Looking for a Barrie Orthodontist?
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
We offer both in-person and virtual consultations for your orthodontic needs. Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs.
During your initial consultation, we will:
Review your dental and medical history forms.
Provide an orthodontic exam, to determine whether treatment is necessary.
Discuss possible treatment plans for your orthodontic treatment.
Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your orthodontic records appointment, which includes models, photographs and specific orthodontic X-rays. This information will allow us to devise a customized orthodontic treatment plan – especially designed for you.
Your next visit will be your treatment plan consultation where we will show you your models, photographs and X-rays as well as to explain in a clear and precise manner your specific plan. We will take the time to answer any and all questions you may have. We want to ensure that you have a complete understanding of your treatment.
Your first clinical appointment will involve placing your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about 15 minutes for small appliances and up to 1 hour for full braces. During this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible. We will also go over in detail oral hygiene instructions and care for your new orthodontic appliances.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist regulary, even during your orthodontic treatment, for dental cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
Affordable payment plans
Your smile is yours forever, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to receive the best orthodontic care whenever you need it.
The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option, so that you can make the best choice for you and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment.
Our office accepts cash, cheques, debit, visa and mastercard.
