My first visit
You, or your child, will go to our consultation room for your first visit with Dr. McGarrell. Our Treatment Coordinator will be in the room as well to take down the clinical findings and present your treatment fees.
At this visit, one of three outcomes will be determined:
- Treatment is beneficial now.
- Treatment is not beneficial at all.
- Treatment will be beneficial, but the timing is such that it should be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or another factor is complete; this will be monitored and a subsequent follow up appointment will be made.
If it is more beneficial to the patient to begin treatment immediately, records (photographs, digital impressions, radiographs) can be taken at your first visit.
Our goal is to not let expenses prevent you from getting quality care. Each patient is evaluated to create their individual treatment plan. Without seeing you in the office, we cannot accurately determine a cost for treatment. During your free consultation, we can provide you with an estimated quote. Our financing options include:
- Cash discounts for payments in full
- Automated no-interest bank drafts
- Family discounts
We know that choosing an orthodontist is a very personal decision. There are many orthodontic offices and treatment options available to you. Our initial exam is complimentary, as well as records (photos, study models, and radiographs). Dr. McGarrell is a Board Certified Orthodontic Specialist. An "Orthodontist" is recognized as someone who has completed an additional advanced specialty training degree or certificate (beyond dental school) of two or more years. While general dentists may legally do "orthodontics" after taking courses, they are not considered to be "orthodontists." Dr. McGarrell obtained specialty training and limits his practice to orthodontic care. Dr. McGarrell will personally evaluate your progress at every active treatment appointment.
Dr. McGarrell will personally place every band and bracket. Few orthodontic practices still offer this kind of personal attention and quality treatment. Dr. McGarrell and his team take pride in the beautiful smiles created and the close attention to the quality of work they do.
