I have a daughter and she needs braces. We have insurance but I was going to see if there was a program that would help pay a little.. Also, she is 12 and she would like to have a pen pal about her age. Thanks camille

Be sure to talk to your insurance as a lot of dental coverage does not include orthodontics (braces). My teenager has braces and the best we could do was a get a payment plan. Look into the dental schools for discount care and treatments, and call around to get pricing.

Dental Schools or perhaps a manufacturer's Trial on a new product if you contract them.

Our insurance paid a flat rate ($3000) toward my daughters braces, then we worked out a payment plan with the orthodontist's office for the rest of it.
My daughter's 13, but she has a bad attitude, so you don't want your daughter to talk to her. Ha ha just kidding. If you don't find someone closer in age, message me and I'm sure my daughter would love a pen pal.

I have a 12 year old daughter as well. Her name is Amy and she loves art and science. She said she would like being a pen pal if your daughter is interested. Email me dat_dis@yahoo.com if she is interested and I will give you needed details.
Good luck with the braces.

We worked out a payment plan for our daughter. They did need a certain amount before they would put them on though.. And I have a neice around your daughter age I can ask her mother if she would be interested in being a pen pal! My daughter is 15 so probably not close enough in age to write her.

You'd have to check for programs in your area, but generally, if you have insurance, you pay a deductible, and then whatever the percentage is after your deductible is met (usually around 20%). If you can't afford that up front, see if your dentist/orthodontist will take a monthly installment.
