Our office accepts payments by cash, check, Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards. We also offer no-interest financing options through our office and the CareCredit system. If you have any questions about financing or payment, ask us! We will thoroughly explain your choices and work hard to accommodate your needs.

Insurance

We participate with many insurance carriers. 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 separate from regular dental coverage. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate payment amount. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims. Please be aware that the insurance benefit is paid out as the treatment progresses; the benefit rarely is paid in full at the beginning, even if you pay your part in full. For this reason we advise not changing or cancelling your plan until all the benefit has been paid.

To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire. Once treatment has started, we will file your insurance claims for you. Please remember that insurance is a contract with you and/or your child. If during the course of treatment your benefits change or are cancelled, you are responsible for any balance not covered by your plan.
