Dear Dr. Barakat,

How do most people pay for braces and orthodontic care? I know my dental insurance and health care coverage doesn’t cover it.

— Concerned Parent


Dear Concerned Parent,

The good news is that there are many options for financing if you do not have orthodontic coverage with your insurance provider. These include:

  • Flexible spending accounts
  • Health savings accounts
  • In-office low monthly payments
  • Third party financing
  • Paid in full discounts

Now, mid-fall/early winter, is a great time to reevaluate where you stand with your company benefits before the end of the year. Dr. Barakat’s team works hard to find a solution that works for your budget. For families with multiple patients, they also offer a Family Care Program, which provides you with additional discounts. In addition, they provide a free consultation and observation period until your child is ready for treatment. This is a great way to make sure that any potential problems are intercepted, regardless of finances.

Orthodontic treatment is a long-term investment in your child’s dental health, and they’ll experience the benefits for the rest of their lives. Because each child’s needs are unique, the treatment cost is determined after examining the patient. They certainly understand parental anxiety about potential cost for treatment and have a very experienced team that understands dental insurance and flexible spending accounts, and they work with patients in designing a payment plan that fits into their budget.
