How can we help you?

We encourage patients to come to us with questions about their treatment, our dental office, or what to expect when they come to Roots Dental. Our entire team is committed to helping you feel confident in the decisions you make regarding your oral health.

Below, you will find some of the most common questions that patients have. If you don't see yours listed, just give us a call. We are always happy to help.


We never want finances to stand between you and a healthy, comfortable smile. That is why we make dental care affordable with payment plans that meet the needs of the families in our community.

We offer two different payment plans and work with a wide variety of insurance companies.

CareCredit Patient Financing

CareCredit is like a credit card. It is a revolving account that you can use for medical, dental cosmetic, vision, and veterinary care.

You must choose a participating provider, like our practice, to use CareCredit. CareCredit plans offer both long-term and interest-free payment options so that you can make a choice that works well for you.

In-House Financing

We also offer in-house financing for patients who qualify. Rather than using an outside company, we will break the cost of your treatment into monthly payments that fit your budget. To learn more about this, contact our office. We can help you get started.

It is helpful to know the cost of your treatment before applying so that you have an idea of what your monthly payments will be.

You can learn more by visiting our financial page or by calling our Portland dental office. We are here to help and look forward to providing solutions that will work well for you and your family.
