Simple first steps toward future smiles.
What to know about your first visit.
So you’re thinking about booking your first visit with the Owl team and wondering what to expect. Here’s a short rundown of exactly what will happen when you come into any one of our five offices. And if you’ve already made an appointment, awesome! Hit the buttons below for the forms you’ll need to fill out prior to meeting with our team.
Tour the space.
When you arrive, you’ll be introduced to one of Owl’s knowledgeable treatment coordinators. We want every patient to be at home at our practices, so you’ll be shown around so you can get a feel for the place. Have questions? Ask away—that’s what we’re here for.
After a short tour, you’ll be introduced to one of our orthodontists who will review any dental records that have been provided and do an initial exam. Nothing to be nervous about and nothing painful—just a short assessment.
Explore treatment options.
After your exam, our orthodontists will have a pretty clear picture of what the best option (or options) is for you. We’ll talk through those together and answer any questions about the pros and cons before we get into more practical considerations.
Committing to orthodontic treatment is a big step for many families, both from a time investment standpoint and a financial one. We’ll answer key questions like how long treatment will take, how much it will cost, and explore payment options so there are no surprises down the road.
Ready to get started?
We’re betting there a few other things you’d like to know—things like insurances we accept, payment options, and the like. And here they are. If you have any specific questions about your insurance provider, don’t hesitate to get in touch.
What kind of insurance do you accept?
Owl participates with most major insurance companies. If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, we’ll be able to determine that using the information you provide on your First Visit form. We can also help coordinate payments through your flexible spending account, if you have one, and will handle filing all your claims once treatment is underway.
What type of payment do you accept? Do you offer financing?
- Cash, including money orders and personal checks.
- Credit, including VISA, MasterCard, and Discover.
- Flexible Spending Account via your insurance plan.
- Orthobanc is a helpful service that will electronically draft your monthly payments from your checking or savings accounts or credit card. (Bonus: This service allows Owl to offer in-house financing interest-free!)
- CareCredit is a third-party option that can help you finance your treatment.
What forms will I need to fill out to get started?
So we can have the most productive first visit together, please fill out and submit both the First Visit and the applicable child and teen or adult form electronically before coming in. This will allow us to be as accurate as possible when discussing insurance information as part of your visit.
