We offer NO COST initial orthodontic exams and evaluations. Plus, your treatment plan will include a breakdown of all applicable fees. We will inform you of every single cost before treatment is administered. Dr. Prentice cares about making orthodontic care affordable for you or your family.
Cost of Orthodontic Treatment
A confident smile frames the way you communicate and share your ideas, so don’t let crooked teeth stand in the way of who you really want to be in the world. The price of orthodontic treatment varies on a case-by-case basis. The type of correction needed, the duration of the treatment, as well as the type of device used (e.g. braces, aligners, etc.), also factor into your total cost.
But this doesn’t mean that orthodontic treatment is outrageously expensive. A survey by the Journal of Clinical Orthodontics via Colgate shows that the average price of traditional braces and Invisalign aligners runs between $2,500 to $6,000. It really just depends on the procedure and appliances used.

Insurance, HSA’s, & Discounts
Orthodontic Treatment Insurance
Dental insurance with orthodontic benefits is common and usually covers a portion or percentage of treatment costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Just remember that insurance policies vary. Please ask your employer or insurance provider about your coverage details or simply reach out to us. We can find out specifically what your insurance covers, and whether you must choose from your insurance company’s orthodontic (in-network) providers. We can also help you find orthodontic insurance coverage. We accept many different insurance providers. Our team will work with you to find the best payment options available. Call us today to set up your initial appointment and consultation.
Health Savings Account
You can use a health savings account (HSA) to cover the cost of your treatment at Prentice Orthodontics. In fact, orthodontic procedures are the perfect reason for using health savings account funds. HSA Store’s helpful advice section notes that many people believe orthodontic treatment is only a “cosmetic” procedure and must be paid out of pocket. But leaving teeth unfixed can severely affect overall health. If a medical professional, like a doctor, dentist or orthodontist, recommends that you receive orthodontic treatment, your HSA can (and should) be used. Please talk to us to find out more.
Saving you money is one of our biggest priorities. We offer several discounts and can help find out which one is available to you and flexible payment schedules. If you do not have insurance, but decide to pay your bill in full for comprehensive treatment, we offer a five percent discount. We also offer a family discount after one family member signs up for treatment with us. Lastly, if you have in-network insurance, you will receive an in-network discount if your dental insurance fees are less than our own fees. Contact us with any questions you may have about discounts.
We will consult with you every step of the way after your payment is processed. We will have you fill out a simple contract that allows us to move forward with your orthodontic treatment and set you on the path of a beautiful, healthy smile.
