Your First Visit—and Afterwards
We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision. The payoff is enormous, but to get there, it will impact your (or your child’s) life for the months and years to come.
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet Dr. Kuncio and the rest of our orthodontic staff. During this consultation, we:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Go over your options, and help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss the financial side, including costs, insurance options, and payment plans
- This appointment typically takes about 45 minutes, and there is a $90 fee (often covered by insurance)
Inserting your Braces
Now that you’re one step closer to achieving a brilliant smile, let’s get you in for your first appointment. That’s when Dr. Kuncio inserts your new orthodontic appliance—be it traditional braces, Invisalign, Incognito, or another one of our many state-of-the-art options. Please call us, so that our friendly scheduling coordinator can assist you.
This appointment generally takes about an hour and needs to be done during morning hours. Our staff will be ensuring your comfort and well-being.
We’ll need to see you (or your child) every four to eight weeks. Please let us know what days and times work best for you, so we can accommodate your most convenient appointment times.
Late Appointments / Rescheduling
If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know as soon as you can. We will do everything we can to accommodate you.
We strongly suggest you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for cleanings and routine checkups—especially during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist for the best care possible.
