Depew Orthodontics believes everyone should be able to afford an Incredible Smile. We serve the hard working communities of Metro Atlanta and Northwest Georgia and recognize that you have many financial obligations to meet. We work with you to accommodate affordability and get you the smile you deserve with a payment that fits into your lifestyle.
Our Doctors were raised in Metro Atlanta and are passionate about bringing world class orthodontics and service to our hometown. We will not let finances get in the way of starting treatment. Through our partnership with OrthoFi, no one is denied flexible payment options at Depew Orthodontics.
New patients seeking orthodontic care with us are offered an initial appointment at no charge. Our doctors are known for giving the most thorough and informative consultations. During your visit, our doctor will evaluate your smile, bite, and discuss all your concerns. They will review a customized orthodontic treatment plan with you, along with any options or alternatives you may have. In rare, more complex cases additional time may be necessary to arrive at your plan. Some patients choose to undergo a more limited plan in order to save money.
Through our affiliate, OrthoFi, we can offer incredible flexibility like no one else. Unlike many offices, you choose your initial investment, your monthly payment, and your length of payment based on your family situation and your monthly budget. Many patients will pay for the whole treatment up front in order to get a discount for doing so. Others will pay a large amount up-front to decrease their monthly payments. Some patients choose to complete their payments during their estimated treatment time, while others will extend payment considerably past that time in order to lower monthly payments, with no large initial payment at all. OrthoFi makes it easy for you to custom tailor your plan!
We will work with most insurance companies and are happy to file insurance on your behalf and accept assignment as partial payment for your account to help decrease your out-of-pocket investment.
Be sure to specify your insurance information when you complete your New Patient forms provided by OrthoFi, so we will know about your benefits before you arrive for your first appointment. If your insurance situation should change during your treatment, please be sure to let us know.
A common misconception is that you can only see an in-network orthodontist. FALSE! For almost all orthodontic insurances, you will still get the same insurance benefit regardless of if you see an in-network doctor or not. You can have quality treatment and not have to go to an in-network doctor.
Flexible Spending Accounts
Flexible Spending Accounts offer a significant tax advantage and can be the most powerful way to save money on your orthodontic treatment. Many employers offer FSA’s allowing you to use pre-tax dollars towards healthcare expenses, including orthodontics. With FSA accounts, you may be able to pay for the entire treatment on a tax advantaged basis, by paying over two or more years. To take advantage of your FSA, be aware of your employer’s deadlines for planning for your FSA pre-tax contributions. You may need to have an orthodontic exam with us before that time to know how much to set-aside. And don’t worry, we can still file your insurance along with using your FSA benefit for even greater savings.
What Does Your Treatment Fee Include?
As orthodontics is a life-changing investment, it’s important to know up front, what is included in your fee. Beware of providers who may have hidden fees or surprise charges. Our fees are all-inclusive and include:
Complete orthodontic records
Customized treatment plan
Placement of orthodontic appliances (braces)
Reasonable comfort and repair visits
One set of retainers
One year of retention visits
Low Cost Braces
All orthodontists are not created equal. Many people don’t realize that orthodontics is far more than just braces. Since our patients will likely be part of our family for one, two, or even several years, it’s critical that we treat them with care, respect, and professionalism. We strive to make each experience with us exceptional. Braces can be done cheaply, but in doing so high-quality care with a great result is likely to be sacrificed.
All orthodontists know the value of their treatment, and charge accordingly. Low fee providers charge what their treatment is worth. Like any business, in order to provide lower fees, some things have to be compromised in order to remain profitable. In orthodontics that is often comprised of things like:
Low quality braces (often from third world countries)
Frequent change in doctors (especially in corporate practices)
All these things can lead to longer treatment time with more and longer visits, a not-so-incredible smile, and an aggravating and miserable experience. And it may end up costing you more in money, time, missed work, and re-treatment in order to get the result you want.
We believe our patients deserve not only an incredible smile, but also an outstanding patient experience, and strive to achieve this at each visit. We warn against seeking the lowest cost braces. There is so much to lose and once that decision is made, it may be too late. We make high-quality care affordable!
Free Ceramic Braces
At Depew Orthodontics, you don’t have to have a “metal mouth”. We offer our ceramic braces to any of our esthetically conscious comprehensive care patients at no extra cost. 3M Clarity braces are the highest quality clear brackets available. They set the standard all the others try, but fail to emulate. We believe you deserve the best!
