It is our mission to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget! The fee depends on many factors, including severity of the patient’s case, treatment time to accomplish our goals, and appliances required to achieve those goals. We realize that this is an important investment, and we offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. Our office accepts payments by cash, checks, debit cards, and Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover credit cards. If you have any questions about financing or payment, ask us!
For your benefit, we have the following financial policies:
If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount. (If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.)
To fit your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months with our automatic credit or debit program.
For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover.
As a courtesy, our office will accept assignment of insurance benefits and credit any insurance payments to your account. Please note that we have no contractual relationship with your insurance company and cannot enforce payment. In the event of non-payment by your insurance company, the parent/responsible party will be held fully responsible for payment.
If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.
Because insurance policies are different, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. To help us with your insurance filing, please bring your insurance card or insurance information with you to your consultation. We will help you understand all the details of your insurance benefits, and we will also file them for you if you proceed with treatment! Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.
