Affordable smile



I am a student, and I do have dental insurance but im sure it doesnt cover that much on braces. I really cant afford expensive braces right now but can pay montly installments. Are there orthodonists who have these types of payment plans? As well as I have heard of some programs through The Ohio State University. Any knowledge of that? Any useful information would help.


All orthodontists have payment plans, mostly without interest. I am sure you can work this out. Make sure it is a trained orthodontic specialist and that can be checked with the American Association of Orthodontists in St. Louis, Missouri. At Ohio State they also have a budget plan but there may be a waiting list. Call 614-292-9100 for more information.
