financialinsuranceFees

Orthodontic fees reflect the high degree of skill and training required to become an orthodontist, as well as what is needed for effective treatment. Our fees cover all procedures in our office. We are always glad to furnish you with an estimate of how much treatment will cost.

Charges for treatment are determined and explained at the consultation appointment. They are based on the severity and complexity of the problem. Please do not hesitate to ask questions about our fees.

Payment

Most patients make monthly payments for orthodontics over the course of the treatment. We accept cash, personal checks, MasterCard and VISA.

Insurance

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. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action.

Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire.

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.
