Financial & InsuranceThe cost of orthodontic treatment varies depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and payment plan options so you can make the best choice for you, and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget so you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
How does orthodontic insurance work? There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers, and each contract provides a different benefit. However, orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance in that each insured individual usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee (diagnostic records, initial fee, monthly payments, etc.) until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances may not be covered by insurance.
