Your First Orthodontic Visit
We look forward to meeting you at your first visit to our office! We understand that the thought of extensive and financially challenging treatment can be intimidating. For this reason, we offer our initial visit at no charge so that there is no anxiety or financial obligation to learn about the orthodontic options available to you.
Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 1-hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.
We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we will also use this appointment to take diagnostic records. The records include X-rays and digital photos that are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan.
During your initial treatment consultation, we will address the following questions:
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- What kind of appliance or device will be used?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
- What does the patient need to do for treatment to succeed?
The doctors will tailor treatment specifically for you. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.
If you have orthodontic insurance, please bring your insurance card. We are committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits, and as a courtesy, we will verify your insurance and give you an estimate of your costs at your first visit. We also offer two options for financing through Lending Club and Harvesters to help with any out-of-pocket expenses. Click the icons to the right to learn more.
