Financial Information

At MMJ DDS we try to maximize your dental benefits no matter who your employer is. Our team dedicates hundreds of hours each month trying to work with dental benefit companies to try and figure out what coverage our patients have and what they do not have. Some companies are easier than others to discover this information. Delta Dental of Michigan plans cover a majority of our current patients and we have a good working relationship with them. In any case let us know what coverage you have and we will work with you to help you obtain the highest benefit for your dental healthcare. Please let us know if your coverage changes or if your spouse or partner gains dental coverage. This may significantly change your out of pocket expenses.

We also accept the following payment options:

  • Visa
  • Mastercard
  • American Express
  • Discover

Finance Your Dentistry with CareCredit

If you’re considering advanced options like cosmetic dentistry, CareCredit can help you finance your dentistry over time.

CareCredit is a healthcare credit card that allows you to make monthly payments on dental and health treatments. Some of their programs even mean interest-free payments for you.

The online application process is simple, and decisions typically take only minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Our office uses digital radiography for the ease and comfort of our patients. Digital x-rays are also safer and better for the environment compared to traditional films. They emit far less radiation, and because no chemicals are used, they are considered a greener option.

These digital images appear quickly without the use of a dark room, which means less waiting. They are also easier to store electronically. Your dentist is able to share these images with you, explain your oral health issues, and this helps you make informed choices for your smile.

X-rays allow us to see parts of your teeth that are under the gum tissue and in the bone. It is very important for us to monitor those areas as well to help you maintain optimum oral hygiene. Your dentist can also use the images to treat dental problems and plan treatments with accuracy.

In our Lansing, MI dental office, we like to refer to technologies that are patient-friendly, safer, and allow for the best possible outcomes for our patients.
