Getting Started

What to Expect at Your First Visit

The first visit is always the most exciting! We love meeting new patients and their families during their first visit to our office. At your Complimentary Consultation, Dr. Nee will perform a comprehensive evaluation and review your personalized treatment plan and options with you. We understand that treatment can be a large investment. Our treatment coordinator will review all financial options to find the best one that fits your budget and make treatment affordable. We understand your time is valuable. For your convenience, we will always reserve time for you to get started with treatment that same day, saving a trip and helping you avoid missing school or work. You can schedule your Complimentary Consultation online or by giving us a call at our San Marcos Location.

Payment Options

At Happier Smiles Orthodontics, it is our mission to provide ALL of our patients with affordable, high-quality orthodontic treatment options that fit your budget!

Flexible payments

Pick out the plan that is right for you.

Just as our treatments are customized, so are the options for payment.

We offer interest free in house financing with automatic drafts, as well as 3rd party financing options with no downpayment through Wells Fargo and Care Credit.

We Accept Almost All Insurance Plans

Having orthodontic insurance coverage will help reduce your out-of-pocket treatment expenses.

Most dental insurance policies cover 80% to 100% of dental work needed during a given year; however, orthodontic insurance is different. Most orthodontic policies cover 50% of the cost, up to a specified lifetime maximum set by each insurance company.
