First Visit

Consultation Procedure:

An initial consultation with Village Orthodontics serves two main purposes. First, it gives you the opportunity to get to know Dr. Jeff and our Team. Second, it gives Dr. Jeff the opportunity to perform an initial examination to determine your orthodontic needs.

What to Expect:

If you were unable to complete your health history online, please arrive 15-20 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. Arriving early allows us the opportunity to answer any initial questions you may have, and assist you with some preliminary paperwork regarding your medical history and dental insurance carrier. One of our Treatment Coordinators will then escort you to the consultation room, where Dr. Jeff and his Treatment Coordinator will do an extensive (but painless) orthodontic examination. Dr. Jeff will explain how your teeth fit and function, review any orthodontic needs, explain treatment recommendations, and answer any questions you may have. Next, our treatment coordinator will discuss with you “Ortho 101”, a complete overview of Dr. Jeff’s treatment recommendations. And, if Dr. Jeff feels you are ready for treatment, and you are ready, we will get started with treatment. It is our goal to provide you with all the information necessary to assist you in making an informed decision about your treatment.

What Happens Next:

If you are not ready for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Jeff will recommend a growth and development check every six months. It is important that Dr monitor your dental and skeletal growth. These “recall” visits are complementary.

If you are ready to begin treatment, we will get you started with treatment, set-up a customized payment plan and schedule your next active appointment.

Payment Information:

We offer a complimentary evaluation. If treatment is necessary, we promise to provide excellent orthodontic care with financial arrangement that fit your budget. We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover cards and offer a discount for payment in full at the beginning of treatment. We offer monthly financing through Care Credit, which requires no down payment, We accept all major insurances, will file claims on our behalf, and will work with your insurance company to help ensure you receive benefits entitled to you.

Looking forward to meeting you and your family,

Dr. Jeff and The Village People
