Then take all the time you need to consider your options, and when you're ready, give our team a call, and we'll help you take the next steps toward your new smile!

Can I use dental insurance?

Yes, you can! Although there's no need for dental insurance for your free new patient consultation, we're happy to contact your insurance company regarding any orthodontic benefits that may cover the costs of braces or Invisalign.
