Paying for Braces

Our mission is to provide affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your family budget. We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs. For your convenience, we accept cash, checks, Visa, and MasterCard for the records and initial payment. We thoroughly explain your financial options so that we can accommodate your needs.

Our fee includes all appliances (braces) and the appointments required throughout the treatment process in our office. It also includes the initial set of retainers, as well as retainer adjustments for 12 months following active orthodontic treatment. Unfortunately, our fee does not include any treatment performed outside of our office or the cost of replacing a retainer that has been lost or broken. Retention includes:

  1. Retention appointments at: 1, 4, and 12 months (depending on the malocclusion).
  2. Two (2) sets of clear invisible Essix (removable) retainers within the first year of your braces being off.


The cost of your orthodontic treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our doctor and staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment, and each of your available payment plan options, so you are able to make the best choice for you and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.

We accept orthodontic insurance benefits from most all insurance companies. As a courtesy to our patients, we will help you determine and file insurance assignments to make sure your benefits are maximized. Most orthodontic coverage typically has a lifetime maximum benefit for each insured individual for orthodontic services rendered. The benefit will be credited to your total treatment fee, and as a convenience to you, we will accept payments directly from most insurance carriers.

Layaway Plan For Orthodontic Treatment

A healthy, beautiful smile is one of the best investments you can make in your future or in that of your child’s. We offer a variety of payment plans in our effort to help you fit this worthy investment into your budget and make it be affordable.

One of our payment options is a layaway plan, which allows our patients to plan ahead for braces. You can set money aside into this plan, even if you or your child are not currently ready for braces, but would be in six months to a year. This allows our patients and their families to plan ahead and easily budget for braces.

During your initial orthodontic consultation, our treatment coordinator will go over all of the financial options available to you. She also will help you customize a payment plan that fits your specific needs. We pride ourselves in working with our patients to budget their straight smile. If you are interested in straight teeth and our layaway plan, please call and schedule your free consultation.
