The COVID-19 crisis has dealt a major financial blow to New Zealanders, and many of us are facing financial uncertainty that is likely to last for some time. But if you or a family member needs braces, we don’t want you to have to put this treatment on hold.
Early orthodontic intervention has a proven success rate in preventing standard problems from developing into significant jaw and teeth issues. Orthodontic assessments in children as young as 7 years old can identify early intervention options that can be implemented to save major orthodontic procedures in later years – saving significant costs. We see first-hand how delaying orthodontic treatment can result in greater expense, longer treatment times and a higher degree of complexity.
And it’s not just the mouth that suffers with orthodontic issues. Having a beautiful, straight smile can literally transform your personality. We see self-esteem and confidence grow throughout our patients’ orthodontic journeys – which is so important for our young people.
If you are considering braces or Invisalign clear aligners, OrthoPlan is our orthodontic payment plan designed to make paying for orthodontic treatment more affordable as it works in with your budget.
How OrthoPlan Works
OrthoPlan requires an upfront payment of 30% of your treatment plan. The remaining cost of your treatment plan is then spread over the course of your treatment.
Let’s look at an example of an orthodontic treatment plan costing $6,000 for an estimated 18 months’ worth of treatment:
30% upfront fee = $1,800
Remaining fees = $4,200
18 months’ worth of treatment = 78 weeks
Therefore ongoing weekly payments for the 18 months’ worth of treatment = $54 per week
Another benefit of OrthoPlan is that it allows you to spread the cost of your orthodontics with absolutely no interest charged.
And it’s easy and stress-free. Because your weekly payments stay the same, you can simply set up a weekly, fortnightly or monthly automatic payment and then forget about it until your treatment is complete. It’s one less thing to have to remember.
