First Visit

Consultation Procedure

The purpose of an initial consultation is twofold. First, it gives you the opportunity to get to know us and see our office. Second, it gives Dr. Glaser the opportunity to perform an initial examination to determine your orthodontic needs.

What to expect

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to your appointment so that we can answer any initial questions you may have and assist you with some preliminary paperwork regarding your medical history. Please bring any information you have regarding your dental insurance carrier. One of our friendly staff members will then escort you to the consultation room, where Dr. Glaser will perform a simple, painless orthodontic examination. Dr. Glaser will explain the nature of your orthodontic problem, will offer treatment options for correction and will answer any questions you may have. Next, our treatment coordinator will discuss with you “Ortho 101”, a complete overview of the ins and outs of orthodontics. It is our goal to provide you with all the information necessary to assist you in making an informed decision about your treatment.

What happens next

On some occasions, the patient may not be ready for braces. Dr. Glaser will suggest that you come back to the office periodically so that he may monitor growth of the jaws and development of the teeth until you are ready to begin. These “recall” visits are also no charge.

If you are ready to begin treatment, we will schedule appointments to start and discuss your flexible payment options and insurance coverage (if applicable).

Payment Information

We offer a complimentary evaluation and screening. If treatment is necessary, our office strives to provide you with quality care that fits your budget. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards and offer a discount for payment in full at the beginning of treatment. In addition, we offer a variety of flexible monthly payment options to meet your individual needs. We offer financing through Capital One, which requires no down payment, and our staff will work with your insurance company to help ensure you receive benefits entitled to you. Our experienced staff will be glad to file your claims and help answer any questions you might have.
