Braces

Affordable braces in Sacramento, California

12/09/2008

Question:

Being a full-time college student in a single parent household I need to find braces which are most affordable for my family.

Answer:

I spoke with the American Association of Orthodontics office and they were unaware of any such program in your area. Unlike general dentistry where dentists sometimes can perform single procedures and do pro bono work, orthodontics is accomplished over several years. I usually refer to a university orthodontic program, which is not free but many times is under the costs of private providers.
