Price comparision for Invisalign

It is very difficult to compare prices even within the US. There are many factor that contribute to the price of treatment. Aside from what the orthodontists pays out of pocket to provide the actual trays, there are other fix costs that have to be spread amongst the patients; like rent, malpractice insurence, sterilization equipment and chemicals, staff pay, etc.

Honestly based on the length of treatment and the difficultly on taking on an extraction case with Invisalign I think your fee is comparable to the US.
