After the treatment and financial details have been outlined, if treatment is indicated, orthodontic records, that is, study models, photographs and radiographs, will be done. Separators will be placed that will stay in for a week, at which time the braces will be placed.
Your Initial Banding Appointment
The initial banding appointment usually lasts about 2 hours. The last 30 minutes will be spent giving instructions to the parent and patient. Instructions will include dietary, care and oral hygiene instructions.
Your Adjustment Appointments
Patients are seen by appointment only. Our office hours are 8:30am until 4:45pm, Monday through Thursday, with lunch from 12pm until 1pm. The office is closed on Fridays, weekends, and major holidays. We strive to see our patients on time and we ask the same courtesy of our patients. If it is necessary to change or cancel your appointment, please call the office at least 24 hours in advance to allow us to make this time available to our other patients. During treatment, your appointment will be scheduled every 4-6 weeks and appointments generally last 20-40 minutes. We do rotate morning and evening appointments as we cannot grant the request of most patients to come only after school or work.
The cost of orthodontic treatment varies and depends on the severity of the patient’s problem and therefore length of time it is expected to take to complete treatment.
We are willing to set up flexible payment plans and assist you in submitting claims to your insurance company.
In order to offer affordable orthodontic cost, there is in-office financing at no interest. Our in-office payment plan consists of an initial down payment, which can be paid over 2 or 3 months, with the remaining balance divided into equal monthly payments over the length of treatment.
