Your treatment with us should be fun and rewarding. We are happy to answer any questions you have about financing or insurance. Our goal is to help you make sure that the cost of braces or Invisalign has little impact on your budget. We recognize that paying for orthodontic treatment can be stressful for people. That’s why we strive to make it affordable for everyone.

Orthodontic Financing

Will My Dental Insurance Cover Braces?

Many dental insurance plans cover the cost of orthodontics including Invisalign, metal, or clear braces. Insurance coverage varies depending on your plan. In most cases, you can contact your insurance provider to learn about what is covered or not covered. If you are still uncertain, give us a call at (316) 634-1230 and we can help you find out your coverage.

Is Invisalign More Expensive Than Braces?

There is a small additional fee for Invisalign treatment. In addition to Invisalign, we offer other types of clear aligners that can be used for more limited tooth movement, and these sometimes cost even less than Invisalign.

Is There An Additional Charge For Retainers?

No. Your treatment fee will include any retainers that are needed to hold your teeth in their new position. If you lose your retainers, there will be a replacement fee for any additional pairs.

Is There A Family Discount?

Yes. We know you will be so happy with your smile that you will want your family members to have one too. For each additional family member, we will provide a discount.

Do You Offer Financing for Braces?

Some of our patients choose to pay in full for orthodontic treatment and can receive a small discount. However, most patients choose to finance their orthodontic treatment over the course of several months or even years.

We have lots of patients who are in braces or clear aligners and we can customize a solution for your financial needs.

Will My Flexible Spending Account (FSA) Cover My Braces?

Orthodontic treatment almost always qualifies for FSA reimbursement. If your employer offers an FSA, let us know and we will verify your eligibility and help you get started.

Are There Any Other Hidden Costs Or Fees?

No. The price you pay for your orthodontic treatment covers everything we do to complete your treatment.

More Than A Smile

We want this to be more than a smile. Your experience should be truly inspiring.

A beautiful and healthy smile naturally leads to greater self-esteem. We will be satisfied with nothing less than the best when it comes to your teeth – the challenge that drives us is to exceed your expectations and give you the smile of your dreams.
