Payment Options

We strive to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs.

The following types of payments are accepted:

  • Cash
  • Checks
  • Money orders
  • All major credit cards – Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express
  • Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA’s) – we accept benefit cards, or we can provide documentation for you to get reimbursed by your FSA.

We make payment plans with all of our patients. We offer in-house, no-interest payment plans with a down payment and monthly payments for 12 months, or paid in full bookkeeping discount of 5% for a one-time payment at the beginning of treatment. If you want to spread the payments over a longer period, you can apply for CareCredit.


CareCredit

As a service to our patients, we participate in CareCredit, a payment program specifically for medical usage. CareCredit allows you to make payments over a longer time period than our 12 month in-office plan. CareCredit pays the doctor up front (less a fee), and you pay CareCredit over the time period that is best for you. Note: there is no paid-in-full discount when using CareCredit.

With the No Interest Payment Plans* there are no interest charges if the balance is paid in full within the specified time period (12-24 months). Or, if you prefer an even lower monthly payment, you can choose the low interest, Extended Payment Plans* for procedure fees from $1,000 and up (36-60 months). There are no upfront costs, no annual fees, and no pre-payment penalties.

It’s easy to apply and you'll receive an approval decision in seconds. Apply by phone at 1-800-3658295 or at www.carecredit.com.

Insurance

If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime maximum orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Some policies require a pre-treatment authorization form to be filed before the treatment begins. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims and accept assignment for services.

To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire and bring your insurance card to the first visit appointment. Please call your insurance company to check on your benefits and lifetime maximum before you come for your consultation/first visit.

Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your insurance coverage in good faith, but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. If your benefits change during the course of treatment and the original estimate is not paid, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.
