Our orthodontists use the latest techniques and equipment to offer modern braces for adults and children. Our university setting means we also have active interdisciplinary programs and comprehensive care for orthognathic surgery patients, cleft palate patients and craniofacial growth problems.


A no-charge consultation appointment is scheduled prior to any treatment. It includes an exam to determine treatment as well as discussion of fees to determine eligibility for extended payment options.

Minors must be accompanied by a parent or guardian at the first three appointments to review treatment options and give consent before services begin.

Payment options

At your initial visit, a faculty orthodontist will discuss the proposed treatment and associated costs. Once you choose to receive treatment, a second appointment will be scheduled with the person responsible for the account to complete a financial agreement.

If your insurance plan includes orthodontic coverage, we can complete and file the forms for you. 

In addition to our payment options, we offer an interest-free office payment plan, which requires an initial down payment followed by equal monthly installments to cover the balance.

We accept MasterCard, Visa, American Express and Discover.

Several payment plans are available.

Direct payment in full (cash/check or credit card)

  • Five percent discount bookkeeping credit (for full treatment cases only)

Office payment plan

  • An initial down payment with the balance paid in interest free equal monthly installments

Our office is available to discuss financial issues at any time. The telephone number for account service is (804) 828-7630.
