When it comes to costly dental procedures, it’s important to have various payment options available. In our constant endeavor to improve the patient experience, Smile Workshop has recently partnered with Sunbit to provide flexible payment options for your dental care. Sunbit is a monthly payment option that allows you to pay for your purchase over time choosing from a 3, 6, 12, 18, or even 24-month loan option instead of all at once.
The other great part is most people who apply are approved and the process is simple. First, visit our Payment Options page and select your specific Smile Workshop location. From there you will be taken to a short, no hard credit check application to see if you pre-qualify for our flexible dental payment options.
We are excited to be partnering with Sunbit because of the many benefits it will provide our patients. These are just a few of the many benefits that our flexible dental payment options provide:
1. No Hard Credit Checks.
Some companies who offer financing will say there is no hard credit check at the time of application and then when you are approved they run the hard credit check. That is not the case with our partner Sunbit. The soft credit check is throughout the entire process and there is no impact to your credit score for applying and getting approved with Sunbit.
A hard credit check is a type of inquiry in which an institution checks your credit to make a lending decision. This type of inquiry can have an adverse effect on your credit score, often by a few points. According to Credit Karma, a hard credit check will generally stay on your credit report for about two years.
Our financing partner Sunbit does not perform hard credit checks. Instead, Sunbit will perform a soft credit check, sometimes called a soft inquiry, when you apply to pre-qualify for financing. This type of credit check will not affect your credit score or appear on your credit reports, which is a huge benefit to our patients when it comes to dental payment options.
2. No Late Fees.
Sunbit’s flexible payment options allow you to pay over time for your dental care without any penalties for late payments. This allows our patients the freedom to pay for their dental services or procedures over time without the fear of the late fees that can typically be expected with financing or payment plans.
In addition to no late fees, Sunbit’s payment options also eliminate application fees, account opening fees, and prepayment penalties. These benefits allow our patients to get their dental care without worrying about paying in full; instead, they can utilize Sunbit’s flexible payment options without having to worry about a late fee or penalty.
3. 85% Approval Rate.
The question going through most patients’ minds when filling out a financing application is usually, “Will I get approved?” With our partnership with Sunbit, we’re able to ease that concern. Sunbit’s approval rate averages to 85%, meaning that the odds of approval are much higher than many other types of loan applications.
In the dental industry, we understand that dental care, whether it’s a service or procedure, is incredibly important. Your smile and your dental health are our top concerns, which is why we don’t want finances to get in the way of our patients receiving the care that they need. If you’re ready to get started, please visit our Payment Options page and select your specific Smile Workshop location to see if you pre-qualify.
