Your First Visit

Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is an important decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as comfortable, convenient, and rewarding as possible. We’ll use the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options, giving you the customized, individual care that you deserve.

Every smile starts with a complimentary consultation!

Your complimentary consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team and learn more about orthodontics. During your complimentary consultation, Dr. Reynolds will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms.
  • Provide a complete oral exam, take an x ray (if indicated) to determine if treatment is necessary.
  • Create a customized treatment plan.
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans.

During your complimentary consultation, we will explain everything that you will need to know about your orthodontic treatment and assist you in making the best decision for your treatment – no strings attached.

Financial Information

The cost treatment depends on the severity of the orthodontic problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options at the first visit. We strive to provide affordable, high-quality treatment that fits the budgets of our patients! Our goal at Crescent Orthodontics is to provide financial options that meet your needs to make your new smile affordable.

Insurance Information

Frequently, our patients have insurance that covers a portion of orthodontic treatment. Our office will work with you to assist with the processing of your insurance. We accept assignment of benefits from many insurance plans, as well as participate with many plans, which can offer significant savings to you. We will contact your insurance company to determine your orthodontic benefits, and will file all the necessary paperwork on your behalf to insurance company.

What happens after the initial consultation?

If you choose to proceed with orthodontic treatment, you will need to schedule your first appointment. Your first appointment is when we will place your new orthodontic appliances. Typically, this appointment is about one hour, and then you’re on your way toward your new smile!

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting our office every 6-8 weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Regular checkups last between 20-40 minutes. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments compliment your busy schedule so you will spend less time in the dental chair and more time enjoying the things you love to do.

We understand that “life happens,” so if you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you are ready to schedule your first appointment, call us at 248-427-3377. We look forward to working with you!

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, especially during your orthodontic treatment for cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
