Life is made up of a whole series of “firsts” – from our first steps and words to the first time we ride a bike or drive a car. But even exciting milestones like these can leave us feeling a little nervous and apprehensive before we achieve them! When you’re not sure what to expect, the unknown can be a scary process. Here at Booth Orthodontics, we know choosing orthodontic treatment is a big decision, and that taking the first step towards a healthier smile can feel overwhelming even though it’s something you’re looking forward to. Your first orthodontic visit with us is one of the most important, and we want this initial appointment to be an exciting, rewarding experience. This is our chance to “wow” you and we don’t take it lightly! Let’s take a look at exactly what you can expect from your first visit to our Homer Glen office.
Getting started on a new smile
Your first visit with Booth Orthodontics is always complimentary. After a warm greeting, you’ll be shown around the office and meet some of our talented team! If time allows, we’ll take a series of diagnostic photos and x-rays before one of our doctors completes a thorough examination. By reviewing your dental and medical records, any photos and x-rays taken, and the results of your exam, our doctors will be able to make a proper diagnosis. If orthodontic treatment is recommended, they will also be able to create a customized treatment plan for you. This will be discussed during your appointment, and any questions you have will be answered.
Your personalized treatment plan
Besides diagnostics and an exam by one of our doctors, our team will also walk you through what you can expect at different stages of the treatment process. This can include:
- how we believe orthodontic treatment will benefit you and your smile
- how long we expect your treatment to take
- how much your treatment is likely to cost
- our available payment plans and financing options, as well as insurance information
Once you’ve discussed your options and decided on a treatment plan, we’ll go over the total investment in your new smile. Each patient we treat comes with their own specific needs, so treatment costs will vary on a case-by-case basis, but the total will include all fees for diagnostic records, treatment visits and appliances, one set of retainers, and a year of retention visits following active treatment. This will all be laid out in detail before any treatment ever begins.
We know that orthodontic treatment can place a burden on your budget, but we’ll always work with you to find a payment plan that works for you and your needs. We also offer payments through online, automatic withdrawals, or on your credit card. For added convenience, you can check your account, make payments, and schedule appointments online as well. We can even work with you to coincide our billing cycles with your pay periods, just to eliminate any stress!
Our team is happy to file and manage your insurance claims for you and answer any questions you have. We’re committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits and will make it as easy as possible for you to receive the orthodontic care you need.
The next step on your path to a healthier smile
Once your initial exam is complete, you’ll schedule an appointment to officially begin your orthodontic journey. This will usually be the day you get your braces put on or receive your first clear aligner. The appointment will last about an hour, and our team will be on hand to answer all of your questions and address any concerns you may have. You’ll also receive a free Oral B/Braun electric toothbrush and a number of tooth brushing aids to help maximize your oral health. Our team is here to help you feel as comfortable and relaxed as possible with your orthodontic experience, from start to finish!
Why you should choose Booth Orthodontics for your first orthodontic visit
Our talented team works hard to make our office a fun place to visit! You’ll always be greeted with a smile and we love chatting about your day and what you’ve been up to in between visits. But that’s just one reason to choose us for your first orthodontic visit. When you choose treatment with Booth Orthodontics, you’ll also receive:
Treatment that is personalized, comfortable, and efficient
As a father-and-son team, we want our patients to feel like family, too! We also take care to offer only the most efficient treatment. We use wire alloys developed by NASA, digital 3D X-rays that are completely safe, digital impressionless scanners, and other cutting-edge technology to keep your comfortable and give you the best results.
Dr. Ryan and Dr. Barry Booth are orthodontists, meaning they’ve been through both four years of dental school and three years of orthodontics residency in order to practice orthodontics. As dental specialists, they are trained to treat orthodontic issues expertly and successfully.
Affordable payment options
As mentioned above, we offer affordable payment options to meet your family’s budget. There are even interest-free payment plans to spread the total cost over the total time you spend in treatment.
We’re Invisalign experts! Our office uses comfortable and impressionless scanning to give you better-fitting aligners with more accurate tooth movement. For those who qualify, Invisalign can give you a smile you love without the brackets, bands, and wires that come with traditional braces.
