Thirty years ago, California-based CareCredit and its healthcare credit card were founded on a simple idea: Everyone deserves a smile. The company’s founders recognized that patients needed a way to help pay for dental implants so they could comfortably enjoy eating and smiling. CareCredit was born and the brand has since evolved to become a leading provider of patient financing to consumers for hearing, vision, dental, and veterinary healthcare procedures and services.

The CareCredit credit card is a flexible payment option available at more than 200,000 locations across the United States, including veterinary, cosmetic, hearing health, dental and vision practices, as well as health-focused retailers such as LensCrafters, Rite-Aid and Bowflex. With nearly $70 billion of care financed since 1987, CareCredit has helped millions of people with everything from their family’s dental and hearing health to veterinary care for their pets.
