OrthoPlan Orthodontic Payment plan, girl smiling with bracesFamilies and individuals throughout New Zealand have been hit by the financial impacts of the COVID-19 crisis, and financial uncertainty is likely to affect us for a long time to come. But if you or a family member need braces we don’t want you to have to put these plans on hold. We see first-hand how orthodontic work permanently transforms a person’s smile and self-confidence, regardless of their age or circumstances.

If you are considering orthodontics, OrthoPlan could be a great option to make it easier to pay for your braces. Whether you are looking at traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners, OrthoPlan is an affordable orthodontic payment plan that can work with your budget.

Orthodontic assessments for children as young as 7 years old can identify teeth straightening options that can be implemented early to save major orthodontic procedures in later years – and saving substantial costs. Early intervention has a great success rate for preventing problems from developing into significant jaw and teeth issues, so delaying orthodontic treatment can result in greater expense, longer treatment times and a higher degree of complexity.

How OrthoPlan Works

OrthoPlan requires an upfront payment of 30% of your treatment plan. The remaining cost of your treatment plan is then spread over the course of your treatment.

Let’s look at an example of an orthodontic treatment plan costing $6,000 for an estimated 18 months’ worth of treatment:

30% upfront fee = $1,800
Remaining fees = $4,200
18 months’ worth of treatment = 78 weeks
Therefore ongoing weekly payments for the 18 months’ worth of treatment = $54 per week

Another bonus with using OrthoPlan is that it allows you to spread the cost of your orthodontics with absolutely no interest charged.

Because your weekly payments stay the same, it is easy to set up a weekly, fortnightly or monthly automatic payment and then forget about it until your treatment is complete. It’s one less thing to have to remember.

McIntosh Dental also offers a number of alternative payment options such as GEM Visa, Q Card and Farmers Finance so there are many financing options available for you and your family.
