Using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to pay for orthodontic treatment is a great way to save a little money. An FSA allows you to be
reimbursed using pre-tax money for your orthodontic expenses as services are being provided. For example, you can be reimbursed for monthly payment
or for the down payment on treatment. While rules for individual plans vary, generally you cannot get reimbursed for last year’s payment past their
deadline, or for services provided beyond the current plan period or year.
As a reminder, effective 2013, FSAs now limit employees’ annual contributions to no more than $2,500 per year. Melissa Bird, our financial Guru, is
happy to assist you if you have any questions regarding the use of an FSA as it applies to your orthodontic treatment.

“Smiles are a big part of a person’s identity and there’s never been a better time to consider the many benefits of today’s advanced orthodontic treatment,”
said Dr. Buchanan “With Insignia, the level of customization I’m able to offer my patients is truly exceptional, as it allows me to
design a treatment plan developed specifically to his or her unique facial structure and dental anatomy. The best part is, I can give patients, from
kids to adults, the beautiful smile they’ve always wanted, but with fewer office visits and faster results—a win-win.”
When beginning Insignia treatment, Dr. Buchanan first scans the patient’s mouth, generating a virtual 3D model
of their smile structure. Unlike most orthodontic cases, this 3D model creates a visual representation of patients’ anticipated results, giving them
a clear vision of their new, beautiful smile transformation before treatment even begins. Additionally, Insignia allows Dr. Buchanan to review and
conduct a thorough smile analysis based on each individual’s specific smile anatomy. Once Dr. Buchanan selects a customized treatment plan, she is
able to order brackets and wires tailored to each individual patient. This is unlike traditional braces that are generic and one-size-fits-all. As
a result, patients’ final smile is unique to their own dental structure. By customizing treatment based on each person’s specific facial features,
Dr. Buchanan is able to eliminate minor adjustments and tweaks throughout the treatment process, leading to fewer in-office visits, faster results
and improved patient comfort.
“Every patient deserves orthodontic treatment that is precisely customized to their unique case, making Insignia an ideal offering for anyone looking to
improve their smile.” states Dr. Buchanan.
