COSTA MESA, Calif. – [May 18, 2021] – CareCredit, a Synchrony (NYSE:SYF) solution and a leading provider of promotional financing for patients, is now integrated into Planet DDS Denticon practice management software. The new integration is designed to help practice teams save time, increase productivity and provide patients with a financing option in order to make it easier for them to move forward with recommended treatment.
The integration features CareCredit’s Quickscreen®, which enables teams to easily identify patients who are pre-approved or that already have an existing CareCredit credit card — even before they visit the office. Knowing who is likely to be approved for CareCredit and who already has a card, can help make the financial conversation easier. Additionally, practices can now process transactions directly from the Patient Account Screen and have them automatically post back to the ledger, helping to save time and minimize human error. Helping patients apply for CareCredit is also easier. When a patient wants to apply, the patient information is automatically transferred to the CareCredit application, so all the team has to do is complete a few fields of information from the patient and click “submit” to receive a credit decision within seconds.
“Providing solutions that can help practices streamline processes, enhance productivity and help patients move forward with care, is imperative — especially in today’s environment” said Doug Hammond, SVP & GM of CareCredit. “CareCredit’s integration into Denticon practice management software is an important part of our ongoing commitment to respond to the needs of the dental community by giving practices easy access to a financing solution that helps remove barriers to recommended care.”
“A direct integration with CareCredit will give our clients’ patients additional financing options, opening up opportunities for them to receive needed care that they may have declined otherwise.” said Eric Giesecke, CEO of Denticon. “Denticon users will be able to check patients’ CareCredit status within Denticon and submit applications to receive an immediate credit decision. We’re very excited about what this new partnership will bring to our clients and to their patients.”
