What is the S.P.O.T. Program?
The S.P.O.T. program was designed to benefit our patients by creating a custom savings program that allows you to start planning for your child’s future orthodontic treatment at an early age, in order to help minimize the financial impact it may have. We know that even with our affordable payment plans and your insurance benefits, adding one more payment to your budget can seem overwhelming. At Alabama Orthodontic Group, we are dedicated to making orthodontic treatment affordable, and we want to help!
Look at the chart to see how you can save (and earn!) while you wait for the optimal time to begin treatment with Alabama Orthodontic Group.
How do I enroll and begin saving?
As early as toddler age you can start your S.P.O.T. program, for as little as $25 per month! It’s simple! All you have to do is set up an automated monthly contribution with a minimum 6 month enrollment, and the SAVINGS will BEGIN! Select the amount you would like to invest each month (Note: this amount cannot be changed one the S.P.O.T. contract is signed) Alabama Orthodontic Group will deposit your contribution into an FDIC secured escrow savings account. You will then be able to apply your accrued savings towards a down payment when beginning treatment or apply it to lower your monthly payments, it’s up to you!
Enroll in our S.P.O.T. program today and Alabama Orthodontic Group will match 20% of your total investment up to $700 when your child is ready to start treatment. For example, if you deposit $2,000 into your account, we will deposit $400 into your account when orthodontic treatment is initiated.
What are the benefits of participating in the S.P.O.T. program?
As early as toddler age, you can plan ahead and put money away for future orthodontic treatment.
