Our goal at Smith Orthodontics is to make orthodontic treatment affordable for everyone. So Dr. Smith offers a variety of payment options to meet patient needs.
How Much Do Braces Cost?
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 will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget so you know what to expect before beginning treatment.
While insurance generally doesn’t completely cover the cost of braces or Invisalign, it can reduce the amount you have to pay. If you have insurance that covers any portion of your orthodontic treatment, our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork.
Our in-network status with several major insurance providers means you get the best coverage they offer and the payments are made directly to our office, so you don’t have to forward checks or ask to be reimbursed.
Payment Plans And Care Credit
The majority of our patients do not have room in their budget to pay for Invisalign or braces all at once, so we have two different payment options.
We offer in-office payment plans that allow patients to pay a reasonable down payment at the beginning of treatment and make affordable monthly payments. Our payment plans are interest-free and managed through us rather than a third party.
We also accept payments through Care Credit. Care Credit offers short-term financing options for healthcare costs not covered by insurance, including orthodontic treatment. This program is also interest-free as long as the balance is paid in full by the end of the term.
HSAs And FSAs
Health savings accounts (HSAs) are offered to people who have high-deductible insurance plans and allow them to set aside pre-tax dollars for medical care.
Flexible spending accounts (FSAs) do the same for those with normal deductibles, but the money saved must be used by the end of the year.
Both of these accounts can be used to pay for braces.
To show our gratitude, we offer a 10% discount to active duties military, service members, and their immediate families to those who are currently serving.
We also accept all major military dental insurance plans to make treatment as affordable as possible.
We know this will never repay the sacrifices military families make on a daily basis, but we hope it serves as a small token of our appreciation.
