Braces

Question:

Our insurance does NOT cover braces, my husband is self employed and I work part time. Our three kids need braces, is there anywhere in S.C that offers reduced rates for orthodontic work??

Answer:

There is no dental school in South Carolina. I suggest you contact the American Association of Orthodontists at 421 N. Lindbergh Blvd, St. Louis MO 63141-7816 and give them your zip code for the nearest orthodontist to you. Then I would schedule an exam and be frank about your finances. Most offices have a payment plan that perhaps would meet your needs.
