What To Expect On My First Orthodontist Visit
Your initial appointment with us is meant to be a very pleasant and informative experience. You will meet with one of our friendly New Patient Coordinators who will actively listen you your concerns and hopes. They will then take of a full series of digital photographs and any digital x-rays as needed.
You will receive a thorough clinical examination by either of our highly qualified orthodontists, Dr. Cooney and Dr. Tyner. A full discussion and explanation of our findings, treatment options and alternatives will be presented. You can be confident we will be honest and understanding regarding your treatment recommendations, answering any questions you may have.
This appointment takes approximately one hour and is provided at no cost to you. During the initial examination for each patient we will cover the basics of orthodontic treatment, explaining your process step by step. Members of our staff will be also able to discuss scheduling and financial arrangements with you.
Taking the choice to get the beautiful and healthy smile you deserve is a lifetime decision. Our practice believes that financial considerations should not be an obstacle to obtaining the highest quality orthodontic treatment.
This is why at your initial appointment, before beginning your treatment, we’ll discuss treatment fees, insurance coverage, and financial arrangements in detail. We utilize OrthoFi technology to offer customizable payment options that allow our patients to find a plan that works within their budget.
With OrthoFi you can:
- Choose the best treatment option for your family
- Design your own payment plan to fit your budget
- Adjust the down payment you are comfortable with
- View your payment plan details on your time
We are not a direct participator with insurance companies, though we do accept assignment of benefits if they are available through your plan. We offer many financial options in addition to any insurance assignment benefit, including lower down payments and flexible payment choices.
At Cooney Orthodontics, we are dedicated to offering our patients the best service and care to ensure they feel right at home starting with their first visit. We look forward to meeting you soon!
