Your family’s dental health is important to us at Sunshine Pediatric Dentistry. One of our goals is to make your dental care as affordable as possible. Please don’t neglect necessary treatments because you are worried about paying for them! We accept credit and debit cards and offer a cash discount. We also offer a number of other ways to pay for your dental treatments and are proud to offer a 15% discount to our military families.

Insurance & Medicaid

We strive to be insurance friendly. We will check to verify that your insurance provider is accepted at our office. Once eligibility has been established, we file claims for you electronically and help you maximize your dental coverage. It’s important that you keep us up-to-date on any changes in your insurance provider or coverage. We also accept Medicaid and can answer questions about what services your program covers.


We accept CareCredit, which is a healthcare credit card. You apply on the CareCredit website. Credit approval is determined quickly, and you can use it over and over again at a variety of different providers to pay for your healthcare needs. The CareCredit website explains the terms and different promotions available.

In-House Financing

If you don’t have dental insurance, don’t worry. We can still make paying for your dental care affordable. With our in-house financing, we can spread payments out over time to make it more manageable for you. Each case is handled individually so contact our office to discuss your specific needs.

Know What to Expect & Plan Ahead

Paying for dental care is easier when you know what routine services and treatments to expect. Our Sunshine Dental Treatment Packages provide a list of recommended services tailored to the age of your child. Regular preventive care is less expensive than correcting serious oral health problems down the road. We look forward to seeing you soon in our Alamo Heights, San Antonio office.
