“The value of one’s
orthodontic experience
stays with them long
after the price has
been forgotten.”

Forward Benefits of Orthodontics

Although dental health concerns are frequently the primary reasons for orthodontic treatment, treatment is also based on the appearance of the person’s face, mouth and teeth.

According to a survey released by the Academy of General Dentistry, a person’s smile—not the clothing, hair or eyes—is what others notice first.

YOU ONLY GET ONE FIRST IMPRESSION!

Research has proven that children and adults who believe their teeth are unattractive may suffer from a lack of self-esteem and confidence. Whether you are a teenager competing in high school, a college graduate about to begin your professional career, a young executive striving to establish your position in the business world, a young mother attempting to create an ideal image for your children, a child standing on the threshold of a lifetime, or whether you are a grandmother who is enjoying a senior position of respect and dignity within the family circle…a beautiful, healthy smile translates into happiness invites communication, and opens the doors to success and fulfillment.

For pennies a day,
over one’s lifetime,
anyone can have a
beautiful smile with
well-functioning teeth
that last a lifetime.

Affordable & a Great Investment

Orthodontics is both affordable and a great investment. In comparison to the cost of healthcare and large investment items, such as cars and college, orthodontic treatment is a bargain.

Several analysts state that if treatment fees increased at the rate of health care and inflation, orthodontic treatment would be in the $8,000 to $12,000 range, double the cost of orthodontic treatment today.

Orthodontic treatment is more affordable than ever!
In view of the psychological benefits of orthodontics, the improved oral and dental health, the lifetime benefits of a beautiful smile, orthodontics is an excellent investment.

• Flexible Spending Accounts

One method that families use for general medical expenses that they may not think about for braces is a “flexible spending account.” Over one half of the nation’s largest companies offer these taxfavored savings accounts. Depending on an individual’s tax bracket, a person can save 15 to 40 percent by using them.

Patients can use up their savings at the end of the calendar year with a down payment for orthodontics.
We can even offer discounts to patients who sign contracts at year-end who will then fund their accounts for the following year.

• Creative Plans

Our staff can assist on MSA’s, borrowing against a life insurance policy and “gifting mechanism” that reduces estate taxes.

Before pursuing any investment or tax-advantaged opportunity, consult your attorney or tax advisor.

• Special Options

Multi-Family Discount:
families with more than one child in treatment will receive a $250.00 discount off the total fees for each additional child in treatment.

Referral Discount:
Refer a new family to our practice and $100.00 will be deducted from your last payment, if this family begins treatment.



If the down payment is
a problem or multiple
family members begin
treatment, we have
special programs.

More Affordable Treatment Options


TWO PHASE TREATMENT

For our two phase treatment, we subtract first phase from the full treatment price. In almost all other practices, second phase is close to or the same as the fee for the full treatment. This results in a significant cost saver for our patients!

For difficult cases requiring early intervention, we have a treatment plan of an early phase, followed by a rest phase, then final phase. Monthly payments are extended over the total treatment period, significantly reducing the impact on the monthly budget!

Additionally, we have found that using a “positioner” after the first phase not only gives an excellent finish, but most of the time eliminates the need for a second phase—a significant cost advantage for the family and no metal for the kids!

INVISALIGN™

Due to the tremendous response to this exciting technology, decreased charges from the Invisalign company, and our increased experience with the product, we are now able to offer Invisalign™ at a cost comparable to traditional fixed appliances, and offer the same financing options as our regular braces.

CLEAR BRACES AND LIGHT GOLD

We do not charge extra for cosmetic appliances. We want the patients to get what they really want!
