  • Insurance

If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. 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.

We are a preferred provider for some insurances plans and will file your claims as a courtesy. Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit to you and your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financial responsible party is accountable for all charges. It is important to keep the same insurance for two full years, as insurance companies legally have a two year window to complete payment.
