Your First Visit

home_icon
Prior to your first appointment, welcoming information will be mailed to you including a medical/dental history form. Upon completion of a thorough examination, Dr. Wang will be able to answer the following questions:

  • Is orthodontic treatment indicated?
  • When is the correct time to begin treatment?
  • What treatment options are available?
  • How long will treatment last?
  • How much will treatment cost?

If treatment is indicated at this time, the patient will be set up for diagnostic records, which can usually be done the same visit. A records fee will be due at that time, but is included in the overall total treatment fee if the patient goes through with treatment.

Records Visit

Complete orthodontic records include impressions for study models, digital photographs, and x-rays of the teeth and jaws. This information is used to confirm initial findings and develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move during orthodontic care.

Orthodontic Consultation and Treatment Plan

After Dr. Wang has evaluated the clinical and diagnostic records, he will present his findings the treatment options in detail. All the patient responsibilities along with the exact cost, available payment plans and estimated treatment time will be outlined.

Active Treatment Appointments

The appointment when you get your appliances usually takes 45 to 90 minutes. You will then see us at regular intervals of 4 to 8 weeks. These adjustment appointments are usually 10 to 30 minutes long. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us at least 24-48 hours in advance. It may be difficult to get a convenient time (early morning/late afternoon) if you need to reschedule an appointment on short notice. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us.

Financial & Insurance

Fees and Payment Options

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s problem. Being sensitive to the fact that everyone has different needs in fulfilling their financial obligations, we are happy to provide the following payment options.

  • We offer a no-interest payment plan, consisting of an initial down payment with the remaining balance divided into equal monthly payments.
  • No initial down-payment financing can be arranged through third party lenders.
  • If payment is made in full at the start of treatment, we offer a fee discount.
  • For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards.

Insurance

If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. However, we will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
