We want you to have the smile you’ve always dreamed of so we offer several financing options.
Before your initial visit, we will contact your insurance company to find out if you have orthodontic insurance benefits and the specific amount of the benefit. Orthodontic benefits are different than general dental benefits because they have a lifetime maximum and often an age maximum. Some plans offer adult coverage and others offer coverage for children under age 19. Insurance coverage varies by employer so not all plans are the same even if you have the same insurance company as someone you know.
Our appointment coordinator will ask about your insurance information when you make your initial appointment so we can have all of your insurance information to review when you come to your first visit. We will work with you to maximize your benefits and help you determine if your flex spending or health savings benefits can contribute to payment for braces.
There is not an “average” fee for orthodontic treatment. Treatment plans vary from patient to patient and take into consideration many variables. We will provide a detailed financial estimate at the end of your initial exam. The financial estimate will have the total fee for treatment and retention minus insurance coverage and will outline 3 financing options.
- The first option offers the best savings opportunity and that is the pay in full. We offer discounts if you pay with cash, check, credit card, flex spending or health savings. We accept all major credit cards.
- The second option is in-house financing. We offer in-house financing with a down payment at the beginning of treatment and no-interest payments divided over the length of the treatment time.
- The third option is Care Credit. This is a medical/dental credit account that can be applied for at carecredit.com. You would use a Care Credit account to pay us and then you would pay Care Credit back over time. They offer terms longer than we can offer in the office; some are interest free.
