The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problems. Before any treatment is begun, we will discuss with you in detail the different payment plans we have to suit your specific budget. Typically the fee can be paid in monthly installments, interest-free over the course of treatment. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans, and file the necessary papers to the insurance company for you. It is our promise to you to make orthodontics affordable.

In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest quality of orthodontic care, we have established the following financial policy:

  • To specifically match your budget, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments several months, the length of treatment, or in some cases the arrangements have been extended beyond this point.
  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee credit of 7% if paid by check or cash, or a 5% fee credit if paid by credit card. In this case, any insurance benefit will be reimbursed directly to the subscriber.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment via cash, personal check, Flex spending accounts, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, Smart Pay and CareCredit.

Insurance

If you have insurance, we will work with you to determine the coverage you have available. We will help in every way possible in filing your insurance for you and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

Many insurance policies have a maximum for orthodontic coverage that is distinct from regular dental coverage.

Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you and your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits should change, the financially responsible party is accountable for any charges the insurance did not cover.
