Financial Information

The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option with you, so you can make the best choice for yourself 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.

Affordable Payment Plans

Your smile is yours forever, so we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best orthodontic care whenever you need it.

Our practice accepts most major credit cards and many insurance plans, including:

Delta Dental, Cigna, DHA/Assurant, United Concordia, Aetna, United Healthcare, Empire Blue Cross Blue Shield & Empire Premium Care Network

If we happen to not participate in your insurance plan, we will still handle all the paperwork, and most often will be able to maximize your out-of-network benefit where your out of pocket cost may actually differ very little than if you went to an in-network provider!

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.
