Thank you so much for the opportunity to provide you and your family with orthodontic care. It is our privilege to have you as part of our family! Orthodontic treatment is an excellent investment in the overall dental, medical, and psychological well-being of children and adults, and financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining this important health service. Following a full, comprehensive evaluation, the orthodontic treatment fee will be determined on a patient need basis. Your orthodontic treatment fee includes all appliances, braces, and all office visits required to complete your planned treatment. It also includes all emergency visits and replacement of broken or lost appliances (not in excess). After comprehensive treatment is complete, your fee covers retainers up to two replacements. The quoted treatment fee does not included incurred expenses from outside offices, including but not limited to, dental cleanings (which we recommend you continue every six months throughout treatment), fillings, extractions, surgical procedures, or replacement or restoration of missing or malformed teeth.

Because we understand that different people have different needs in fulfilling their financial responsibilities; we provide several payment options. We give discounts for all accounts paid in full and for all families with multiple patients. We also offer a “no interest” payment option with a down payment and monthly payments. The frequency of office visits and the length of treatment have no bearing on the monthly payment, but the payment schedule is provided for your convenience. For a “no down payment” option, we recommend LendingClub Patient Solutions or CareCredit, subject to credit approval and finance charges.

We are accustomed to helping our families plan to fully utilize their flexible spending or health savings accounts. Be sure to talk with our financial coordinator to discuss your particular needs. Once treatment has begun, we will courteously file your initial insurance claim. We do not accept insurance as a form of payment; all reimbursements will be sent directly to the insured. We are fully equipped to handle all sorts of special circumstances and are eager to make this process easier for you. Our goal is to help you make an informed decision.
