Orthodontic Programs that Help Your Practice

Appliance Protection Program

Great Lakes understands that appliances may be lost or destroyed through the course of treatment. This obviously creates extra expense for your patient. That's why we created our Appliance Protection Program as
a type of appliance insurance. This program may also be an asset in furthering the growth of your practice. Contact Laboratory Customer Service for more information.
