We Love Our Gwinn Community

At Northern Trails Dental Care, Dr. Buck and our team truly love our Gwinn community and the opportunity to provide exceptional care for our friends and family here. One thing we love the most about our home in the Upper Peninsula is all of the amazing nature, scenery, and of course the lovely walking and hiking trails. In fact, we love them so much we’ve named our dental practice and all of our treatment rooms after our favorite local trails. If you’ve found us at Northern Trails Dental Care, you should know you’re on the right path in your oral health journey.

Payment Options

Affording health care can be one of the most frustrating challenges in life. We understand! When our family, friends or ourselves are unable to afford the healthcare we need, this is stressful and upsetting.

Here at Northern Trails, we are on your team! Let us be your advocates in finding a way you can afford the dental care you need and want. We can help with prioritizing treatment, spreading treatment out over time, and we also offer several different payment options. These include low- or no-interest payment plans with CareCredit, layaway plans, and segmenting dental care.

We believe it is our responsibility to each patient to offer care at the most reasonable cost possible. We would never be proud to be the most expensive. You will find that our fees are very reasonable for our region. When paired with our experienced, highly-trained and compassionate team in our high-tech office, this is a wonderful value!

Please don’t hesitate to bring us into your corner to fight for the dental care that you need! We love making you smile!

We’re happy to accept cash, personal check, and major credit cards, as well as most major insurance plans with financing options available.

Insurance Accepted

We are happy to accept most major insurance plans. Dr. Buck is now a CIGNA Insurance PPO and Delta Dental Premier provider.

We do not accept Medicaid and Medicaid insurance does not pay to our office. However we do have some patients with Medicaid insurance who still choose to be cared for by our friendly team. We are advocates for you to get the care you need and are happy to be creative in finding out ways to make your dental treatment work into your budget with methods like spreading out treatment over time, developing a layaway plan for dental care, arresting existing decay with a bactericidal as you progress through your treatment plan, amongst other ideas.

Flexible Financing

Dr. Buck and our team understand that making dental care a financial priority can be difficult. That’s why we’re happy to offer flexible financing options to help our patients get the care they need without breaking the bank.


CareCredit® is one of the leading healthcare credit cards, and is accepted at over 175,000 providers nationwide. CareCredit® works just like any other credit card, but is used strictly for healthcare expenses, including dentistry. Pay upfront for necessary procedures, and make affordable monthly payments that work with your budget. CareCredit® financing is flexible, convenient, and the application process is simple.
