Financial and Insurance Information

If left untreated, many orthodontic problems can create far more costly problems in the future. The cost is quite modest considering the physical and psychological benefits of orthodontic care can last a lifetime.

  • We offer a complimentary initial consultation to address your needs and concerns.
  • Our orthodontic fee includes exam and diagnostic records, all appliances, treatment visits, the first set of retainers and a year of follow-up after appliances have been removed.
  • Although fees vary according to the complexity and time involved with each individual’s case, a personalized payment plan will be arranged for your orthodontic care that fits within your family’s budget. For your convenience, a budget-friendly flexible payment plan can be made in our office or from the comfort of your own home.
  • Courtesies are offered to patients who pay their orthodontic fee in full at the beginning of treatment.
  • For your convenience we accept MasterCard and Visa.
  • We accept and file insurance assignment to make sure your benefits are maximized.
  • Pre-authorization of insurance benefits are determined prior to your initial visit.
  • If your employer offers a flexible spending plan, we can help plan your orthodontic expenses by utilizing these pretax dollars.
  • For your convenience, we offer automatic bank draft and electronic transfers to simplify monthly fees through Orthofi. This saves you time and eliminates the need for printing, mailing and cost incurred from postage.
  • If you should have any questions regarding financial options, please do not hesitate to contact our Financial Coordinator at Backus Smiles (205) 879-0557.
