Thanks to advances in the world of orthodontics, there’s no reason that people can’t have the smile that they always wanted. Unfortunately, the truth is that many individuals simply can’t afford to correct their underbite, crooked teeth or crossbite out of pocket. Because of this, they go through life feeling embarrassed and self-conscious.
If you fall into this category, then you’ll be glad to know that Dr. Tanya Vaysman of Upper Eastside Orthodontists has a solution for you. As an experienced and award-winning New York City orthodontist, she and her office staff provide patients with flexible payment options that are both affordable and convenient.
Here are some different ways that you can pay
for your treatment at Upper Eastside Orthodontists:
Paying over time
With this arrangement, there is a minimum down payment and the balance is paid over the course of the treatment. You also may be happy to know that there’s no interest charged as long as your payments aren’t late. To find out if your treatments are eligible for a payment plan, ask our team at your next appointment, or call our office directly to discuss your options.
If you have dental insurance, remember to bring your card with you to your first appointment. During this visit, we can provide you with an estimate as to how much you will have to pay out of pocket for future expenses. We understand your time is valuable, so we even call your insurance company on your behalf to find out what they’ll cover. As an office that cares about its patients, we want to make sure that the cost of your braces doesn’t become too expensive. We’ll even submit all your claims and do what we can to make sure you are reimbursed.
Cash, checks and credit cards
Our office allows you to pay for your braces using cash, check or credit card. Dr. Vaysman and her staff honor MasterCard, Visa and American Express and you can make a payment at your appointment or by mail.
Automatic bank draft
We know how busy the New York City lifestyle can be, and with so much going on, it can be difficult to remember everything you have to do, like make a payment for your treatment. When you authorize our office to conduct automatic withdrawals from your checking account every month, you don’t have to worry about writing a check, mailing anything or making sure you have stamps on hand. Best of all, you can say goodbye to interest charges you may have incurred due to late payments.
Automatic credit card payments
Automatic credit card payments are just as convenient as automatic bank withdrawals. Each month, we’ll charge a credit card of your choice (MasterCard, Visa or American Express) for your treatment. All you’re required to do is fill out our office’s authorization form. Should you choose to end this method of payment, just let one of our staff members at Upper Eastside Orthodontists know and we can start you on another plan.
Payment in full
If you select to pay for your treatment in full, we’ll give you a 3 percent to 5 percent discount on the total cost. It’s a great way to save some money and another way that we show our patients that we have their best financial interest in mind.
Orthodontic fee plan (CareCredit)
Are you looking for an easy way to spread your payments out over an extended period of time? If so, CareCredit may be right for you. This program is designed to make affording treatment not covered by insurance more manageable. Take up to 64 months to pay for your treatment with monthly payments as low as $110. There’s also no annual fees, no prepayment penalties or upfront costs. You can find out more about the benefits of CareCredit by clicking here.
