Like everything else in life these days, finances are an important element of our everyday decision making process. We view orthodontic treatment as an investment, and that is why we don’t aim to be the “cheapest.” We believe that providing value and quality should be our primary concern. Like ever other business, orthodontic practices have expenses. We have highly trained staff, use the best appliances and materials in our treatments and procedures, employ the latest technology, and practice the highest standards in infection control. If a practice wishes to distinguish itself by being the cheapest, you have to ask yourself, “What is causing them to control costs so heavily?” The answer might scare you.
Once Dr. Jaffe has established that you or your child is ready for orthodontic treatment, one of our treatment coordinators, Cindy or Joyce, will discuss the fee and payment arrangements with you. Just because we are not the cheapest does not mean we will not assist you in making treatment affordable. We will help you determine your insurance benefit, and we are currently participating providers with MetLife, Blue Cross, and Delta Dental. We will also help to arrange a financing plan that is in line with your budget.
We currently offer in-house financing with a minimum $500 down payment and 0% interest. We also offer third party financing with no down payment through CareCredit and Springstone. In addition, up to $2,500 tax-free “Flex Spending” dollars can be used to pay part of the cost.
*Average Case Fee = $5,000
Down Payment = $500
Monthly Fee = $125 per month over 24 months
If you factor the tax savings from $2,500 of Flex Spending, this number is just over $100 per month. Stop and think about it. That comes to $100 per month over 2 years, which is a low amount for a lifetime of smiles.
*Case fee and Insurance benefit will vary from individual to individual.
