Our practice is pleased to offer Care Credit for patient financing options. A variety of flexible plans provides low monthly payments with no money down and no payment for weeks. You can apply online here.

Our fees are structured in an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest quality of professional care. We abide by accepted dental plans fee schedules, as well as our own set fees. When your accept treatment in our office, you agree to be financially responsible for the entire fee, independent of insurance coverage. Flexible payment arrangement is available. Since we set a scheduled time for each patient, if an emergency arises, please give us 24hr notice. If your appointment is cancelled without prior notice (24 hrs) a fee will apply.
To assist our patients in financing, we offer an in-house option of 20% down and the remaining balance is divided over the months determined for orthodontic treatment completion. Your insurance plan may cover a portion of orthodontic treatment. If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount (If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance). Most orthodontic retainers/appliances that are limited treatment will require 50% down initially, and the balance is due at the time of delivery. For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA, MASTERCARD, and AUTOMATIC DEBIT from your checking account or credit card. We have an outside financing company option. The rates and terms vary. If you have been given a treatment plan, you may apply online or in our office for credit at: Care Credit – www.carecredit.com
