Welcome to our practice. We look forward to meeting you!
Your First Visit
Your introduction to our practice will include:
- A friendly introduction and office visit
- Completion and review of our medical and dental questionnaire
- Digital photographs of your face and teeth
- A complete orthodontic examination by Dr. Archambault and/or Dr. Morton
The following essential questions will be answered during the initial consultation:
- Is there an orthodontic problem?
- What must be done to correct the problem?
- Should orthodontic treatment begin now or later?
- How long will the treatment take to complete?
- What are the treatment fees?
- Are financing options are available?
A report from your visit will be forwarded to your family dentist.
All of your questions will be answered during the examination and consultation. If you decide to proceed with treatment, we can begin the process right away. When treatment is indicated, diagnostic records (additional x-rays and study models of the teeth) will need to be taken to allow Drs. Archambault and Morton to analyze your specific orthodontic concerns in detail and to confirm your treatment plan.
The cost of orthodontic treatment depends on the complexity of the problem and the length of treatment. Following the examination and consultation, we will be able to provide you with a precise estimate of the cost of your treatment.
We believe that all of our patients deserve a beautiful smile and we can assist you in making that possible.
- We have interest-free financing options available to accommodate your needs.
- We offer flexible payment plans that divide the fee into an initial payment with the balance distributed over the length of the active treatment time.
- For your convenience, we offer several payment methods, including Visa and Master Card, post-dated cheques and cash.
- If full payment is made prior to starting a complete treatment, we offer a courtesy fee reduction.
- A multi-patient family fee reduction is also available.
Private insurance policies vary considerably. If you have an insurance plan that covers orthodontic care, we will assist you with your insurance claim submission. As a specialty practice, we are not permitted to bill your insurance company directly.
We will provide you with a written estimate using the Canadian Association of Orthodontists Standard Form. If you have a private insurance plan that covers orthodontic care, you should forward this form to your insurer.
