Better treatment plan acceptance . . . Better payment integration . . . Better Together

When you are looking for ways to improve the systems in the office, you are looking for better efficiency, more consistency, and more effectiveness because you need to see results.I use all of the Dentrix eServices because they excel in all of these areas. My team runs a very tight ship because everything revolves around the practice management software; nothing is jimmy-rigged together. This is why I am very excited about this announcement from Dentrix and its new integration with Citi Health Card patient financing.

We have been offering Citi Health Card and CareCredit for patient financing, but it is one of our office’s systems that isn’t as streamlined and efficient as I want it to be. This new integration with Dentrix and Citi Health Card is exactly what our office needs.



Convincing patients of the need for treatment can be only half the battle. Often, the next common obstacle to obtaining treatment plan acceptance is the guarantor’s ability to pay for the treatment. Fortunately for Dentrix users, providing patient financing just got easier so more patients can say "yes" to treatment.
The Citi Health Card, with a proven history of helping providers improve treatment plan acceptance, is now integrated with Dentrix to simplify the application process, streamline payment posting and make patient financing more affordable for patients and providers.
Now when a patient requires financing, the application can be submitted with less effort, as many of the fields are prepopulated with information from Dentrix. Within minutes—or even seconds—of submitting a completed form, an electronic response tells you if the patient is approved and reports the patient’s approved credit limit, allowing you to complete the treatment plan proposal and begin scheduling.
Another benefit of the integration is automatic payment posting to the Dentrix Ledger. The charges for the treatment, up to the amount of the approved credit, can be applied to the patient account with the click of a button, eliminating manual entry and the possibility of keypunch errors.

Best of all, the Citi Health Card program provides the most flexible and affordable patient financing available. You can offer no-interest options for six, 12, 18 and 24 months or budget payment plans that fit nearly any income. And since Citi Health Card merchant fees are lower compared to industry averages , patient financing won’t compromise your practice’s profitability.
