Dr. Bradley Pierson and Dr. Kristin Saunders want you to receive the quality orthodontic treatment you seek without feeling limited by your financial situation. Fees are assessed based on the complexity and amount of time required to treat each orthodontic case.

In an effort to make orthodontic treatment affordable and control orthodontic fees while maintaining the highest level of professional care, our orthodontic practice in San Antonio, Texas, has established our financial policy as follows:

  • A bookkeeping courtesy is offered for payment in full at the beginning of treatment.
  • As a convenience to our patients, a financial arrangement can be made to extend your payments over a period of months at no interest, following an appropriate down payment.
  • Also, for your convenience, we accept Visa, MasterCard®, Discover® and American Express.


If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims.

To help us with your insurance filing, please complete the insurance questions on our questionnaire.

Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges. If you have any questions about insurance or our other financial options, please feel free to contact our friendly orthodontists and orthodontic team at Pierson & Saunders Orthodontics. We are happy to assist you!
