What is interest free finance for dental treatment?
We always consider the needs of our patients, so we have set up interest free finance, one of the many reasons most of our patients believe we are the best dentist in Southampton.
Interest free finance is when you spread the cost of the dental treatment without any additional cost for multiple months – most of the times up to 10 months. There is no deposit needed and you only pay back the very same amount, 0% finance is just that, you pay no interest on the amount.
At Ferry Dental Centre in Southampton using a financing plan is a popular option for patients as it allows you to spread the cost of your treatment over an agreed period that fits within your budget.
For treatments above £500, you will be able to apply for interest free finance. You will also need to be over the age of 18, but not necessarily a current patient at the practice.
Finance is provided to us by Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance.
How do you provide interest free finance for dental treatment? How does it work?
With Hitachi Finance at Ferry Dental Centre in Southampton, we send you an invitation and you fill the application online on the website of Hitachi Capital Consumer Finance. You give them your details; we only need your name, the amount and your email address, we have no access to your personal details. Hitachi will do a credit check that may leave a footprint – it may have an impact on your credit score (it is all explained prior to filling the on-line application)
This is a form of loan without interest that you payback to Hitachi, we receive the full amount from Hitachi Finance after a few weeks and you repay directly to Hitachi Finance.
