Dr. Scott, Dr. Stanley Werner, and our team are excited to welcome you and your family to Memphis Orthodontic Specialists, P.C.! Your experience first begins with how we treat you as a new patient from the moment you arrive. Every practice has similar technology, but every office has different staff. Our doctors and staff care about our patients deeply. Our office is specifically designed to make you feel at home. From the pictures, colors of the wall and to the floors, our goal is to create a warm and inviting feeling.
During your first appointment, our orthodontists will provide a free smile consultation. They will provide a thorough examination and discuss your treatment options with you. At the time of your visit, we ask you to bring a dental insurance card to verify orthodontic coverage if available. We will also be able to provide you a better financial estimate of your costs. Please also bring with you any panoramic x-ray taken within the last six months.
During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
At times, additional records are needed to assess a treatment plan that is specialized for you. Records are often needed to determine a treatment plan best suited for you. Records entail photos, x-rays, and impressions for study models. This in-depth planning by our doctors leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction. We will then schedule you back for a consultation visit to discuss treatment options, time frames, and financial arrangements for orthodontics in Memphis, Tennessee.
We view your oral conditions not as a math problem to solve, but the core of your self-image. We strengthen and inspire the person behind the smile in school, community, and daily activities. We are in a unique position to influence and encourage all ages, and our every hope is that we will!
