How much does treatment cost?

Case complexity and treatment time determines cost. At our Free Consultation, Dr. Miller examines your dentition and establishes your treatment fee. Our fee includes active treatment and the retention period.

Do you have afterschool appointments?

Yes. However some procedures require more of Dr. Miller’s time and need to be scheduled earlier in the day. We strive to keep patients in school by having school calendars and bell schedules available for appointment scheduling. In addition, we use some no-school days to see patients.

Do you have payment plans?

Yes. Our Treatment fee is paid with a down payment and then monthly payments spread over treatment time.


What method of payment do you accept?

We accept cash, checks, debit cards, and credit cards (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover and Diner’s Club)


How long does it take?

Treatment time depends on the complexity of your case and cooperation. For most cases 12-24 months is normal.


Does it hurt?

Placement of the appliances and the adjustments do not normally hurt. However, after each adjustment you may feel some discomfort as the teeth move into alignment. Usually this lasts for about three days. The discomfort can be minimized by taking an anti-inflammatory medication like ibuprofen (Advil). Also, we provide wax to place over any parts that might irritate.


What color of bands are available?

We have a rainbow of colors and you can change colors at every appointment.


How often do I have to come in?

Appointments are scheduled every 4-6 weeks.


Do you do whitening or recommend whitening products?

At this time, we do not provide teeth whitening services. We recommend whitening after treatment is complete. Start with whitening toothpaste or strips.
