I have a question....not a step issue though
This isn't a step issue but I would like a feedback from everyone please. My BD12 needs braces. I have set up consultation appointments at 3 different orthodontists because I don't have ortho on my dental plan so these charges will be paid out of pocket. I'm getting rates from 3 different ones. (sounds like car insurance huh? LOL) At any rate, I've asked the receptionist taking my appointment time what the general range is since they can't give me an exact until they decide on the course of treatment...blah blah blah. They are all telling me anywhere between $4,500 to $6,000 and one even told me $6,000 - $8,000. HOLY SHIT!!!! Is this the going rate? I've never had braces so I don't have a clue but DAMN!
I called the city that my family lives in (in another state) and they told me from $1,800 to $4,700 depending on the course of treatment. Do the rates very that much from state to state?
Any feedback you have would be GREATLY appreciated! OR if you have any advice on getting a better deal than the standard 10% off for cash paying customers that would be even MORE greatly appreciated!!
