We know your Time is Valuable
Your time is valuable and we have made it a top priority in our practice. We strive hard to run an efficient schedule to make sure each patient is seen promptly at his or her scheduled appointment time. Our team works very hard to carefully schedule each appointment, so our patients rarely have to wait. Also, our schedule allows us plenty of time for each patient’s adjustment and time to answer any questions or concerns you may have. We offer many scheduling options, including early morning and late afternoon appointments.
Our Office Hours
Our office is conveniently open Monday through Thursday from 7:30 am until 4:30. We are closed during lunch from 12:00 pm until 1:10 pm. We find that these hours can accommodate nearly everyone’s schedule. During regular office hours, we are always available to answer any questions you may have.
Will you please accept my insurance?
Of course! Our mission is always to provide superior service.
If you have orthodontic insurance coverage, it will help in reducing your out-of-pocket expenses for orthodontic treatment. Most dental insurance policies cover 80% to 100% of dental work needed during a given year; however, orthodontic insurance is different. Most orthodontic policies cover 50% of the cost, up to a specified lifetime maximum, which varies from company to company. Prior to your initial examination appointment, we will determine the estimated extent of your coverage. We will accept assignment of benefits and handle all the necessary steps to make sure you receive your maximum benefit. This is a service we are proud to provide for our patients.
Of course Dr. Backus, or one of our team members, is always available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to take care of your emergency needs.
Many orthodontic problems, if left untreated, can create far more costly problems in the future. The cost of orthodontic care is quite modest considering a beautiful healthy smile can last a lifetime. Although fees vary according to the complexity and time involved with each individual’s case, a personalized payment plan can be arranged for your orthodontic care that fits within your family’s budget. We offer flexible financial options to pay for orthodontic treatment, including a no-down payment financing option through CareCredit. We also accept MasterCard and Visa for your convenience.
Fact: With our creative financing, anyone can feel comfortable wearing braces. We strive hard to eliminate the financial barriers to orthodontic treatment, because we believe everyone deserves a beautiful healthy smile.
