotation that shows the monthly payment and any interest payable over the term of the loan. There are no hidden costs and an upfront deposit isn’t always necessary.
6. What are the repayment terms?
Designated members of the practice team will be able to go through the various terms with you and agree the repayment period that works best for you.
7. How do I apply?
Once your treatment plan and costs have been agreed and you’ve decided which finance facility best suits you, you’ll be able to complete an easy-to-use online credit application.
8. How long does approval take?
The application takes just a few minutes to complete and the decision is given instantly. If your application is approved, we can schedule treatment following the mandatory 14-day ‘cooling-off’ period.
9. Who is the credit provider?
The practice and Medenta Finance Ltd are credit brokers and Hitachi Capital (UK) PLC is our credit provider.
10. What if the cost of treatment changes?
We will let you know as soon as the situation arises. Should treatment costs increase, you can, depending on the amount, choose to have an additional finance option to cover the extra costs. If costs decrease, the remaining balance of your finance will be reviewed by the credit provider and options for reducing your payments or terms will be discussed.
11. How often can I use the facility?
You can apply for finance for each course of treatment, subject to the usual credit check.
