Finances & Insurance
In-network with major dental carriersAs an in-network provider for some of the major dental insurance companies, we offer you the ultimate in convenience and flexibility, and are happy to file your primary insurance claim, and answer any questions you have about your plan.
Most dental insurance policies cover 80% to 100% of dental work needed during a given year; however, orthodontic insurance is different. Most orthodontic policies cover 50% of the cost, up to a specified lifetime maximum set by each insurance company. Prior to your first appointment, we ask that you become familiar with your benefits so we can provide the most accurate information regarding your out of pocket expenses throughout your treatment.
Dental Advantage PlanCarolina Orthodontics & Children's Dentistry is now offering patients with no dental insurance a way to save money while still receiving excellent dental care. For this reason, we have created a Care Advantage Plan that only costs $299/year*. With this plan there are no waiting periods, no deductibles, no yearly maximums, and no pre-existing conditions clauses to begin your dental care. Click here for more details and the sign up sheet.
*Additional family members are $250/yr
OrthodonticsTreatment fees vary according to the time estimated for your individualized treatment and a few other factors. Our fees are all-inclusive. This means we do not charge for pre- and post-treatment records, braces removal, or retainers. An estimate of these fees will be provided during your first appointment at the complimentary consultation. Don’t worry, all financial arrangements will be thoroughly discussed with you before beginning treatment.
Financial OptionsWe offer various payment plans and work closely with you to find one that fits into your budget. Our payment and financing options include:
No interest, in-office financing: This usually consists of a down payment and then the balance divided into interest-free, monthly installments over the course of the treatment.
Fee reductions are offered for pre-payment in full or for families with multiple patients.
