Scheduling an orthodontic appointment may seem like completing a puzzle… there’s a lot of pieces to juggle and it could seem overwhelming to even get started. You want to find that perfect fit in your busy schedule where you can attend your orthodontic appointments with ease, and not be stressed out because it doesn’t align with your schedule. The hardest part about both a puzzle and orthodontic treatment is getting started! But, you’re in the right place at the right time! We want to assure you that at Lincoln Orthodontics, you don’t have to be stressed or worried…once you get started, it only gets easier!
Where Does an Orthodontic Appointment Fit in Your Schedule?
First thing’s first. Decide that orthodontic treatment is important to you (because it is!) and focus on that dream smile and confidence you’ve always wanted. Then ask yourself these questions:
- Where in your schedule can you fit in a consultation? Is it during your lunch break? Are you due for a day off or even a short day? Can you squeeze in an appointment before work in the morning? Are there days when you know you’ll have a lighter responsibility load?
We will work with you and your schedule. At Lincoln Orthodontics, our (free) new patient orthodontic consultations are scheduled for one hour out of your day – that’s all we need!
The Next Piece of the Puzzle: Scheduling Your Orthodontic Appointment
So, you’ve become one with your schedule and decided you actually can fit an hour long appointment into your busy lifestyle – hooray! The puzzle doesn’t seem as overwhelming when you look at the big picture and take it piece by piece! Now it’s the time that all of us at Lincoln Orthodontics get really excited about – hearing from you! Call (402) 489-8841 and let us know that you’d like to schedule an orthodontic consultation with us or click the “Free Consultation” button on our website! Let us know which days and times work best for you and we’ll work with you to make that possible. Our initial exam is scheduled for 1 hour and we take pride in running on time so you can plan your day without the variables of when you’ll actually be done with your appointment.
Expect A Perfect Fit at Your Orthodontic Appointment
When you walk into Lincoln Orthodontics, we want you to feel comfortable. We’ll make sure you’re introduced to the team and give you a tour of the office. Once you feel at home, we’ll begin your free, one hour consultation! We make it as quick and easy as possible. Here’s what you can expect to happen at your appointment:
- 3D X-ray (CBCT)
- Photos of your teeth
- An oral exam from Dr. Willett
- An explanation of your oral health records
- Answers to all of your questions and concerns
- A review of treatment options:
- Metal Braces
- Ceramic Braces
- LightForce Ceramic Braces
Once we get a general idea of what your treatment plan should look like, we’ll go over your payment options. We never want the cost of treatment to deter you from going forward with it, so we’ll do our best to find a financial plan that works just for you!
We told you we’d be a perfect fit!
Orthodontic Insurance or Not, We’ll Make it Work
Before your orthodontic appointment, gather any necessary documents that you’ll need. This typically includes your dental or orthodontic insurance information, any referral forms, and your dental history records. Having these documents readily available will help us get a better idea of oral health and what your payment plan should look like.
For people without insurance, we offer:
- No-interest, easy financing with affordable monthly payments
- Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover accepted
- Automatic monthly payments scheduled for your convenience
- Third-Party financing through CareCredit
For patients with insurance, we are happy to communicate on your behalf with your orthodontic insurance company to:
- Check orthodontic insurance benefits
- Submit orthodontic claims*
- Receive payment directly from the insurance company, thereby reducing the amount you pay upfront
*NOTE: We submit to your primary insurance. In the event that you have a secondary insurance, we will provide you with the documents you need to submit to a secondary insurance carrier.
You can trust that at Lincoln Orthodontics, we’ll be straight up with you about your treatment and the costs. Our goal is to help our patients get the smile they have always dreamed of by providing high-quality care and services, as well as make the payment and financing options as easy and flexible as possible. Your budget matters to us!
