Payment Options

There are several methods of payment that can be used for our dental services.  Many patients may feel undecided about undergoing dental treatments because of the costs.  Our office in Tucson makes sure that everyone is informed about all of the payment options available. Among these are payments in cash, credit cards, personal checks, insurance and Care Credit.

Please refer to our guide about the payment methods available at Santa Cruz River Dental in Tucson.

Cash and Personal Checks

Paying with cash is one of the most common and reliable ways to cover dental care costs. Since cash payments can be faster and more convenient, many of our patients opt for this method.

We also accept personal checks at our dental office. Our staff is happy to provide you with any information you may need to complete the check accurately.

Credit Cards

Credit cards are another common approved method of payment at our office. We accept various types of credit cards, such as Visa and Mastercard. For a complete list of accepted types or to verify your card, contact our team directly.


We accept dental insurance, however, it is highly suggested that patients give us a call to verify if we work with your insurance type as well as the services that are covered.

It is important to make sure your insurance plan is currently active, as some policies go into effect some time after approval. It would also be beneficial if patients call their insurance company beforehand as well, to let them know they will be attending our office for their dental services.

Additionally,  our office also offers Care Credit. Care Credit is a service that covers the amount of your treatment and offers you flexible payment options. If interested, ask us for more information.   


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.
