Thirty years ago, CareCreditwas founded on a simple idea: Everyone deserves a smile.
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 evolved to be a leading
provider of promotional financing to consumers for 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.
Along with advances in care, the CareCredit health, wellness and personal care credit
card has expanded its breadth of services and reach during the last 30 years:
- More than 24 million accounts opened since inception.
- More than 12,000 people apply for a CareCredit card nearly every day to help pay for care.
- A new cardholder is approved, on average, every 14 seconds.
- On average, more than 822,000 card acceptance locator searches on carecredit.com every month via desktop and mobile.
- More than two-thirds of all dental practices and more than 7 out of 10 veterinary practices in the nation accept CareCredit.
“We started so we could help patients move forward with care,” said Dave Fasoli, CEO,
CareCredit. “It’s still what keeps us moving forward after 30 years. We’re proud of the
fact that we’ve continued to reliably serve healthcare providers and their patients and
clients through many changes in the healthcare environment. We help thousands of
people every day and millions of people every year. Our focus remains offering our
cardholders more ways to use the card, in more places, for more things.”
