21 May Affordability of Orthodontic Treatment
If you are curious about orthodontic treatment, or if you or a family member require braces (or Invisalign ), you may have questions about the financial commitment necessary to obtain a healthy and beautiful smile.
Don’t worry, we are here to help!
At Taunton Orthodontics in Whitby, we want your smile to be affordable! How can you feel prepared and educated for this investment? Here are a few questions our friends at the Canadian Association of Orthodontists recommend asking your orthodontist:
1. Ask about insurance – Health insurance benefits can make orthodontic treatment more affordable for many families! Ask your insurance carrier what they offer and the coverage rules. Sometimes if both parents have coverage plans – you can apply to both, which can substantially reduce out of pocket costs. Additionally, many of our patients use their health spending accounts to help cover the costs. For those without insurance, you may be able to claim treatment under health care expenses on your taxes (a good question for your accountant!)
2. Plan at home, and with your orthodontist! Just like any investment, it takes planning. Saving and planning for the cost in advance can help. At Taunton Orthodontics, we also offer no interest in-house financing solutions along with zero down payment options for some cases.
Feel free to speak to us openly about any questions you may have! We want to help make your treatment as affordable as possible. Contact us for your smile consultation today. We are proud to create beautiful smiles in the communities of Whitby, Oshawa and the Brooklin area… and beyond!
