We accept most dental insurances. We can also work with you on making payments to cover your treatment.
We may contact you before your scheduled visit for confirmation. To cancel or reschedule your appointment, please contact or call us within 24 hours.
Your First Visit
We can’t wait to welcome you to our office! Upon your arrival for your consultation, you will be greeted by our helpful and experienced staff.
Our orthodontist will conduct a thorough clinical orthodontic examination and explain all aspects of treatment. The purpose of the initial examination is to answer:
- What sort of problem is present, if any?
- When is the proper time to begin treatment?
- What type of treatment is indicated?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will the treatment cost?
If orthodontic treatment is indicated, an appointment for diagnostic records will be scheduled. If time allows, these diagnostic records can be taken during the initial visit. They include:
- Digital photographs of the teeth and face.
- Study models of the teeth.
- Panoramic and cephalogram radiographs.
What You Take Home
You’ll receive a braces care package with everything you need to maintain your braced and ready smile. Wax for braces as well as a container for rubber bands which are a crucial part of the treatment.
