After we have evaluated your records, we will conduct a case presentation. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals, and estimated fees. No-interest payment plans are available to suit your budget. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, so we provide ample time to to get them all answered.
We work with all insurance companies and will look into your policy, determine your coverage and file the necessary paperwork on your behalf.
Remember, orthodontic treatment is a qualified expense under federal guidelines for flexible spending and health savings accounts.
Frequently Asked Questions
There are five essential questions that we will cover during the initial examination:
- Is there an orthodontic problem, and if so, what is it?
- What must be done to correct the problem?
- Will any baby or permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long will the treatment take to complete?
- How much will the treatment cost?
Unfortunately, we cannot schedule all appointments for students during after-school hours. However, because most appointments are scheduled five to 10 weeks apart, most patients will miss a minimal amount of school because of orthodontic treatments. We will always make a sincere effort to meet your scheduling needs.
