Easy financing will help the millions of Canadians who cannot afford basic dental care.
TORONTO, June 12, 2023 /CNW/ - LendCare Capital Inc., a leading Canadian finance and technology company and a wholly-owned subsidiary of goeasy Ltd. (TSX: GSY), has announced a new partnership with 123Dentist, one of the country's largest dental support organizations. This latest partnership positions LendCare as the preferred financing partner for 123Dentist, a national network of supported dental practices that provide a wide range of dental care to more than 800,000 Canadian patients and over 2.5 million patient visits annually. In working with the network, LendCare further solidifies its growing role as a premier new lender in the Canadian healthcare sector.
LendCare's financing will enable more 123Dentist patients to access essential dental services for themselves and their families. This is especially critical, as a third of all Canadians have no access to dental insurance, and one in five families currently skip dental visits altogether due to their inability to afford them.
LendCare's President, Ali Metel, explains, "Our web-based financing platform, FrontLine, will allow patients to submit financing applications and get decisions in seconds so they can move forward with procedures confidently; this will empower supported dentists in the 123Dentist network to deliver high-quality dental care to individuals and families in their community."
Ali Metel also points out the synergy between LendCare and 123Dentist, as both companies work to help their partners take a patient-first approach, in this case, by eliminating a traditional financial roadblock for patients in need of dental treatment.
Aaron Lipton, Chief Growth Officer for 123Dentist, adds, "Since Dr. Amin Shivji opened his first clinic in 1993, and continued with the launch of our national platform in 2017, we have always focused on creating a thriving dental community that focuses on the delivery of exceptional care and improving access to high quality dentistry services. We see this new partnership as a way to further that mission."
This partnership and Patient Financing alternative is available to support patients' needs in over 425 supported 123Dentist practices across Canada.
