Re: Room for negotiation with Orthos?

If you go in and offer to pay straight cash, they will lower the cost. I got my Ortho treatment reduced by like $1,500 by paying straight cash in installments (no interest, $160/mo. or visit). Insurance is a betch to deal with and they reimburse less to the dentist so it's easier for them to deal st...

Re: Acceledent Device

I actually purchased a second-hand one because I was a bit skeptic too, and I figured there was less risk because I got it for less than half the cost. I've actually been pretty impressed with it. It really isn't anything more than an electric toothbrush with a mouth piece, however I was quoted 18-2...

Re: Lilone's invisalign experience

The quote I got was around $1,200 for the Acceledent unit. I actually found someone selling their unit, and bout that for less than half the price. Worked amazing, and have 3 months left a treatment! (cut it down by 6-7 months!) Honestly, the machine is very similar to an electric tooth brush, with ...
