Your First Visit at Balcones Family Dental

Your first visit to our office is not only about our team getting to know your oral health but also about getting to know you! At Balcones Family Dental, we encourage patients to ask questions and express concerns. A first visit typically includes a comprehensive dental exam that may include X-rays. After the exam, one of our dentists will talk with you about the findings, and together, you can create a healthy, effective treatment plan that best meets your dental needs!

Payment Options

We want to remove financial barriers so our patients can get the dental treatment they need when they need it. At Balcones Family Dental, we are a fee-for-service practice. However, we accept a variety of payment options, including cash, checks, debit, and most major credit cards, along with Health Savings and Flexible Spending plans. If you’d like to use dental insurance, we encourage you to contact us about your dental insurance plan so we can help you make the most of your benefits.

Financing Options

For patients in need of more extensive treatment or who need to extend payment over several weeks, we’re happy to share that our office also has financing options available. Our financing options include in-house financing, Lending Point, and CareCredit®.


CareCredit offers flexible payment plans that can be used to split dental costs into smaller monthly payments. These plans can be used to finance everything from unexpected dental emergencies to cosmetic dental services, and they accrue little to no interest when payments are made on time. Having a budget-friendly payment plan can be the difference between patients receiving the care they need and putting off treatment indefinitely, so we are happy to accept CareCredit. Credit decisions are typically made within minutes, so you can apply and get approved for a payment plan today!
