At Keene Orthodontic Specialists, we are willing to discuss many options for payment of fees. We feel that financial issues, whenever possible, should not prevent you from receiving the orthodontic treatment you or your family needs.
If it is determined at your first visit that treatment is recommended, or that an orthodontic plan should be developed, the next step is to get more pieces of information (called Diagnostic Records). Payment for the Diagnostic Records and Consultation is due in full at the time of the Records appointment and is not part of the fee for treatment.
When a treatment plan is agreed on, whether it is a comprehensive long-term treatment, or simply an appliance and limited office visits, a financial arrangement is completed prior to the start of the treatment.
Options for Financial Arrangements
1. Prepayment. Total treatment fees over $2,500.00 that are paid in full at the start of treatment will receive a discount. Should you elect to finance through Care Credit® the prepayment discount does not apply.
2. 25% initial payment and monthly installments. 25% of the treatment fee due at the start of treatment, and the remaining balance paid in monthly installments for up to 24 months (interest free).
3. Extended payment arrangements. Patients desiring no down payment and/or more extended payment arrangements may contact Care Credit, a company that specializes in the financing of orthodontic treatment. Their brochure is available upon request.
4. For your convenience, monthly payments are automatically taken directly from your checking , savings or major credit card.
Some patients have dental insurance which covers part of the cost of orthodontic treatment. Please bring in your insurance information at the time of your first visit so that we may file the claim for you at the start of treatment.
