Financial Information

We strive to provide you with affordable, high-quality treatment. The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s problem and the particular type of treatment needed.

You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. Our treatment fees are “all-inclusive” and cover your diagnostic records, your appliances, all of your treatment visits, your initial set of retainers, and retention evaluations after your appliances have been removed.

This ensures you never have to worry about any “surprise” expenses coming up during your treatment!

Affordable Payment Plans

Your smile is yours forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to feel comfortable making this investment in your child or yourself.  We have several payment options available to meet the needs of our patients, including:

  • A fee discount if payment is made in full at the onset of treatment
  • Financing for a zero-interest plan that extends your payments over a period of months utilizing an automatic banking withdrawl
  • Acceptance of payment by Visa and MasterCard
  • We are happy to work with you in best utilizing flex / health savings accounts


If you have insurance, we will help you determine the coverage you have available. As a courtesy, we will be happy to complete and file insurance forms relative to your treatment. Orthodontic benefits vary greatly between companies and individual plans regarding the amount of coverage and details pertaining to how the benefit is paid. You might find it helpful to contact your insurance representative or human resources office to get more details about your individual plan.

Please let us know if you have any questions about your insurance coverage or ideas about how we can make your entire orthodontic experience a pleasant one.
