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 through Lending Point loans. If you already have a CareCredit account, we can accept that as well, but we only offer repayment plans with interests. We DO NOT offer zero-interest options with CareCredit at this time due to their high transaction fees.
PGH Smile Boutique has partnered with Lending Point (third-party loan financing) that has lend millions of dollars in the United States to patients for their health care and cosmetic procedure needs. Our patients may take advantage of utilizing monthly payments for their treatments with a loan approved through Lending Point.
We encourage all of our patients to apply for their treatment loan with Lending Point below prior to their initial visit. 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 proceed with the loan, then a "hard inquiry" will be recorded on your credit report and therefor impact on your credit score.
