Yes! Almost all orthodontist offer payment plans. There are usually three to chosse from. 1. You will be offered a 5 to 7% pay in full discount if you pay your contract in full. 2. There  is usually an interets free office plan and a bogger downpayment and smaller monthly payments until treatment is over. 3. There are outside companies ( ie Chase or Care Credit) which offer lOWER monthly payments with some interest. These days. most orthodontist will offer Chase or Care credit INTEREST FREE.

Most orthodonists offer convenient payment options.  Typically it involves an initial payment of perhaps 20% of the entire fee followed by even monthly payments for the duration of your treatment.  Some doctors offer payment plans with no initial fee.  Most offer a discount if you pay the entire amount at the beginning of treatment.

Orthodontists most definitely offer payment plans. In fact, many prefer them. 

Many offices have both in-house financing and third party financing plans for patients to allow great treatment able to fit within any budget.

Absolutely!!  Most patients choose a payment plan with orthodontic treatment with a down payment and monthly payments that span the duration of treatment.  If you do pay in full most offices offer a payment in full discount between 5-10%.
