Financial Options

Payment Options

For your convenience, we accept cash, personal checks, money orders, and most major credit cards. We also offer a flexible payment plan. Please see our Financial Coordinator for details.


 Because financing your orthodontic care should not be an obstacle to a beautiful and healthy smile, we offer a variety of financial benefits and payment options.

  • No charge for initial exams
  • Discounts for multiple family members*
  • Flexible down payments and monthly payments
  • No interest payment plans that range from 12 to 36 months**
  • In-house financing**
  • VISA and MasterCard payments

The beautiful thing about in house financing is that there is a small initial down payment and your financing is interest free! You can get started right away! What’s stopping you?


Insurance

As a service to our patients, our practice accepts most dental insurance programs, including non-managed care, indemnity (traditional) and PPO out-of-network.  We are not part of any managed care network.  Our accounting staff will prepare all the necessary forms for your dental benefits. However, we remind you that your specific policy is an agreement between you and your insurance company. Please keep in mind that you are responsible for your total obligation should your insurance benefits result in less coverage than anticipated. Our staff will gladly submit a pre-treatment estimate to your insurance company so that you will know what your benefits will be.

The fees charged for services rendered to those who are insured are the usual and customary fees charged to all our patients for similar services. Your policy may base its allowances on a fixed fee schedule, which may or may not coincide with our usual fees. You should be aware that different insurance companies vary greatly in the types of coverage available. Also, some companies take care of claims promptly while others delay payment for several months.


Testimonials

Dr. Hernandez is, hands down, the nicest orthodontist I've ever dealt with. In fact, I don't even want to limit it to the dental profession. She is the nicest doctor I've ever met. Her smile is contagious. And that's fitting, considering she's fitting braces on people to make their smiles better.
There is not a more professional person in the field, and I'm happy to have met her.
For anyone considering where to go, this is the place. It's not only worth making the trip if you live in Escondido or the surrounding areas, but...even if you lived 100 miles away, you'd be wise to make the trip there.

Dr Hernandez is the absolute best!! I cant say enough good things about her. She is a perfectionist and she is very accommodating to say the least. Even if I call the office after hours she is sure to contact me right away on her cell. She is one in a million and I highly reccommend her!!!
