Financial Info & Insurance

The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option with you, 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, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.

Affordable payment plans

Your smile is yours forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best orthodontic care whenever you need it.

** Our practice accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans. **

If you have orthodontic insurance, or believe you may have coverage, please be certain to inform our staff.  We do participate with several dental plans and will do our best to make sure you get your full benefit.  Even if we do not “participate” with your plan, you are often able to still get the full benefits from your plan.  Our insurance specialist Debbie handles most insurance issues and can be contacted at

We are always here to help you and we will do all the paperwork in order to file your insurance with the appropriate insurance carrier. 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 it is not 100% coverage, but rather that each insured individual has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services.  This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee until the benefit maximum has been reached.  Orthodontic insurance is a separate benefit within your dental insurance, just as dental insurance is a different benefit than medical insurance.  Your use of your dental insurance does not affect the orthodontic financial coverage and visa versa.

If you have any questions, please ask us as we are here to help and do not want finances to get in the way of creating an outstanding SMILE!   Regardless of insurance, other payment plans and financial options are always available.
