Hello, my name is Denise Labonte. I have been a treatment coordinator , working with Dr. Lalani, since 2009. It is a great privilege to work with this amazing team in creating beautiful smiles every day. What I love the most about my job is having the chance to meet and interact with the new families that come to our office. It is a real pleasure! I am committed to guiding new patients through their treatment decisions in an informative and helpful way. Welcome to our office!
Hi there! My name is Tayler Moon and I am a Certified Level II Dental Assistant and a Registered Dental Hygienist. I currently work in the lab and clinical area of the office as a Dental Assistant. You will find me in and out of the lab, making the appliances and retainers that our patients wear! My favourite part of the day is interacting with patients, educating patients on how to care for their braces and being able to assist in creating a lifelong beautiful smile! I really love what I do, and I look forward to helping you achieve a gorgeous, healthy smile!
Hello, my name is Debbie Tofflemire. I am a Level II Dental Assistant and you will meet me in the clinical area of our office. Before you have braces, we take impressions of your top and bottom teeth. Something unique about impressions is that we have different flavours to choose from. My favorite flavour is butterscotch, because it smells just like the werthers candy, but you’ll get to choose your own flavour. I can’t wait to meet you and see what flavour you will pick!
Welcome to our Orthodontic Practice! My name is Beth Stein. I have had the good fortune of working with this unique and dedicated team of professionals, for over twelve years. I will see you as soon as you arrive in our office, since I work in the front desk area. I am truly amazed by the beautiful, confident smiles we are able to create. I look forward to greeting and welcoming you to all of your appointments in the future!
Hi! My name is Nicole Testani. I am a dental hygienist. I position wires and braces, and adjust them at every appointment, in order to help your teeth move in to place. Working at our Orthodontic office fits my personality perfectly because I love making all things beautiful! Whether it be adjusting your smile to perfection, or decorating the office, I really enjoy everything that I do! We really try to have fun in our office, and I hope that you will be able to see that for yourself when we meet you!
Hi! My name is Karen Goodchild. I am a Dental hygienist with over 20 years experience in this orthodontic practice. You will meet me in the clinic area of the office. This is where your fun and energetic journey of placing and removing braces and appliances, as well as changing arch wires will begin. There are many times that you will not see me, but I’m sure you will hear my infectious laugh. It is a pleasure to provide each patient with a positive orthodontic experience while creating beautiful smiles to last a lifetime!
At your first visit with us, please plan on spending at least 60 minutes in our office. We have planned this appointment during times when Dr. Lalani is able to give uninterrupted time to answer all of your Orthodontic questions fully.
When you first arrive our treatment coordinator will take a series of Orthodontic photographs and a panoramic x-ray (unless one has been provided by your Dentist). Dr. Lalani will then complete an examination of the facial contours, the bite and tooth alignment. Preliminary findings and the most likely course of treatment are then explained by Dr. Lalani.
Our treatment coordinator will then spend time clarifying the proposed treatment and assisting you by providing written information that you can take home for a more in-depth perusal. She will also provide you with a written estimate of cost and explain how financial arrangements are handled.
To confirm the diagnosis made at the first visit, an appointment to complete Orthodontic records is necessary. Records consist of study models of the teeth and bite and a x-ray(s) of the jaws along with the Orthodontic photographs and panoramic x-ray taken at the initial visit.
We often can complete the records on the same day as your initial visit, if this is convenient for you. We also would be happy to schedule a separate appointment for the records if this is more appropriate for you.
Once the diagnostic records have been carefully analyzed by Dr. Lalani, we will thoroughly discuss your orthodontic needs and treatment sequence. If the course of treatment is exactly as outlined at the initial examination this appointment is not always required. For those individuals whose treatment involves removal of permanent teeth and/or surgery this appointment is very helpful to clarify treatment needs and sequencing.
The cost of Orthodontic treatment varies with the type of Orthodontic problem, the type of treatment required, and the time and expense necessary to diagnose, achieve and maintain a great result.
Payment plans at 0% interest are available for treatments that take longer than 6 months. A full fee schedule will be provided prior to starting any treatment and is given at the initial visit if treatment should be started within the near future.
If you have an insurance plan, we will be happy to fill out the appropriate Orthodontic predetermination form and claim forms that you will need. Not everyone's insurance coverage is the same for Orthodontic treatment. Due to this, the patient is required to make the fee schedule payments directly to the Orthodontic office. The insurance company will then reimburse you according to the terms of your contract with them, once you have sent them your claim form.
