What to Expect

Initial visit

At this visit, Dr Faleye and staff will

  • Take a panoramic radiograph.
  • Listen to your needs and concerns
  • Examine your teeth and jaws
  • Discuss the treatment options and the treatment process
  • Discuss the payment options and insurance benefits
    and implement a payment plan.

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.

Financial information

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
.
Orthodontic Fee Plan OFP is available for patients who qualify. OFP is a financing plan which offers payment arrangements with no down payment and monthly payments for up to 60 months, with a competitive interest rate. You can visit their website at www.orthofeeplan.com

  • For your convenience, we accept payment by cash, check, Visa and Mastercard
  • As a bonus for our patients, there is a 5% bookkeeping discount if payment is paid in full before or at initial placement of braces. There is also a multi-family member discount.
  • As a way of saying thank you for patient referrals, one month credit is applied to accounts of patients who refer their friends and family that start orthodontic treatment.


Appointments

Patients are seen by appointment only. Our office hours are 8:30-5pm, Monday through Thursday, with lunch between 12 pm and 1. 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 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.
