We will partner with you to help you claim your orthodontic benefits, and assist in any way we can to file your claim and handle insurance questions that may arise. After receiving your insurance information, we will prepare and ask you to review your orthodontic claims prior to submission.

Billing and Financial Responsibility:

Please call our office if you have any questions regarding an invoice; we will be happy to assist you.


The cost of teeth straightening treatment depends on the complexity of the case and the duration of treatment planned. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets, including a no-down-payment option. We work hard to make orthodontic care affordable.


In an effort to keep fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established the following financial policy:

  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa, Discover Card and MasterCard.
  • In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate patients with temporary difficulties.

Your smile could not be in better hands than with Dover orthodontist Stephanie Steckel, DDS, MS. For more information, call 302.672.7776 or use our convenient online Request an Appointment form.
