Every patient has unique orthodontic problems with varying treatment challenges. Therefore, every patient will be assessed and provided with a custom financial plan.
Extra fee will be added for special braces such as clear or self ligating brackets. In most cases, clear brackets will be placed on upper teeth only.
Extra fees will be added for special devices such as TAD (temporary anchor device) or RPE (rapid palatal expander).
We accept most PPO plans. We do not accept HMO plans currently.
Many insurance plans have limitation clauses on orthodontic coverage. Please call us to clarify the coverage issues.
If you have insurance:
As a courtesy to our patients, we will file the insurance claim for you.
If the reimbursement is sent to you, you are responsible for the total treatment fee.
If it is sent to us, you are responsible for the total treatment fee minus the actual reimbursement from the insurance company.
When the treatment fee is financed through Blooming Smile Orthodontics, the financially responsible party needs to provide a copy of his/her driver's license and social security number.
We provide 10 months or 20 months payment plans depending on the expected treatment time of each patient.
Monthly payment is due on every month regardless of the treatment schedule.
We accept cash, Visa, Master, and checks.
There is $25 charge for a returned check.
For late payments, Blooming Smile Orthodontics holds right to charge a fine.
