Credit Card Processing

Endorsed by 2​5+ medical and dental associations - including the Illinois State Dental Society - Best Card offers great rates and personalized customer service for credit card processing. Thousands of dental offices have saved an average of 2​​4% ($​2,​​768 annually) in credit card fees over their prior processor. You will receive one deposit and one monthly statement for all of your activity for MasterCard/Visa/Discover and American Express. Close your batch by 5pm CST and receive next business day funding.

Best Card understands that your credit card processing statement can be hard to decipher so we encourage you to calculate your effective rate: Take your total fees charged (including AMEX) and divide it by the total $$ processed. If this number is greater than 2.1% (0.021 on calculator), you may be paying too much. Example: $321 (fees) ÷ $9,653 ($ processed) = 0.0332 or 3.33%.
