At University Place Dental in Carbondale, Illinois, we offer various payment methods to give you options that work best for you. We accept cash, personal checks and debit or credit cards, but unfortunately, we do not accept Medicaid. Please contact our office at 618-549-0208 if you have any questions.
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 because 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.

Dental Savings Plan
Dental savings plans are a transparent alternative to traditional dental insurance that provides uninsured patients access to affordable comprehensive oral care. With a membership program, patients pay an annual subscription fee in return for preventive care, members-only advantages, and discounts on other treatments. Without the hassles of deductibles and waiting periods, these programs are easy to understand and savings begin the minute patients join.
