Seeing an orthodontist for the very first time is an exciting event. At Clauss Orthodontics in Watertown and Woodbury, our new patient consultations are always free of charge.
Even if you decide not to get braces — or just want a second opinion — we’re here to answer any questions that you might have, so that you can make an informed decision about the future of your smile.
When you call us for the very first time, our staff will collect your personal and insurance information so that everything is on file at the time of your appointment. We’ll also provide you with some new patient forms to complete prior to your arrival (this saves you time and allows us to see you more quickly.)
Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to your first appointment to complete any additional new patient paperwork and start the check-in process. Be sure to bring a copy of your insurance card, if needed.
One of our treatment coordinators will give you a tour of our office and answer any questions that you might have. Then, we will take a series of digital photos, a digital iTero scan (“virtual impression”) and a full mouth digital x-ray. In some cases, we may also take a 3D conebeam scan to assess more complex bite issues. All of these images are included in your free initial exam.
After all of the information is collected, Dr. Clauss will thoroughly examine your teeth, jaws, and other orofacial anatomy. At this time, he will discuss which treatment options are available to correct your tooth misalignment. You will have the opportunity to ask questions and go over which type of braces you prefer or that work best for your situation. From here, Dr. Clauss will create a treatment plan that best fits your needs and go over length of service.
Once you’ve narrowed it down to one or two treatment options, our treatment coordinator will review the financial information with you. We are happy to work with you and your carrier to maximize benefits, limit your out of pocket expenses, and determine a payment plan that is right for you.
Depending on the type of braces that you decide to get, we can even start treatment on the very same day. If time is an issue, our patient coordinator will help you determine the best time and date to come back to start treatment!
Clauss Orthodontics is accepting new patients at both our Watertown and Woodbury locations. Schedule your complimentary consultation today.
