New Patient Paperwork
We try to make orthodontics easy for our families, so we keep the new patient paperwork light. You can come to the office shortly before your appointment time to complete the paperwork in advance, or stop by during business hours and pick it up if you’d like to have it ready. We ask for typical dental health information prior to your first Smile Evaluation appointment.
Being part of the Gentle Dentist offices, we are also committed to gentle orthodontics, making sure you and/or your child are completely at ease before we begin the appointment. Don’t hesitate to ask the front desk staff, assistants, or your doctor any questions you have, or ask for anything you need help with! We’ll always encourage questions – and all staff members are ready to answer.
At the end of the first appointment, we’ll escort you to the Creative Smiles office to discuss the outcome of the visit and review what treatment options are available that best suit your unique needs. We’ll discuss the costs of each and what payment options are possible. Then, we’ll walk with you to the reception area to schedule your next visit, and discuss any other specific paperwork or information needed to complete your file!
At Creative Smiles, we work hard to make othodontics easy for you!
Creative Payment Options
How will I pay for orthodontic treatment?
We accept nearly any method of payment and will work with you to fit your situation. Many insurances do not cover orthodontics, or cover them minimally. We’ll work to find out what coverages you have. If you choose not to use insurance or simply want to pay out-of-pocket, or if you need to finance your dental work, we’ll work to make it easy for you. We also offer discounts on total cost of care for up-front payment.
Here are some of the methods of payment we currently accept:
- Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express
- FSA credit cards (for care beginning in the same plan year)
- Checks & cash
- CareCredit – which allows a year of interest-free credit if you qualify. We can help you get pre-approved.
