The Redmond Family Orthodontic Clinic at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry offers a full range of orthodontic services for children and adults. Renowned as a leader in the field, our clinic offers top-of-the-line orthodontic care. We are committed to caring for you and welcome the opportunity to work with you to create a happier and healthier smile to last a lifetime.
Located within a university-based oral health care center, our orthodontists work closely with dentists from other specialties (including pediatric dentistry, periodontics, oral surgery, implantology and restorative dentistry) to provide the most comprehensive care available.Our patients have the option of working solely with a faculty member or with a dentist training to become an orthodontic specialist. All care is supervised by a faculty orthodontist.
Our state-of-the-art clinic was designed with the patient in mind. Our friendly staff is highly trained, experienced and here to make your experience pleasant and rewarding. Please call us at 415.929.6555 to schedule your complimentary consultation.
New Patient Consultations
We are open during the pandemic, and we accept both in-person or virtual consultations for new patients.
Our clinic offers a variety of orthodontic services for all ages and treatment complexities. We offer all modern orthodontic techniques including Invisalign®, self-ligating brackets and clear braces. Your orthodontist will recommend the option that is best for you.
We pride ourselves in being the site of the first Invisalign® clinical trials and research. Many of our faculty members are considered the foremost experts in the world on the Invisalign® technique, have lectured nationally and internationally, and are involved in continual research on the technique.
Fees and Payment Plans
As a teaching facility, all of our fees include an educational discount. Treatment fees are approximately 20-30% less than fees you will find in private orthodontic practices in the Bay Area.
At your initial visit, our financial managers will discuss with you the total costs involved for the proposed orthodontic treatment. Our fees for orthodontic care, approximately 20-30% less than private orthodontic practices in the area, vary according to the specific treatment rendered.
If you have orthodontic coverage, we will assist you in processing your insurance claim form when your treatment begins. We will accept all insurance except for HMOs. We also accept California Children's Services (CCS) and Denti-Cal patients.
Payment plans are available:
Option A: Payment in Full (cash/check or credit card)
A 5% discount bookkeeping credit will be given if payment in full is made at the time that treatment starts.
Option B: Interest-Free Payment Plan
An initial down payment with the balance paid in interest-free equal monthly installments. For your convenience we offer automatic withdrawal from your checking account. We accept Visa and MasterCard.
If you decide to proceed with treatment, we will schedule a records appointment. The person financially responsible for the account must be present for this appointment and on the day treatment is started, at which time a financial agreement will be completed. This agreement will specify all of your rights and responsibilities and will describe the financial arrangements for treatment in our clinic.
If you need other dental procedures, such as fillings, oral surgery, cleanings, etc., you may have your dental care completed by your family dentist, or we can refer you to one of the other dental clinics at the school. The costs of patient services performed by other non-orthodontic personnel are charged by the clinic providing the service. We encourage you to continue your routine dental checkups throughout your orthodontic care.
