Your smile is yours forever and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best care whenever you need it. To take the burden of filing insurance off your shoulders, our office accepts direct payment from most insurance companies. We will verify your coverage, file your claim, and follow up with your insurance company if a problem arises. We work to get the maximum benefit to which you’re entitled.

Affordable Payment Plans

Whether or not you have orthodontic insurance, we will work to structure a convenient payment plan that meets your needs and budget. We also may be able to help you take advantage of any medical/dental reimbursement accounts offered by your employer. Our practice accepts most major credit cards.

We want you to be comfortable asking any questions you may have about your insurance coverage or payment options. Please let us know how we can help to make your entire orthodontic experience a pleasant one.

Complimentary Exam

At your first visit to our office, your exam is complimentary, including a series of photographs of your teeth, bite, and face, as well as x-rays, if necessary. Dr. Scott will use this information in addition to a thorough clinical exam to look for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems (such as crowding, spacing, overbites, underbites, etc.), and develop your customized treatment plan. Each patient has different needs and your treatment plan will be designed to fit your particular orthodontic situation. Once she has a clear picture of the most effective course of treatment, Dr. Scott will discuss with you what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take, and give you a fee for your treatment. We’ll explain your treatment in detail and answer any questions you may have. This exam is at no charge to you and we will give you all the information you need to make an informed decision about starting treatment.


When you decide to begin treatment with us, your next appointment will be to get the new appliances (braces, expanders, etc) placed. Getting braces placed usually takes one to two hours. After the braces are placed, you’ll then see us at regular intervals ranging from four to eight weeks apart for adjustments. These appointments will usually take about 20 – 45 minutes depending on the procedures that need to be done.

Patient Forms

For your convenience, we will be sending you a New Patient packet with all of the necessary forms once you have scheduled your complimentary exam.
