Financial/Insurance

Cost

financialThe cost for treatment is based on many factors, including the complexity of the dental condition, estimated treatment time, and the type of treatment necessary to achieve the best results. We don’t want finances to keep you or your family from getting quality orthodontic care. We thoroughly discuss all fees and payment options prior to treatment, and will make every effort to make your treatment affordable.

Fees

Your treatment fee includes all visits, appliances, a set of retainers and follow-up retainer checks. To keep fees at a reasonable cost, while maintaining the highest quality care, we have developed this financial policy:

  • We accept cash, checks and all major credit and debit cards.
  • If payment is made in full with cash or check when treatment begins, we offer a discount.
  • Zero interest in-house financing is available.
  • We also offer low monthly payments through CareCredit. Payments will be spread out throughout the length of treatment. For pre-approval visit www.CareCredit.com.

*Note ~ Your personal payment schedule is not synchronized with how many adjustment visits you may have.

Insurance

If your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. At your initial consultation we will give you a “Predetermination of Benefits” form. This form will help us determine the orthodontic coverage you have available. Please remember, we provide care to you, not your insurance company.

Many dental insurance plans do not cover the total cost of treatment. There may be a deductible, a dollar limit and excluded services. If you do not receive your full orthodontic benefits, please speak with your employer’s benefit department, your insurance company or union agent. If needed, we can help you get the benefits you are entitled to. Unfortunately, All-Kids and Medicaid have no orthodontic benefits in Alabama.
