Choose the Way You Want to Pay

At Jacksonville, a point is made to exceed your expectations, not your budget. With quality care at affordable rates, everyone in your family can get the dental care they need and deserve. So when you walk out the door, you’ll leave with a great big smile, not a great big bill.

And while giving you lots of payment choices is important, there’s one choice you should never have to make: deciding between the dental care you need and the dental care you can afford. So the staff at Jacksonville sits down with you to figure out which payment option and plan make sense for you for the dental services you need.

To make things even easier for you, Jacksonville offers plenty of ways to pay, including VISA®, MasterCard®, Discover®, and American Express®.

And Jacksonville now offers an even more convenient way to make payments through Online Bill Pay.
