cost of treatment
Treatment costs vary, depending upon each patient’s orthodontic needs. During your initial consultation, your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees, and we will inform you of all costs before treatment is administered. Our Treatment Coordinators will do their best to accommodate your financial needs.
We generally require an initial down payment to begin treatment. Also, Orthodontic Specialists offers our patients an interest-free payment plan.
In some cases, our patients prefer the option of paying the cost of treatment in-full and up-front. We offer a 5% discount off the total treatment fee for this option. We also offer multiple family member discounts!
Our office accepts payments by all major credit cards - Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards or by electronic check transfer. These payments can be made on-line at our website www.orthospcs.com or by phone during business hours. We also offer Care Credit as an alternative credit option for your orthodontic needs.

We understand that orthodontic treatment is a big investment for our families. Please communicate your financial goals with your Treatment Coordinator. They may be able to assist with flexible payment options. Please know that your conversations with our Doctors and staff are always private and confidential.
We will gladly assist you with filing your insurance claim. Please be sure to bring any dental insurance information with you, so the proper paperwork can be filed. We will help to answer any of your insurance needs, including questions on your Flex Spending or Health Savings Accounts.
Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims.
Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is still accountable for all orthodontic fees.
