Financial

Financial considerations should not be an obstacle to a beautiful smile. Therefore, our practice offers a wide range of payment options. We accept payments through Visa, MasterCard and Discover credit cards. Financing options through CareCredit are also available. Financing with no initial payment can often be arranged. In addition, we can arrange a monthly installment plan. Many orthodontic problems require only limited treatment. The cost of treatment will vary, depending on the severity of the problem. Our Treatment Coordinator will work out a plan suited to your individual needs.

We deliver the finest care at the most reasonable cost to our patients. If you have questions regarding your account, please contact the appropriate office.

We will send you a monthly statement. Please remember you are fully responsible for all fees charged by this office regardless of your insurance coverage. Feel free to call our office if you have any questions. Any remaining balance after your insurance has paid is your responsibility. Your prompt remittance is appreciated.

Insurance

Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Our office will make every effort to provide you with the finest orthodontic care and the most convenient financial options. To accomplish this, we work hand in hand with you to maximize your insurance reimbursement for covered procedures.

We are a preferred provider for United Concordia, Aetna, UPMC Dental Advantage, MetLife, United Health Care, Cigna, Delta and Guardian.

If you have any problems or questions, please ask our staff. They are well informed and up-to-date. Feel free to call the appropriate office with any questions.

Please bring your insurance information with you to the consultation so that we can expedite reimbursement.
