Financial / Insurance Info
At Westlake Family Orthodontics, it is our goal to provide you with high quality, affordable orthodontic treatment options that fit your budget! We offer a variety of payment options.
- We accept Visa and MasterCard.

We go over all treatment options so that we can determine what is best for you. Our fee is all inclusive – it includes the diagnostic records, all appliances, retainers, and all appointments during the 12 month retention period.
Having orthodontic insurance coverage will help in reducing your expenses for orthodontic treatment. Most dental insurance policies cover 80% to 100% of dental work needed during a given year; however, orthodontic insurance is different. Most orthodontic policies have a lifetime maximum benefit set by each insurance company.
Prior to your first visit, we will work with you to determine what your insurance benefits include for orthodontic treatment. Please make sure you include any applicable information such as the insured ID number or social security number of the policy holder and group number.
We accept assignment of benefits from most insurance companies and take care of all the necessary steps to make sure you receive your maximum benefit. If your benefits change during the course of treatment, the financially responsible party is accountable for the remaining charges.
