Why Choose Invisalign?
Your First Visit
Your first orthodontic consultation gives you the opportunity to meet our friendly team, tour the office, learn about your teeth-straightening options and have all of your questions answered. We strive to make the experience informative, fun and stress-free!
Prior to the first visit, please provide us with the following to ensure we have all of the information we need to jump right in:
Complete our new patient form before your initial consultation. You can fill it out here.
We can help you determine if your dental insurance covers orthodontic treatment and, if it does, how much coverage is offered. This will allow us to give you an accurate Invisalign or braces cost. You can provide us with your insurance information by bringing your card to our office or by responding to your Welcome Email with:
- A picture of your insurance card
- The policy holder’s name
- The policy holder’s date of birth
Come on in
We keep wait times to a minimum but if you arrive early, relax in our comfy office. A friendly team member will call you back, show you around and then take photos, including digital x-rays.
Meet with the doc
Dr. Scramstad will examine your mouth and develop a diagnosis. He’ll sit down with you and present you with his findings and your treatment options before answering all of your questions.
Discuss the details
We’ll go over the logistics of your treatment and discuss what to expect, as well as the cost. If you’re ready to move forward, we’ll work with you to decide on a payment plan that suits your budget.
Kids Can Join Our 7&Up Club!
Did you know, age 7 is the recommended age for kids to have their first orthodontic evaluation? At this point, your child’s erupting teeth and jaw positions can be evaluated. If early orthodontic treatment isn’t needed, your little one will have the chance to join our 7&Up Club and Dr. Scramstad will keep an eye on their growth during regular maintenance visits. As a club member, your kiddo will also be able to take advantage of prizes, contests and a whole lot of fun!
