The benefits of a beautiful healthy smile are truly priceless, and a straight smile is one of the best investments you can make for your child. The actual cost of dental and orthodontic treatment depends upon the complexity of the problems and treatment goals. We promise to clearly communicate with you the fees prior to any treatment. For pediatric dental treatment, payment is expected at the time treatment is rendered. For orthodontic treatment, flexible financing with no-interest monthly payments is available.


We participate as a provider for most major insurances plans. On your first appointment, please remember to bring a copy of your insurance card to assist us with filing. As a courtesy, we will identify the insurance benefits, file the claims and help maximize the benefits. If you have insurance that covers orthodontic treatment, your personal out of pocket costs can be significantly reduced. Many insurance policies feature a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is different from regular dental insurance. When you come in for your first visit, we will review your insurance to determine the best course of action.

Appointment Cancellation

We ask as a courtesy that if you should have a change in your schedule and are unable to keep an appointment that you cancel with 24 hours notice. We understand that unforeseen events can happen, but we would appreciate your cooperation.
