After the doctor has evaluated your records, usually at the same visit, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case. In certain cases the doctor may want more time to analyze your records and a second appointment may be needed.
Getting braces on and off
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes from one to two hours. We try to limit the time that needs to be taken off of school and work and ask that these longer appointments be scheduled during the day at non-peak times. This allows the majority of your visits to be scheduled before or after school/work.
You'll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Our regular office hours are Mon-Thurs 8-5pm. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you are late for your appointment you may not be seen or may have to wait until we see all of our scheduled patients for that time. If we are running late, we will make an effort to inform you as soon as possible and will be happy to reschedule you at your convenience. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Cancel only if it is an emergency. It is difficult to reschedule you since most appointments are made 4 to 8 weeks in advance, and your overall treatment time may be extended if you need to reschedule.
Payment & Office Policies
The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets. We also accept assignment from most insurance plans and we will file the necessary papers to the insurance company. We also offer discounts for Military, Senior citizens and multiple family members. We work hard to make orthodontics affordable.
In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
