First Visit

In our office, we understand that everyone’s needs and expectations about orthodontics are different. That’s why we take great care to give you the individualized treatment you deserve.

When you arrive for your first visit you will be greeted by one friendly staff members. They will prepare you for your visit with the doctor by taking x-rays. Please note that you will not be charged for this and your insurance will NOT be billed for this.

If timing is right for orthodontic treatment, Dr. Noriega will design a specific treatment plan to meet your needs. The treatment coordinator will then review the fees and insurance, if that applies.

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient's problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets. If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.

The first orthodontic exam does not always result in a recommendation for immediate treatment. After evaluating your child, the orthodontist may simply want to check them periodically while the permanent teeth erupt and the jaws and face continue to grow.

During this period, we will place your child on recall, where they will be seen every six to twelve months for a re-consultation. Dr. Noriega will take new x-rays as needed, and will determine the appropriate time for braces.
