Payments & Insurance

 We’ll help you navigate costs and benefits

One of the questions we hear most is “How much do braces cost?” It’s a difficult question to answer as every person’s treatment is unique. But we do understand that getting braces for either you or your child is a substantial investment. That is why Sawyer Creek Orthodontics is happy to work with your orthodontic insurance plan. We also offer payment options to fit your individual budget and lifestyle.

Orthodontic insurance benefit

Orthodontics is considered a benefit under many dental insurance plans. Typically, insurance will pay a percentage of any recommended treatment with a maximum lifetime benefit. Sawyer Creek Orthodontics accepts almost all insurance plans, and our insurance coordinator is here to help you understand your family orthodontics benefit.

Dental insurance and orthodontic insurance benefits work a bit differently. In many cases, dental insurance plans specify which providers are covered for general dental needs, such as cleanings and fillings. However, in most cases, orthodontic benefits can be used at Sawyer Creek Orthodontics even if we are not listed as a preferred provider.

It’s best to ask your dental insurance company whether you will receive your orthodontic benefit if you are treated in our office. Or, contact our full-time insurance coordinator, and we will make the verification for you.

Once you or your child begins treatment, our insurance coordinator will submit all the necessary paperwork to your insurance company and help you step-by-step through the process.

The staff was amazing with my 6 year old daughter. They made her first "scary" appointment fun! She is no longer afraid of coming back.
