Financial Information

Financing Options

We strive to make our orthodontic care a great value, providing only the treatment you need at a fair price. Fees for orthodontic treatment depend on your treatment plan and will vary accordingly. We will discuss all fees with you before we begin treatment. It is important to us that we work out a convenient payment plan with you. We offer various plans to suit your needs.

We offer flexible interest-free financing. We also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover Card.

Our treatment coordinators will discuss all of the options available to you during your initial appointment and finalize those arrangements during the consultation visit.

Insurance

There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers, and each contract provides a different benefit. However, orthodontic insurance generally differs from regular dental insurance in that each insured individual usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This benefit is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee (diagnostic records initial fee, monthly payments, etc.) until the benefit maximum has been reached. Charges for lost or broken appliances or retainers may not be covered by insurance.

Know what your benefits are before treatment starts. If you are not sure, contact your insurance company so you know exactly how much you can expect to be paid and when to expect payment.

Please bring your insurance information to your initial visit. We will assist you in filing the necessary paperwork for your insurance carrier. We are also happy to file your claim. Stieg & Wachtel Orthodontics will accept payment from your dental insurance and work with you on payment for any remaining balance.

Please notify our office immediately of any changes in your insurance plan or benefits.
