Payment Options

At Fairview Dental Care, we want to make sure that every aspect of your visit is as smooth and comfortable as possible. Our office provides several payment methods for our dental services.

Below is a quick overview of all the different methods of payment available at Fairview Dental Care:

Credit Cards, Cash & Personal Checks

Because of the immediate availability of Cash and Credit Cards, our practice accepts both as methods of payment. Personal checks as payment for our dental services are always welcome. Our staff will help you writing the check, so please seek them out and ask them any questions you may have. Lastly, we accept multiple credit cards, including Visa and Mastercard. For a complete list of the credit cards we accept, or if you are unsure if we accept your card, please call our office at 573-445-5811 and we will be glad to verify that information.


Our office is delighted in being able to accept medical and dental insurance as payment for our services. Before going to your appointment, it is advised to call your insurance company to make sure what dental coverage your plan has. Or, if you have additional dental insurance, you may call us to verify if we accept this company.

Care Credit

Along with the other methods of payment listed, Fairview Dental Care offers Care Credit as part of our dental payment services. This method of payment allows you to pay in flexible monthly installments. 


Our office accepts CareCredit, a healthcare credit card that is used to pay for out-of-pocket expenses not covered by dental insurance. CareCredit is subject to credit approval, but once you are accepted, you can use it again and again. CareCredit is a great option if you're on a budget, in that you can pay for your dental expenses in installments. Ask us about CareCredit today! Applying is easy, and we are here to answer any questions.

Apply for CareCredit


There are various dental insurance plans today and many of the plans fully cover or partially cover your basic dental work including teeth cleanings, fillings, check-ups and even necessary dental surgery.

It is important that you verify with your insurance if we are an accepted provider to use through your dental insurance. Since dental plans can vary in terms of services covered and accepted providers, it is important you talk to your insurance to understand your plan and prepare for your visit with us. Keep in mind that if your dental insurance only covers part of your services, you will have a balance remaining for which you can pay through our other payment options available. If you are paying your dental services through your insurance, please make sure to bring your insurance card and a form of ID the day of your visit.
