The fact is that at Lakes Orthodontics we treat hundreds of patients from the Opa-Locka area on an annual basis and we are happy to do so. Yes, we are aware of the stigma associated with the city, but that is a political thing.

Don’t be fooled by ads for cheap braces in Miami. More than likely, all you are getting is cheaper service and treatment from someone that is not qualified to help you get the beautiful smile that you deserve.   Your smile is with you everyday for the rest of your life!  Make sure you choose an orthodontist that specializes in helping you to align your teeth and have a beautiful smile.

Now that we have settled the number one obstacle of why many people don’t get braces for themselves or their kids; let’s talk about why you should consider Lakes Orthodontist as for all your orthodontic treatments. For starters, Dr. Crespi is an ABO certified orthodontist; this means she has about twice the qualification of a general dentist and is the most qualifeid specialist to treat your orthodontic needs.   It is also good to point out that while many dentists who offer products such as Invisalign and call themselves cosmetic dentist are simply a general dentist. The popular ” cosmetic dentist ” designation is one that is self-assigned because there is no such specialty sanctioned by the American Dental Association. On the other hand, an orthodontist is a dental specialist who has taken the required extra curriculum, training, and certification to prescribe orthodontic treatments. Therefore, if you need braces or Invisalign then make sure you go to the smile specialist, Lakes Orthodontics and smile with confidence.

Orthodontics Insurance Coverage

Invisalign for Adults at Miami Lakes Orthodontics Will my insurance cover the cost of my braces or Invisalign? Insurance can be a very overwhelming subject for most people to understand.  After all, there are so many details that go into deciding if your insurance will actually cover the cost of your braces or Invisalign treatment. Some of the most frequently confused topics are HMO vs. PPO, deductibles, age limits, annual benefit vs. lifetime benefit, medically necessary vs. cosmetic, etc…

At Lakes Orthodontics we understand that dental insurance can often time be confusing which is why we have a highly trained professional staff that is dedicated to helping you understand your dental insurance benefits.  We want to help you become aware of some of the basic concepts that will determine your insurance eligibility.

Top 10 questions and considerations regarding insurance for your braces or Invisalign:

  • What type of treatment are you looking to have: braces, Invisalign, etc.
  • How long is your procedure (2 months, 6 months, 2 years, etc.)?
  • What is the cause of the treatment (medically necessary due to pain, a traumatic injury, or something considered cosmetic)?
  • Is your insurance a PPO or an HMO?
  • Does it specifically state that your insurance has an orthodontic benefit?
  • Is there an orthodontic benefit for the policyholder as well as dependents?
  • Are there any age limits on your policy?
  • Will the policy cover you if you are already in treatment?
  • What if you already had orthodontic treatment before as a child?
  • What happens if you change jobs/insurance in the middle of treatment?

My point here is that dental insurance can be very complex, and you should always consult with your insurance professional in order to review your benefits and coverage. Lakes Orthodontics not only accepts most major dental PPO plans but our staff reviews your insurance plan with you at the initial consultation and makes sure that they explain your details and help you get the maximum benefit from your insurance carrier.
