Affordable Smiles

We want to fill Hamden, CT with beautiful smiles, so we make every effort to make sure your treatment fits your family's budget.

There’s never been a better time to consider orthodontic treatment, and we're here to discuss financial arrangements with you.

Your fees for orthodontic treatment depend on your unique treatment plan. Once we determine your treatment plan, our financial experts will cover all of the details of your investment.

It's important to Dr. Desai that payment does not become a barrier to achieving the smile of your dreams, so we’ll work with you to come up with a payment plan that works for you.



We’re confident that our Brace-Asuarus team can find the best solution for you because we’re in-network with most PPO insurance plans.

We’ll verify your orthodontic insurance before beginning your new smile journey. You'll see this during our financial presentation to you, so you’ll be able to see how it affects your overall investment.

How does orthodontic insurance work?

Insurance is different for every insurance carrier and their subscribers, and you'll need to look at your plan to see how it applies to orthodontics benefits.

Orthodontics insurance is different than normal dental insurance because every person on your plan normally qualifies for a maximum benefit for orthodontic services.

We’ll file your benefit on your behalf and help maximize your benefit. If your insurance provider isn't listed below, please call us at 203-281-1022 and we'll do everything we can to help you out.
