How can Direct Dental Finance benefit You? Affordable Dentistry Direct Dental Finance makes expensive treatments affordable and accessible to all patients allowing them to break down the treatment into ‘bite-sized’ monthly instalments so they can choose the treatment they desire rather than the treatment they can afford.

Guaranteed practice income Payment will be received 3 working days after the end of the mandatory customer withdrawal period* meaning improved, predictable cash flow.

More payment options Direct Dental Finance will give you the ability to offer patients a wider choice of payment options, flexible enough to suit everyone’s budget

Increased practice income Finance is a great way to help increase your practice income. By allowing patients to break down the cost it offers them the option to consider expensive treatments. Treatment packages can be designed so that the patient can be offered ongoing treatment plans.

Marketing opportunities Advertising finance is a proven way of increasing patient enquiries to a practice.


How Direct Dental Finance works for You? We are confident that our rates are the most competitive within our market and flexible enough without being complicated. We have four comprehensive facilities that are carefully designed to be beneficial to your practice whilst offering an excellent deal to your patient. • Interest-Free Credit • Interest-Bearing Credit • Countdown Interest-Bearing Credit (Buy Now Pay Later)

0% Interest Free Credit Interest-Free Credit is an extremely effective sales and marketing tool and when used in advertising is a great way to encourage enquiries and new patients to your practice. With Interest-Free Credit, as the patient is not paying any interest charges the cost is borne by the practice. A subsidy is charged at a percentage calculated on the patient’s borrowing amount. These subsidies will vary depending on the loan amount and the term of the agreement. Interest-Free Credit is available on balances of £500 - £50,000, from 6 months to 3 years, flexible enough to suit everyone’s budget and a variety of treatments.


Interest-Bearing Credit The most cost effective form of finance for your practice. Our Interest-Bearing Credit products have an APR that is lower than most major credit cards and offers an excellent option to the patient. Interest-Bearing Credit is used when the subsidy charged to the practice for Interest-Free Credit becomes financially unviable. With Interest-Bearing Credit the patient is paying a small interest charge so there is very little or even no cost to the practice. Longer repayment periods are available. Cheaper than most major credit cards and the practice saves on the commission charged by the credit card company. Available on balances of ÂŁ500 - ÂŁ50,000, from 12 months to 5 years, flexible enough to suit everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget.


Countdown Interest-Bearing Credit (Buy Now Pay Later) Buy Now Pay Later (BNPL) is a product whereby your customer can benefit from a “payment holiday” for a period of up to 6 months. The patient will receive up to 6 months to repay the loan free from interest charges before reverting to a competitive APR for 24 months after the Interest-Free period has expired. This is an effective way for patients to take up finance and use the deferral period to save the money to settle the agreement whilst commencing treatment.

Simple on-line credit applications The finance on-line process is quick and easy. Creditmaster2 is an on-line credit application system that takes away the need for complicated and time consuming form filling. The on-line process takes minutes and your patient’s application can be accepted immediately. Once the application has been accepted the patient can commence treatment and you will receive payment, directly into the practice bank account via BACS.

We can arrange a visit at your convenience to talk you through the various options and how they can be used to benefit your practice. A Consumer Credit Licence (CCL) is a legal requirement to enable you to offer finance to your patients. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t already have your CCL, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no need to worry, we will help you with every step of the application process. Once your finance facility is set up we will provide full training for your staff, ongoing support, literature for your patients and advice on credit advertising. * EU law dictates customers have 14 days to withdraw from the agreement, meaning the treatment should not be performed until this expires.
