In today’s edition of Friday Focus, Dr. O, your Irvine Orthodontist at iSmiles Orthodontics, discusses why the cost of braces will vary from practice to practice.

In this edition of Friday Focus, Dr. O, your Irvine Orthodontist from iSmiles Orthodontics, discusses some of the sneaky tricks orthodontists can use to hide fees in braces treatment contracts. “Only $99 DOWN to begin treatment” sounds like a great deal.
