Many people have called our office or sent us emails and asked, “How much do braces cost?” Our response is, “We can’t give you a quote over the phone but immediately after the consultation appointment you will be provided a full quotation prior to making any decision to start treatment. Dr. Suliman will take a look to see what’s needed, put a treatment plan together and then we will go over financial options with you.”
There is not a one price fits all quote. There are many variables in determining each patient’s treatment plan and therefore the cost, including but not limited to treatment times, appliances needed and goals the patients are wanting to achieve. What we can do is offer a consultation appointment which includes x-rays, photos, and time with Dr. Suliman where she will do her examination, put together a treatment plan and answer all of your questions.
When the examination is complete, and treatment requirements and length of treatment time has been determined, these factors will be used to create a financial options sheet. Our treatment coordinator will then go over the cost of treatment, what is included and will help put together a financial plan that works best with the patient’s budget.
At Dr Suliman-Orthodontist Practice, we want everyone to receive the treatment they desire and/or need without cost being the deciding factor. If our patient has orthodontic insurance, we file with their insurance companies and work hard to ensure our patients receive their benefits.
We do offer an in house monthly payment plan option with no interest and no hidden fees. Typically, payment plans are spread out over the course of 1.5 years, depending on the estimated length of treatment time.
We know some orthodontists advertise one down payment option with a set monthly fee. But at our Orthodontic practice we see our patients as individuals with different needs and requirements. We don’t see patients, we see people. We see people who deserve quality care and treatment by a specialist, at a cost they can afford. We see people who are choosing to invest in the health and look of their smile or their child’s smile. Yes, it is an investment and it is an investment we want to help you achieve.
