Regular Appointments

Dr. Papandreas will see you at every regularly scheduled appointment. The visit at which you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes from one to two hours. You’ll then see Dr. Papandreas at regular intervals 6 to 10 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes.

Our regular office hours are Mondays 1-5; Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 7:30 am to 6 pm, and select Saturdays from 8:30 am to noon. Please remember all clinical procedures are completed ½ hour prior to the end of our day.

Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us.

If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Please cancel only if it is an emergency.

Payment & Office Policies

Cost

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s problem. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. Papandreas Orthodontics believes that finances should not stand in the way of a great smile. We have payment plans to suit different budgets, including a no-down-payment option. We also accept most insurance plans and we will file the necessary paperwork with the insurance company. We work hard to make orthodontics affordable.

Insurance

If you have insurance, we will help you to 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 (see 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.

Fees

In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:
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 your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a monthly period. For your convenience, we accept payment by DISCOVER, VISA and MASTERCARD. In the case of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate patients with temporary difficulties.
