1. Choose an orthodontist that offers flexible payment options. Every child deserves to have a beautiful smile, and cost should not be the barrier to entry. It’s important that the orthodontist allows monthly payments to be spread out over treatment so you don’t have to pay it all up front. Ideally, you want to find an orthodontist that offers 0% interest during the financing process.
2. Check with your dental insurance to see if braces or Invisalign are covered. Check with your provider to see what coverage you have. Many insurances offer a lifetime benefit that can range from $1,000 – $5,000. Remember insurance is a scenario where you “use it or you lose it”. This means if you’re waiting to use your lifetime maximum, it may not be available if your employer changes insurances or you change jobs. Here’s another interesting fact, even if your orthodontist is not listed on your dental insurance’s website as a provider, they may still accept your insurance!
3. Flexible savings accounts and health savings accounts are gold! These types of accounts can be used to pay for orthodontic care and the money is set aside tax free. Orthodontic care qualifies as a medical expense under these types of accounts.
