Visit our Office
Box 159, 11 John Street,
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.
