Your First Visit
What to Expect at Your Initial Exam
We pride ourselves on giving you the time you deserve. Please allow an hour for your first exam and consultation. We will take x-rays, photographs, and Dr. Christiansen will perform an orthodontic examination. Feel free to ask questions! After a treatment plan is established, we will discuss applicable fees and payment options.
Fees and Payment Policy
In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established our financial policy as follows:
- If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount. If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.
- To fit the needs of our patients, a financial arrangement can be made to extend your payments over a period of months following an appropriate down payment.
- For your convenience, we accept all major credit cards.
- A loan from your bank or credit union is another resource for payment.
In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate our patients with temporary difficulties.

If you have insurance, we will help you determine the coverage you have available. We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us. The balance will be arranged for you to pay as listed above.
Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
