WHAT TO BRING TO YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT
Print and fill out the Health History Form and take your completed form to the first appointment. Plan to arrive 15 - 30 minutes prior to your appointment time to complete the registration process.
If you have any records (particularly X-ray) taken recently, please bring them with you, or ask your dentist please to send them to us prior to your appointment.
WHAT TO EXPECT
At the first appointment, you will have a clinical evaluation performed to allow the providers to direct you to the proper clinic. The doctors will also explain and provide information about your orthodontic needs, based on the clinical evaluation. With the goal to have a precise diagnosis and to establish the best treatment plan for you, it will be necessary to schedule another appointment to take records. It usually consists in taking an x-ray, photos and intra-oral scanning. After all records and clinical evaluation, the doctors will explain which are the options of treatment, their advantages and disadvantages. Deciding to have your treatment performed by the professionals at the University of Michigan will allow you to receive treatment using the latest techniques in a caring environment.
FEES AND PAYMENT OPTIONS
The fees for orthodontic treatment vary depending on your orthodontic needs and the clinic where you receive treatment. The clinic's staff will bill your insurance, if applicable. It is your responsibility to check with your insurance carrier for coverage of your treatment. Payment or payment arrangements must be made prior to or at the time of treatment.
