The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s problem. However, we do not want finances to be an obstacle to obtaining a beautiful smile. We offer many easy financing and payment options in order to meet the financial needs of all of our patients. We also accept most insurance plans; we’ll even file the necessary papers to your insurance company! We work hard to make orthodontics affordable to everyone.
Our Treatment Coordinator will discuss the orthodontic treatment fee and all the features it includes (e.g.., retainers). In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
- If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount.
- If you make a down payment (25% of the total cost) at the start of treatment, you can have monthly payments divided out over the course of treatment. Our doctors carry this contract in the office at no additional interest or finance charge.
- We also accept no-down-payment outside financing through CareCredit™. CareCredit™ offers some of the lowest interest rates available for this type of loan. They require no money upfront and offer low monthly payments for up to 60 months.
- For your convenience, we accept payment by most major credit cards.
Unlike insurance coverage for regular dental treatment, most orthodontic coverage typically has a lifetime maximum benefit for each insured individual for orthodontic services rendered. Our office will help you figure out a payment plan that is best suited to your needs. If you have insurance coverage, we can help you fill out your insurance forms so that you can collect that benefit directly from your insurance company. This benefit is generally paid monthly through the duration of treatment until the maximum benefit has been attained.
If your employer offers a flexible spending plan, we can help plan your orthodontic expenses by utilizing these pretax dollars.
