Office Policies

smiling brace place patient Your Complimentary Consultation Your first visit is about learning, it's about discovery, it's about meeting us and taking a fresh new look at solutions. In our office there is never a charge to give you an evaluation of what's possible for your smile.

Photos and a panoramic X-ray are taken at your first visit for ease of explanation. You will learn if treatment is necessary, how long it will take, best time to start, the cost and if there are other options. We approach teeth, jaw joint alignment, smile issues and facial balance from a positive standpoint and review the best type of braces available for you. This may well be your easiest and most informative visit to a dental office.

Getting Started There are many ways to begin, depending on your age. It could be a review of your treatment needs, a retainer, invisible braces or standard braces.

We make a model of your teeth and design the retainer or prepare braces so that when you are ready to start it's a very simple process. Parents are invited to sit chair side with their children at all of our appointments.

Your Investment Because tooth position problems get worse with time and ultimately effect jaw joints and facial balance, some type of correction is necessary. As with anything of value there is a cost involved which we call "Your Investment".

There are very few investments that are a lifetime in nature. Our Doctors believe that treatment in our office is an investment that results in a pain free, comfortable future with the best smile possible. As partners we can accomplish this lasting result.

Payment We are sensitive to the economy, individual finances and your family budget. Because of that we think in terms of prevention. We prefer using minor steps initially to solve a bigger problem in the future. The dollar amount: We have a very wide range of treatment options and fees. Depending on the nature of the correction and age of the patient a fee can vary in price from a plate of cookies to eight thousand dollars.

For Your Convenience:

  • A discount is offered if full payment is made at the beginning of treatment.
  • Monthly payments are available with no interest.
  • We take credit cards, CareCredit, and debit cards.
  • Family discounts are offered.
  • Flexible financing is available.
We will do everything we can to help you afford the treatment you need and desire.

Insurance Insurance coverage for orthodontics can be vague and confusing. We work with insurance companies daily to help determine your benefits, submit your claim and take care of insurance questions on your behalf.
