First Visit

During the first visit, we take diagnostic orthodontic records which include x-rays and photographs of the patient’s teeth. These records assist the orthodontist in studying the position of the jaw and teeth and make a thorough diagnosis.

After records are taken the orthodontist will do a short intraoral examination and then present the available treatment options. After discussing any questions and concerns, a treatment plan will be made. Our orthodontists value your input at this critical point of planning and throughout treatment

If the patient is ready to begin, small rubber spacers will be placed between the back teeth to provide space for orthodontic bands and allow us to start treatment at the next visit.

Insurance and Financial Information 

Financial Information

In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established our financial policy as follows:

  • If you pay in full at the onset of treatment, we offer a fee discount. If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.
  • To fit the needs of our patients, a financial arrangement can be made to extend your payments over a period of months following an appropriate down payment. There are no interest fees for these payment plans.

In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate our patients with temporary difficulties.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover Card, American Express, and Care Credit.


If you have insurance, we will help you determine available coverage. We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us. We can arrange for the payment of the balance to be paid as listed above. The insurance company is responsible to the patient, and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will assist you in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

Please ask if you need more information about our financing or payment options. We will work with you to determine the option that best suits your needs.

Everyone deserves a beautiful smile, and we want to help you get the smile you always wanted.
