Visiting Our Office for Your Initial Consultation
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
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer all your questions and give you the information you need to decide which treatment option is right for you.
At Reading Orthodontics, we take the time to take care of you
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we schedule your first appointment for Dr. Spyrou to place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time, our team will be available to make sure you are comfortable. If you didn’t schedule your appointment at your initial consultation, just contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you.
Scheduling future appointments
Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is a crucial part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which 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.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary, depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss the cost of your treatment and available payment plan options with you, so you can make the best choice for yourself and your smile. We always aim to work with our patients to create a payment plan that fits their budgets.
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.
If you have insurance that covers any portion of your orthodontic treatment, our office staff is always available to help you with insurance claims and paperwork. Please let us know if you have any questions about your insurance coverage, or ideas about how we can make your entire orthodontic experience a pleasant one.
** Our practice accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans. **
