The cost of orthodontic treatment varies for each individual depending on their needs and treatment plan. At your initial consultation, Samantha will discuss the cost of each available treatment plan. We will not surprise you with costs, and will always be upfront with expenses associated with your treatment before you begin. In some cases, the treatment plan will require assistance from specialists outside our office. Examples include extractions by the dentist, tooth exposure by a periodontist, or jaw surgery by an orthognathic surgeon. We will discuss any such needs at your consultation and can give you a referral to the right team for evaluation and cost estimates.
Samantha will review your orthodontic treatment costs and explain any insurance benefits in place. Then we work to find a payment plan that works for you. We offer free in-house financing, meaning we are happy to spread the cost of treatment across 12-36 months with no interest charges. In addition, we do not insist on tying the payment window to your treatment time. Most families run on a monthly budget, so the monthly payment amount is most important for them. If a particular treatment plan is 18 months, we are happy to extend payments over 24 months if needed to get that monthly figure easily manageable.
Finally, we handle all the hassle for you! Our team can file insurance benefits with any carrier, and we will set up the automatic monthly billing for you. Because orthodontic appointment intervals vary from 4-8 weeks depending on the type and stage of treatment, automatic monthly billing saves you from having to swing by each month!
