Your First Visit

Your first visit will consist of diagnostic records, a clinical exam, and consultation with Dr. Finkelmeier where he will discuss your individual treatment options.  Next, the treatment coordinator will be happy to explain the cost and financing options for your orthodontic treatment, as we offer many flexible payment plans.

Some of the questions we can answer during your first visit may include:
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?

  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?

  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?

  • How long will treatment take?

  • What is the estimated range of costs?

  • What are my payment options?

Please assist us in preparing for your appointment by providing the following information BEFORE your first visit:
  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months- we will call your dentist to get this for you

  • Current insurance information- allows us to provide an estimation of benefits at your appointment
