How It Works

Every smile journey begins with a free consultation.

At this appointment, we’ll collect digital X-rays and photo images and perform a complete examination.

The cost of your treatment will depend on your orthodontic issues. At the end of the visit, we‘ll give you the cost of treatment, and our treatment coordinator will be happy to discuss the payment options we offer to help make your treatment as budget-friendly as possible.

    • This is a convenient and efficient way to ensure that your payment is received on time, every time.
    • This service is free for our patients.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by:

  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we‘ll offer a fee discount.

Insurance Policies

We accept most insurance plans. If you provide us with your insurance plan information before you come in for your consultation, we’ll call your insurance company to find out your specific benefits.

The amount that your insurance covers will be deducted from the total treatment fee. As a service to you, we’ll take care of all the necessary insurance paperwork on your behalf.
