Financial Information

It is our goal to give you the healthy, beautiful smile you deserve. We want to fill North Alabama with confident Carter Orthodontics smiles, and we make every effort to meet the financial needs of all our patients. There has never been a better time to consider orthodontic treatment, and our team is available to discuss our convenient financial arrangements with you.

Your Investment

Once your treatment plan is determined, our financial experts will cover all of the details of your investment, and will work with you to determine the best option for payment.  Fees for orthodontic treatment depend on your individual treatment plan and will vary accordingly.  It is important to Dr. Carter that payment does not become a barrier to achieving the smile of your dreams.  As such, we offer a variety of plans to suit your needs.

Financial Options

  • If you elect to pay your investment in full, at the beginning of your treatment, we are happy to offer a reduction in fee as our pay in full courtesy.
  • We provide a flexible, in-office financing plan! Our patients who take advantage of this plan enjoy interest-free payments after an initial down payment is made at the beginning of treatment.
  • Third-party financing companies are also available to discuss additional opportunities. With approval, you may be able to secure low monthly payments without an initial down payment.

Insurance coverage

As part of our commitment to excellence, we will verify your orthodontic insurance benefit prior to beginning your journey to a new smile. We include this as part of your financial presentation, so that you may determine how it affects your overall investment.  We will file your benefit on your behalf and do what we can to help you maximize your benefit.  Please note, because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts.  Should your insurance carrier not cover the full estimated benefit, you would ultimately be responsible for any unpaid insurance balance.  If you have any questions, our courteous team is always available help!
