Will I have to spend a fortune on my teen’s braces?

Nope, not at Dr. Tahir’s office! We’re proud to offer a number of affordable payment options to help you cover the cost. We don’t want money to stand in the way of a life-changing opportunity.

The price of braces depends on a few factors, including the length of your teen’s treatment (based on the severity of their condition) and the type of treatment chosen.

At your first visit to our Berwyn or Oak Lawn orthodontist office, we’ll discuss your needs and work with you to create a payment plan that doesn’t stress you out.
