Fees for comprehensive treatment vary greatly depending on the nature and severity of the presenting problems, the age of the patient, the treatment method, the type of appliances used and the anticipated treatment duration.
During your visit, we’ll discuss with you the cost of your treatment, and each of your available payment plan options, so that you are able to make the best choice for you and your smile. We offer an interest free payment plan from as little as $50/week. A contract is arranged usually over 24 months. At Smile Envy we utilise the services provided by DentiCare who are a payment solutions company.
Payment can also be made upfront at the start of treatment, if you wish. The treatment fee is reduced for this option because there are no administration fees. Payments can be made by cash, cheque, direct debit card or credit card.
If your health insurance policy covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs.
Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. We strongly advise that you seek advice from your health fund regarding the rules governing your insurance. We will provide you with a list of Q’s to ask you Health Insurer so you can obtain the maximum benefit for the treatment required.
Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.
