We understand that families have many expenses, and the thought of orthodontic treatment may be quite daunting financially.
That is why here at Smileworx, we will always talk to you through the potential treatment scenarios and make sure you have a thorough understanding of the pros and cons of any approach, as well as the associated costs.
If you decide to proceed with orthodontic treatment, we’ll work with you to fit payments around your other financial commitments. For example, we may be able to stagger your treatment in phases, and we also offer interest-free orthodontic payment plans.
We’ll provide you with an all-inclusive quote in writing, which will cover everything from initial fitting of the braces and regular adjustment visits; to the removal of braces, retainers and post-treatment follow up for one to two years. This means there are no hidden surprises down the track.

Does health insurance cover braces?
If you have health insurance, you may be able to claim some of your treatment costs back from your health fund. However, many funds have exclusion periods and different levels of cover for orthodontics, so it’s important to check what you can claim before you start treatment.
Does Medicare cover braces?
Unfortunately, Medicare does not cover braces or orthodontic treatment. However, your health insurance fund might.
