Office Policies

Orthodontic treatment varies in cost depending on the treatment approach and the severity of each individual patient. Once you have met with one of our orthodontists and a treatment plan has been determined, your orthodontic treatment cost will be set.

At Kristo Orthodontics, we have a variety of financing options available and will be happy to review them with you and help you find the one that is best for you and your family. Treatment fees may be paid with an initial down payment and monthly installments over the course of active treatment. Bookkeeping discounts are offered for fees paid in full at the beginning of treatment. You may also contact CareCredit® to arrange finance agreements with more flexible payment variations.

We understand the benefit of flexible spending accounts and the use of pre-tax dollars. Our Finance and Insurance Coordinators will help you determine the proper timeline for starting treatment and obtaining your maximum flex benefit. We will work with you in setting up an initial down payment as well as monthly/quarterly payments to coordinate with your flexible spending program. Be sure to ask about more flexible spending information when discussing treatment fees with our Treatment Coordinator!

Also, many dental insurance plans now include orthodontic benefits. We will be happy to file an insurance claim on your behalf and help you to obtain the maximum benefits allowable. Payments can be made using three different methods:

  • Mail a check or credit card information to our Eau Claire office.
  • Call our Eau Claire office to have a credit card payment processed.
  • Stop by our office during regular business hours to complete a payment in person.
