At Andrews Orthodontics, we want you to be sure that we’re the right orthodontic practice for you. That’s why your first consultation is free. We view this as an opportunity for Dr. Andrews to examine your (or your child’s) teeth and bite, but it’s also a time for you to get to know us, get a feel for our office, and feel assured that you’ll be comfortable with us moving forward. Once the visit is over, you’ll have a good idea of what the recommended treatment will entail.
At Andrews Orthodontics, about 75% our patients are adolescents or young adults, and 25% of our patients are over the age of 21. We even have senior citizens sign up for treatment with us. Basically, it’s never too late to straighten your teeth and have the smile that you’re proud to show off.
Ideally, our patients will first see us at age 7. It’s unlikely we’ll recommend braces for someone that young, but age 7 is the time we can start seeing how their adult mouth is taking shape, and can steer their development into a healthy bite and straight smile. If you’re 17, 37 or 77, and have never seen an orthodontist and want to feel empowered by your smile, the time to start is right now.
Our goal at Andrews Orthodontics is to make orthodontic treatment accessible and affordable for everyone. Every patient comes to us with different needs. That’s why we offer a number of treatment options of varying prices depending on your smile goals and your budget. So, after we develop a customized treatment plan, our treatment coordinator will go over with you different payment options to help make affording your new smile simple.
In most cases, patients choose interest-free payment plans with a fixed amount due each month. We accept most major credit cards and can set up automatic charges. We can also directly deduct monthly charges from a checking or savings account if you’d prefer.
We accept most insurance plans, and we’ll research your plan to help you maximize your orthodontic benefits. We also file claims on your behalf. If you have a flexible spending account, we’ll help you utilize your pre-tax dollars to pay a portion of your orthodontic care. That’s how committed we are to help you get the smile of your dreams.
Kids love it like they love capes.
The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children see an orthodontist for the first time at the age of 7. The main purpose of an early visit is so Dr. Andrews can check that the teeth and bite are developing correctly. If any corrections are needed, it’s easier and less expensive to take care of them early on than when their mouth is already fully developed.
For young children not yet ready to start treatment, Dr. Andrews invites those patients to join our Hero Club. Members of the Hero Club get free monitoring of their facial growth and the eruption of their adult teeth. It’s for all kids that are not ready to begin treatment or may never need it.
Participation in the Kids Club is free.
