The only answer to the questions “What does orthodontic treatment cost?” is, of course, “Whatever the orthodontist charges.” This example illustrates the wide variation of orthodontic fees from one practice to another. Although our practice is neither a “high fee” nor a “low fee” practice, we believe our fees are appropriate for the high quality of service and treatment we provide to our patients.
Most orthodontic practices assign an arbitrary amount to the treatment fee. Our treatment fees are based upon the anticipated treatment time, the complexity of the required treatment, and the types of braces used.
Once the treatment plan (and insurance benefits, if available) are determined, we can arrange a comfortable down payment/monthly payment plan, 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). We are happy to give family discounts when an additional family member begins treatment. For your convenience, we can also use an automatic credit card debit plan, if you prefer. We accept payment by VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER and AMERICAN EXPRESS. To fit your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months. We will try to make the payment part of the treatment as easy for you as possible. In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate patients with temporary difficulties.
