At Smart Orthodontics it is our mission to provide you, our patient, with affordable, high-quality treatment that fits into your budget. We can offer you a variety of payment options to meet your financial needs. If you need any questions answered about financing or payment, please ask us. We will be happy to thoroughly explain your choices and we will work hard to accommodate your needs.
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. Insurance policies vary, so we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims.
To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire.
Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is responsible for all charges.
