Your First Visit
Your smile journey starts with an initial consultation with Dr. Barakat. It is a great opportunity for us to get to know you, your concerns, and your smile goals. During your initial consultation, we will review your dental and medical history, thoroughly examine your teeth, take x-rays and digital scans of your teeth, create a customized plan that will best suit your needs, and discuss all financial information.
Our team will be with you from the start until you make an informed decision to achieve the healthy, stunning smile you have always wanted!
Lasting Smiles for All Ages
Phase I Orthodontics is the foundation for a lifetime of beautiful smiles. It starts with an orthodontic evaluation as early as age seven, which the American Association of Orthodontists recommends. Early detection of jaw problems and receiving early treatment when indicated may prevent the removal of permanent teeth and the need for a complex orthodontic treatment later on.
Teenage years are the most common time for orthodontic treatment because most adult teeth are already in place. This is also when teenagers become self-conscious about their appearance, including their smiles. We offer several orthodontic options to fit your teenager’s preferences, such as fun-colored metal braces or discreet clear aligners.
Orthodontic treatment is no longer for teens only! Adults are gearing towards orthodontics to achieve the smile they have always wanted. Straighter teeth promote good dental and overall health, giving you a better quality of life and smiling without holding back! It allows you to speak and smile confidently, enjoy your favorite foods, and clean your teeth better – putting cavities and gum disease at bay!
The cost of your orthodontic treatment varies depending on the type of treatment, duration, and individual needs. Our team here at Hunter Orthodontics would love to work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget.
We are also here to help you with insurance claims and paperwork. Our office accepts most major credit cards and insurance plans.
