About Our Orthodontic Office

Happy patient with bracesAt Owens Orthodontics, we provide a level of personal attention that enhances your care and gives you true confidence during the course of treatment and in your expected results. Start with an initial consultation where Dr. Owens will listen to your concerns, offer his professional opinion, and work with you to create a course of action specific to your goals and lifestyle.

With such a high level of personal attention as well as open communication and collaboration with your dental team, you will be well-informed throughout your entire treatment plan. Know that both Dr. Owens and our staff are friendly and personable, and committed to open and honest communication. You will always be well-informed of what is happening and what to expect, as we provide that extra level of personal care and communication to ensure that patients are comfortable and confident.

Your First Visit

During your first visit to Owens Orthodontics, an initial exam will be performed where Dr. Owens will listen to your concerns and create an outline of limited problems that determine the severity of your case. Working as part of your dental team, you and Dr. Owens will decide on a treatment plan that best addresses your orthodontic needs. Any questions you may have are encouraged to be asked before, during and after the initial exam at our Denver orthodontic office.

After the initial exam, further diagnostic records will be needed to finalize a treatment plan. Complete diagnostic records typically include a medical/dental history record, clinical examination record, photos, plaster study models of the teeth, and X-rays. To save yourself from an extra visit, the diagnostic records can often be done the same day as the initial exam if you elect to do so. If not, they can always be scheduled for a later date. An estimate of treatment cost will be assessed and given at this time as well.

Consultation

Once Dr. Owens has evaluated your diagnostic records, your treatment plan will be discussed in more detail during a consultation appointment. The journey to attaining your new beautiful smile will begin promptly after this consultation.

Regular Appointments

The appointment necessary to get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) on typically takes anywhere from one to two hours. Once that occurs, you will see us at regular intervals of four to eight weeks apart for an adjustment, which usually take 20-40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only, and we make every effort to be on time for our patients. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us as soon as possible, but please only cancel if it is an emergency. Appointments are made about four to eight weeks in advance, so rescheduling missed appointments may be difficult.

Payment and Office Policies

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s case. We work hard to make orthodontics affordable and feasible, and you have the opportunity to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We offer payment plans that suit different budgets, and we also accept assignment from most insurance plans, and file the necessary papers to the insurance company.

In an effort to keep our 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.
  • To fit your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by Visa®, MasterCard® and Discover®.
  • In cases of serious delinquency, treatment will be discontinued, although we will make every effort to accommodate patients
    with temporary difficulties.

Insurance

If you have insurance, we will help you 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 because our patients are our top priority.
