Ok. So I’m going to keep it short because we all know how exhausting the braces communication can be. So here we go....
SD needed braces. No question. However BM never communicated that she was seeing an orthodontist. We were informed that such an appointment took place via text demanding a 2700$ payment be made ten days after the text. Whatever. It is what it is. Would we like more notice? Obviously. Would we like to know that she had an appointment? Of course.
My issue isn’t with any of that. It’s status quo. Zero information until a bill is due blah blah blah. No changing it.
My issue Is with the fact that BM set up a 30 month payment plan for the braces. So how and why was it soooooo necessary for us to send a payment for half of the amount when she has tiny monthly payments set up for the next 2.5 years?!?!
Anyone have any experience with how those payment plans work with the ortho? The statement said $0 was required as a deposit etc. I just don’t understand what benefit it would have given BM to demand a payment like that?!
