Orthodontic Care is More Affordable Than You May Think

Published on March 17, 2022
Orthodontic treatment is an excellent investment in the overall dental and psychological well being of children and adults. At Chorak Orthodontics, we are aware that people have finite budgets. Our office is accustomed to working with families and individuals to make orthodontic care affordable and budget-friendly.

You may be pleasantly surprised to learn how truly affordable orthodontic care is today. Monthly payments can be about the cost of a mobile phone plan, but the benefits last a lot longer. At the end of the day, orthodontic care is a lifetime investment in your or your child’s health and appearance, and payment plans and dental insurance can make orthodontic care quite manageable.  

If you’re worried that you can’t afford the cost of braces for yourself or your children...we have good news. Chorak Orthodontics offers a variety of ways you can pay orthodontic care.

Dental Insurance - Contact your insurance provider and find out what is covered under your plan. Many providers offer additional insurance that covers both dental and orthodontist work. If needed, we will help facilitate your understanding of your benefits. We accept assignment of benefits, and we will help in the completion of any necessary forms and documents.

Flexible Spending Account - Even if your dental plan does not cover orthodontics, your employer might offer a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA). The money you put into this account is not taxed, which means your dollars will go further. Contribute the maximum amount and use these funds to pay for expenses not covered by insurance, including braces.

Orthodontists Fee Plan - The Orthodontists Fee Plan is a financial resource that requires no money down and monthly payments for varying lengths of time. 

In-Office Payment Plan - Most people don’t pay for their braces in one lump payment. Instead, they’ll put money down and spread the remainder of the payment out over a few months. In this way, paying for braces can be a lot like making car payments. Our in-office payment plan requires a down payment upon initiation of treatment with monthly payments on the balance. This allows you to make affordable payments that you can handle from month to month.

Credit Cards - At Chorak Orthodontics, we gladly accept American Express, Discover, Visa and MasterCard.

Though orthodontics can come with a higher price tag, you do have many options to help you pay for your or your child’s orthodontic care. Start by having a conversation with Dr. Chorak then begin your journey toward an improved smile.
