The Cost of Orthodontia

April 26th, 2022 at 05:52 am

Today I took DS to his consultation with the orthodontist.  As the people here on the blogs told me, it will be around $6000, the amount I saved.  If we didn't pay up front the cost would be $6180, but since we are we get a 5% discount.  That is $309 off.  So our total is $5871.  Which means I have $129 to figure out what to do with.  He will be doing Invisalign, but the cost of regular braces was only $200 cheaper and I don't think he would tolerate them well, due to having a tender mouth.

Randomly, dinner tonight was delicous.  We had baked chicken that I rubbed with olive oil, salt pepper, and sazon seasoning.  Then we had herbed mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli.  Simple but full of flavor and one of my favorite meals.

    well a bit of savings is better than nothing...I would keep the extra in savings if you don't need it

    Better than nothing. I think our insurance covered $1k when DK1 and DK2 did it. I was grateful for anything. And $1k is a lot of $6k
