A recent lawsuit between retail merchants, MasterCard, and Visa resulted in the decision that stores accepting financial giants’ credit cards are required to charge customers a credit card fee in addition to their total. Now, every time people use a credit card, they are required to pay the credit card company a service fee, which could range from 1.5 to 3 percent of the total amount.
At our office, we understand that this decision has made it extremely inconvenient and problematic for many, which is why our team at Smiles Dental has decided against charging our patients additional fees when they pay for their dental treatment with a credit card. We are committed to our patients and we strive to provide affordable dental care that helps maintain and improve smiles. As a patient of our practice, you can trust that you are our top priority. Because we care about you, your family, and your smiles, we are happy to only charge you what is necessary—nothing more.
