What To Expect
During your complimentary initial visit, Dr. Woolfson and Dr. Dubiner will conduct a thorough clinical orthodontic examination, involving photos and x-rays, and explain all aspects of treatment.
The Purpose of the Initial Examination is to Answer:
- What sort of problem is present, if any?
- When is the proper time to begin treatment?
- What type of treatment is indicated?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will the treatment cost?
We will also provide you with all financial information, including estimated insurance benefits for treatment.
If you’re ready to start treatment, we can start as early as the same day. We’ll communicate with your dentist to ensure a team approach to your dental care.
What is the Cost of the Treatment?
The cost of treatment depends upon the severity of the patient’s problem. The treatment coordinator will discuss fees and payment options during the initial exam if treatment is recommended. We have different payment plans to suit your budget and accept assignment from most insurance plans. We work hard to make orthodontics affordable.
