At your complimentary consultation, a comprehensive examination is completed, and diagnostic records are taken, if needed, to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include photos of the patient’s face and teeth, X-rays, and plaster study models of the teeth. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient and will also be used in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
Once Dr. Remington has evaluated your records, your treatment plan will be reviewed with you in detail, including the time in treatment as well as the cost for your particular case.
The appointment time reserved when your appliances (braces, expanders, aligner trays, etc.) are placed is typically between 1 and 2 hours. You will then see us at regular intervals of between 4 and 8 weeks for adjustments, which can take 15 to 45 minutes dependent on what is planned for each visit. The majority of your appointments will be short, 15 minutes or less. For your convenience, these are typically scheduled before of after school. In that way, we ensure that you will only need to schedule school time appointments for those procedures that are 30 minutes or longer. 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 cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
The cost of your orthodontic treatment may vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Dr. Remington and her staff will discuss the cost of your treatment with you, as well as available payment plan options, so that you are able to make the best choice for you and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
Your smile lasts a lifetime, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best orthodontic care possible.
Patients are responsible for knowing the extent of their insurance coverage, if any, however, our office staff will submit all claims and associated paperwork as a courtesy to you. Please let us know if you have any questions about your insurance coverage and how we can help to make your entire orthodontic experience a pleasant one.
