We appreciate your desire to have a healthy, beautiful smile and we are committed to helping you accomplish this goal. We hope over the next few years you will have fun with us as we work together to reach our goal of a beautiful smile and proper bite.
Successful orthodontic treatment requires a cooperative effort between the orthodontist and patient. We have outlined our responsibilities so that an understanding can be reached of how to achieve the best orthodontic result.
What you can expect from us:
Fees for services associated with your orthodontic treatment but rendered by another professional office are not included in your orthodontic treatment fee. These fees may be for general dental care, extractions, periodontal therapy, physical therapy and oral surgery.
Additional fees will be charged in the event of the following: repeated failure to keep scheduled appointments, excessive breakage of appliance, extended treatment far beyond the 6 month grace period, interest charged on past due accounts, replacement of lost or broken retainers.
We can assure you that your commitment to joining our orthodontic team in achieving your treatment goals will prevent the need for the above extra fees.
As explained here, orthodontics is a long term team effort which requires commitment by all parties involved. We look forward to getting to know you better and we hope the next several years will be enjoyable and rewarding for you.
