Your First Visit (30 minutes)
Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed as you enter this new world of orthodontics. Your first visit to our office is complimentary and is designed to provide you with as much information about your orthodontic and dental needs as possible. Thank you for choosing our office for your orthodontic evaluation. We hope your visit will be enjoyable as well as informative.
Dr. Beeler will personally do a thorough exam of your teeth, bite, oral tissues, and temporomandibular joints. After this, you, your parents, and the doctor will discuss the clinical findings and any areas of concern you may have. The doctor will then recommend an observation interval or treatment options, and the financial coordinator will discuss all financial and insurance benefits with you.
Your Second Visit (30-45 minutes)
At the second visit, full diagnostic records will be taken to confirm the doctor's new patient exam. The records consist of impressions of the teeth, digital photographs of the patient's face and teeth, and digital radiographs (x-rays) of the head and teeth. Dr. Beeler will then review the records to confirm his initial findings. These records are essential in fully diagnosing orthodontic care as well as tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.
Your Third Visit (Duration 60-90 minutes)
This is the moment you’ve been waiting for. Dr. Beeler and his staff will do everything possible to make you feel comfortable as braces or orthodontic appliances are placed on your teeth. Patients are often surprised how little discomfort is actually involved in this appointment.
Regular Appointments (Duration: 10-40 minutes)
Once your initial appointments are behind you, you'll then see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for adjustments, which take ten to forty minutes. Our regular office hours are Monday to Thursday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Please cancel only if it is an emergency.
Payment & Office Policies
Please call and schedule a complimentary consultation to enable us to determine fees for your specific orthodontic case. Each person is unique and so is their orthodontic treatment. All fees will be discussed with you at this free appointment. All payment options and financial policies will be presented to you prior to the initiation of any treatment.
Our office is dedicated to caring for you and your family to help you achieve the highest quality orthodontic result possible. It is our mission to provide excellent and affordable orthodontics that can fit any budget. We are proud to offer a variety of financial arrangements to meet the individual needs of our patients, including monthly payment options. We offer plans with no interest, "pay in full" fee discounts, and family discounts and we participate with CareCredit. For your convenience we can also set up automated withdrawal from a credit card. Please note: we do not require our parents or patients to have their payments automatically deducted. Our financial coordinator can answer any questions you may have about these payment options and is eager to work with you to set up a plan that will fit your personal needs.
If you have insurance, we are happy to work together with you and your insurance company to make sure that you receive the maximum benefit possible under your individual policy. We verify that you have orthodontic benefits prior to the initiation of any treatment. When the amount of the benefit is determined, we will submit claims to your insurance carrier for payment and accept assignment of those benefits. We will be able to structure a payment plan for the remaining balance. Any unpaid insurance balance will be the financially responsible party's to pay. Professional care is provided to you, and we will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
