Before getting any type of medical or dental treatment, the practitioner first needs to assess the situation and diagnose the problem.

For this reason, you won’t be able to obtain a comprehensive quote at your first meeting with the orthodontist, who will first need to see the extent of your problems. You should be able to discuss the prices of obtaining diagnostic records and payment plans and other financing options if you decide to proceed with the treatment. Standard fees for initial consultations are approximately to 0 depending on your location and the dental clinic. Many orthodontists also offer free no obligation consultations.
