Insurance & Payment Options

Boy riding bikeFees & Payments

We make every effort to keep down the cost of your child's dental care. Our fees are competitive with those of other pediatric dentists and orthodontists in the Greater Boston area.

If your child's treatment plan requires several visits, you will be given a written estimate and asked to make financial arrangements with a member of our business staff. In all cases, however, your child's treatment plan will be discussed with you prior to proceeding.

If no definite financial arrangements are made, full payment is expected at the time of each visit.



We are 'participating dentists' in Delta Dental Premier, Delta Dental Total Choice PPO, Altus, Aetna PPO, Cigna Total PPO, United Concordia Alliance, Mass Health and Elite plans and in various Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts plans. In addition, we will accept assignment from any recognized dental insurance carrier for most services. Please be sure to bring your newest dental insurance ID card with you whenever you visit.

Most dental benefit plans are negotiated between your employer and insurance carrier and are designed to cover only a portion of your total cost. Any coverage you have helps by reducing your out-of-pocket expense. Our business staff is very knowledgeable about dental insurance. They will work with you to determine the extent of your coverage and to help you receive your maximum allowable benefits. It is your responsibility, however, to pay any balance not covered by insurance.


If you need extended payments for your portion of your child's dental care costs, we are pleased to provide financing through CareCredit or Citi Health. Both offer extended low monthly payments, and both have zero-interest options for up to 12 months. You can request any of these financing options through our business staff, or you can do so directly at home by clicking either the CareCredit or Citi links on this page.
