Payment and Insurance Options
We accept the following forms of payment:
- Personal Check
- Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express
There are many different agreements between insurance carriers and their subscribers, and each contract provides a different benefit. However, orthodontic insurance differs from regular dental insurance because each insured person usually has a lifetime maximum benefit for orthodontic services. This is paid as a percentage of the orthodontic fee (initial fee, monthly payments) until the benefit maximum has been reached.
For your convenience, we accept payment from insurance companies. We will gladly assist you in this process by submitting initial insurance claims for charges rendered in our office. However, please be aware that our primary financial relationship is with our patients or their families and not with their respective insurance companies. Financial arrangements can be made based on your estimated insurance benefit; however, any outstanding insurance claims not paid are the responsibility of the patient or the patient’s family.
It’s important that you know what your benefits are before treatment starts. If you’re unsure about what your benefits include, contact your insurance company so that you know exactly how much you can expect to be paid, and when to expect payment.

We cannot render services on the assumption that our charges will be paid by an insurance carrier. However, for your convenience, we will accept payments from your insurance company assigned to us by the insured. Such payments will be credited accordingly to your account.
If you would like our office to submit claim forms, we ask that you provide us with the name, address, telephone number and additional information for your insurance carrier. If anything happens in the future that changes your eligibility, your benefits may be reduced or denied. We are happy to accept the benefit payments from your insurance, but if the payments are ever denied or insurance benefits terminated, the unpaid balance will be your responsibility. For any additional questions regarding payment options or insurance, please contact one of our Orlando area offices today. We’re happy to address any concerns you may have.
