Payment Plans - Loans
PGH Smile Boutique currently does not offer an "in-house" payment plan. The only payment plan option we currently help offer is loans through Lending Point and line of credit from CareCredit.
We encourage all of our patients to apply for their treatment loan or line of credit with our prefer lenders prior to their initial visit if you wish to do monthly payments. All applications for initial pre-approval will only utilize a "soft inquiry" which does NOT impact on your credit score/report. Once pre-approved by our lender and if you wish to activate the loan, then a "hard inquiry" will be recorded on your credit report and therefor impact on your credit score.
