Your First Visit

The Harwell & Cook team will make sure that your first visit is not only free, but comfortable, fun, and informative—we want you to leave our practice feeling excited and confident about treatment! During your appointment, you will meet our team, and we will gather information to learn about your or your child’s health history and specific orthodontic needs. We will then work together with you to create a unique treatment plan just for you. Our team will also take diagnostic images to help us get you or your child on the path to smiling out loud. If treatment is recommended, patients can often get started that very same day if convenient for them. Of course, we welcome parents to sit in our treatment area during the appointment to keep their children company. Finally, we will discuss the estimated cost for your treatment to make sure it fits into your budget.

The initial consultation will include the following:

  • Thorough dental and medical history review
  • Comprehensive oral exam
  • Photographs and an X-ray evaluation of your teeth and surrounding structures
  • Discuss financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
  • Answers to any questions you may have

Before you come to see us for your initial consultation, please take a few minutes to fill out the required health history form on our patient registration. It only takes a few minutes and will not only save time at your initial appointment but will also help us make sure you get the maximum value from your initial consultation. This appointment usually takes about 50 minutes. We would appreciate it if you would arrive a few minutes early to complete any additional paperwork. If you wish for us to help you with insurance, be sure to bring your dental insurance information—it is becoming more common for plans to offer benefits for orthodontic treatment.

Instructions

When you receive braces or treatment of any kind at our practice, you will receive detailed care instructions from your orthodontist and the knowledgeable Harwell & Cook Orthodontics team, including demonstrations on how to care for your teeth with braces, how to keep your appliances clean and in top shape, and what foods to avoid. Whether you have traditional braces, a palate expander, Invisalign®, or any other appliance, it's important to follow the instructions given to you so you can have a great treatment experience. Your instructions will vary depending on the treatment and/or appliance you received at our office—it's very important for you to review these instructions carefully. For your convenience, we also include these instructions here.

In addition to your instructions, ongoing and proactive oral hygiene while in orthodontic treatment is vital. Brushing your teeth at least two times each day, after each meal and before going to bed, is recommended—as is a daily floss. Please see our Braces FAQ for additional information about caring for your braces and appliances. Also, take a look at our Life with Braces page for even more handy information. At Harwell & Cook Orthodontics, we are always happy to answer your questions and help guide you along your path through your orthodontic care. Contact us at any of our five locations with any questions you may have, including questions about care instructions, and we will guide you over the phone or schedule a time for you to come in to see us.

Financial and Insurance Information

When it comes to choosing the right provider for orthodontic treatment, there is a lot to consider—from the doctor’s experience to the technologies they use to the way you feel when you walk through the doors of the practice. We believe you should never have to choose between the best provider and a payment you can afford.

At all five of our trusted Harwell & Cook Orthodontics practice locations, we strive to provide exceptional care with customized treatment for every patient and their family—and we also customize payments so that your care is within reach. At Harwell & Cook Orthodontics, our policy is to allow our patients to design a payment plan that fits their budget. Our patients have the opportunity to start full treatment with as little as $250 down and payments as low as $150 per month—we use a slider method that allows our patients to choose a down payment and monthly payment that works. Cash, check, Visa®, Mastercard® or specialized financing are all options. In addition, your orthodontic insurance claims will be submitted on your behalf by our office. As always, please contact us with any question you may have.
