Finding a new orthodontist for my braces

I left Chicago without finishing up my braces (there really is no way I can go back due to the violence and stalking issues I had back there). I am now looking for a new orthodontist who will finish up my braces or at least remove them in LA. But I heard it's really expensive to get a new orthodontist. How should I go about getting one that I can afford?
