What To Expect On Your First Visit

We will ask you to complete a medical history sheet and patient information form, which we will send you prior to your first appointment. On your first visit, Dr. Luce will conduct a thorough orthodontic examination. She will give you her professional opinion of whether treatment is needed at this time or in the future. She will also give you an estimate of the fee. There is no charge for this initial exam. Orthodontic records (x-rays, photographs and impressions of the teeth) can be taken at this time. A separate appointment will be arranged for a follow-up treatment conference to initiate treatment, and to fully explain your or your child's treatment plan.



What about costs?

While it's important to keep in mind the lifetime value that orthodontics offers, we know you have specific cost questions, so don't be afraid to ask. We will be happy to discuss fees. You may discover the price tag is considerably lower than you ever thought. Cost, of course, depends on the nature of the problem. We offer a variety of payment plans to help meet individual financial needs. In addition, many dental insurance plans now include orthodontic benefits for just a few dollars a month. We will be happy to assist you in determining your insurance benefits.

We offer the most state of the art orthodontic appliances including:

  • Removable Appliances
  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Friction Free Bracket Systems
  • Esthetic/ Ceramic (Tooth-Colored) Braces
  • INVISALIGN® and other clear aligners
  • TADS
