We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Our initial examination and consultation room is designed to help each new patient become more educated about their orthodontic needs and feel at ease during their visit.
Dr. Petrick will perform a thorough examination and we will clearly explain our findings to you and answer your questions regarding treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
THE NEXT STEP
If further study is indicated, we can make the necessary records (photographs, x-rays and models of the teeth) in our office to determine specifically what problems are involved and what will be necessary for correction. These records may be made at a separate appointment.
MAKING DECISIONS TOGETHER
After studying the records, Dr. Petrick will discuss treatment options with you. He will recommend orthodontic treatment designed to provide the maximum in appearance, function, and health. Financial arrangements will also be discussed at this time.
We attempt to keep orthodontic care affordable without compromising quality. Our office is comfortable but, purposely, not large or lavish. We maintain our fees at a moderate level while not compromising anything that is necessary for excellent care.
Bargain orthodontics is seldom a value. Most families can afford the best in orthodontic care by spreading the cost over the period of treatment. Since we understand that different families have different financial needs, we are flexible in structuring arrangements. Our office will assist you in obtaining all your insurance benefits.
