Vilnius Odontology Clinic Center Denticija from now on offers payment for services using Bitcoins, a virtual currency that makes banks worry and that is a novelty in Lithuania. Our clinic is the first and only odontology clinic in Lithuania offering its patients the possibility to pay for services with Bitcoins
“We take care of our clients. We are not only ensuring the highest quality of services provided by professionals using modern odontology equipment, we are also introducing in our clinic novel technologies that enable us to be even more convenient for our customers, and attractive to customers from abroad. Vilnius Center Denticija is situated in the heart of the capital of Lithuania, and foreigners that need odontology services are constant guests in our clinic. Payment for services using Bitcoins may be extremely convenient to such patients”, the Director of the Clinic Aurimas Marozas commented on the introduction of this novelty.
This payment method is attractive to many because the use of the Bitcoin system does not include any control center, the transaction cannot be denied or blocked, there is no need for a bank account, and only an internet connection is needed for quick payment. These features offer an advantage compared with other methods of payment. However, the question arises: is it safe?
Customers paying for services using Bitcoins have no obligation to present their personal data. Thus they protect their confidentiality and are not obliged to provide access to their money to anyone else”, says Rytis Bieliauskas, representative of the company “CoinGate” that ensures the smooth functioning of the service provided by Vilnius Odontology Clinic Center Denticija.
Quality assurance specialists mention one more fact proving that payment using Bitcoins is safe: “As data of credit cards transactions provide access to other money on the account of the customer, these transactions shall be coded and transferred through a safe communication pathway. When a pathway’s safety is compromised, other money could be stolen from the customer’s account. Bitcoins transaction data does not provide access to other money on the customer’s account, and therefore they are sent not-coded and may be transferred even through unsafe communication pathways”.
According to A. Marozas, the Clinic does not promote a patient’s payment using Bitcoins; however, this is an excellent alternative that can help the enterprise to stay innovative, and not only in the field of odontology.
“Payment using Bitcoins is extremely quick, no additional taxes are needed, data safety is guaranteed. In order to pay for our services, only a cellphone and internet connection are needed. When your cellphone with the special application is directed towards the reading station, the QR code is read and payment is completed. When the payment is made, Bitcoins automatically are converted to euros, and neither patient nor service provider should face any problems”, said the Director of the enterprise. “We are focused on client-enjoying innovations, and our duty is to be on the lookout for innovations and offer modern technologies for the convenience of patients”, assures A. Marozas.
