Our Dental Office Accepts Bitcoin!

We are Brooklyn’s and possibly New York’s first dental office to accept cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Litcoin, and Ethereum. Paying our dental office with Bitcoin and others will give you, our esteemed patients, the option to use multiple currencies, and having options is a great thing!

What does this new development mean for our patients who prefer to pay with cash, check, credit/debit card, or PayPal? Nothing – we still accept all those forms of payment, and we continue to do so for the foreseeable future. We jumped on the tech train, but that doesn’t mean you need to hop on as well in order to continue being seen by our staff at Smile By Design.

Implementing different cryptocurrencies in our Brooklyn dental office is a reflection of Dr. Abitbol’s philosophy of investing in the newest instruments and technology for maximal patient comfort and medical reliability; your care is a combination of your needs, preferences, and our professionalism combined into one.

Why is our dental office using cryptocurrencies? Blockchain technology, the medium by which cryptocurrencies operate, is very difficult to hack, and this increased security is worthwhile for a segment of our patients. Enhanced security also means we can spend less on additional technology that increases costs for our patients. Blockchain technology also allows for a greater amount of privacy when it comes to transactions, so beyond the necessary medical information we need from dental patients, the rest of their personal financial data is protected and not needed by our administration.

In addition, cryptocurrencies have the potential to allow smaller enterprises to compete with large businesses and hospitals who benefit from skewed financing laws. Our small dental office then has access to potential capital otherwise reserved for the big guys, and this will help us expand to a more responsive community participant.

Our staff at Smile By Design looks forward to attending to your needs whether you pay with traditional methods or cryptocurrencies. Our promise to you is to stay relevant and up-to-date with our technology in all regards, and using blockchain technology is another step towards fulfilling that promise.
