New Patient Information

Welcome to Orthodontic Specialists of Marquette! We’re always ready to accept new patients of all ages to come experience our truly one-of-a-kind care that combines the latest technology with the friendly service you’d expect in the Upper Peninsula. Before coming to see us for the first time, we recommend taking a moment to read all of the helpful information below to answer some of your basic questions. Of course, if you have more, feel free to give us a call anytime! We look forward to meeting you and making you a part of the patient family!

Your First Visit

During your first visit, we will discuss your concerns and review your medical and dental history. We will also give you basic information about your projected treatment time and discuss fees and financial arrangements. You will learn the reason for treatment, the optimal time for it to begin, the expected result when it is complete, and the possible outcome if no orthodontic treatment is done.

Your first orthodontic visit will also include:

  • A complete oral exam with X-rays, photos, and a digital scan to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • A presentation of all your options to help you create a customized treatment plan
  • A discussion of all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
  • A free Oral B Power Toothbrush for starting treatment with us!

Dental Insurance Accepted

Even though our care is state-of-the-art, we believe that it should still be affordable for the average family, which is why our practice is happy to accept a long list of insurance plans from some of the most popular providers. We’ll go over your benefits, so you can understand the best way to use them. Then we’ll even handle the claims process on your behalf to ensure you’re getting the most out of your coverage at every visit.

Flexible Financing Available

If you currently do NOT have dental insurance, our office is happy to help you finance your care in whatever way works best for your budget. You can get a plan with low-to-no interest, a flexible down payment, and a flexible length as well. Basically, our goal is to make it easy for you to come see us. Simply taking care of your smile should never cause a financial burden, and we’ll go the extra mile to ensure that. To learn more about your financing options with us, contact us today.
