How do I schedule my first appointment?
It is easy to make an appointment for your initial examination and orthodontic treatments with Nowlin Orthodontics. Simply call 918-369-6100 and one of our friendly team members will be happy to assist you. If you schedule an appointment and something comes up, please call and cancel 24 hours in advance so that we can accommodate other patient requests.
What should I expect at my first visit?
Walk into our lobby where you will be greeted by our friendly staff. We will provide you with new patient paperwork that includes a health questionnaire, request for your insurance information and contact information. We will also provide you with information to familiarize you with our office and how we handle things like patient privacy.
What will happen at my initial exam?
Your initial orthodontic exam will take around one hour. The expert staff at Nowlin Orthodontics will ask you questions, get to know your oral hygiene routine, and listen to your health concerns. We believe in educating patients and empowering them to make good choices to improve their oral health. We will demonstrate how to properly care for your teeth during your orthodontics and make additional suggestions as needed.
Will my dental insurance cover orthodontics?
If your insurance covers orthodontic treatment, you will receive the benefit of reduced personal costs. Many insurance policies have a lifetime orthodontic benefit that is distinct from regular dental insurance. Remember that insurance policies vary, and we will review your insurance to determine the appropriate course of action. Once treatment has started, we will file your claims.
Please remember that orthodontic insurance is a benefit for you or your child. If, during the course of treatment, your benefits change, the financially responsible party is accountable for all charges.
What is your financial policy?
We accept a variety of insurance providers and endeavor to accommodate our patient’s request. Please call our office at 918-369-6100 to see if we are currently working with your insurance provider.
Our office is committed to helping you maximize your insurance benefits. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts. We will handle as much of your insurance questions and needs as possible.
What payment options do you offer?
It is our mission to provide you with affordable orthodontic treatment that is at the absolute forefront in quality and innovation. We offer a variety of payment options to meet both your needs and your budget. Please ask us about financing options, credit card payments and bank drafts. We offer Care Credit for those who wish to pay with third party financing.
We provide a no fee initial consultation and discounts for multiple family members and patients who elect to pay charges in full. Our above board policy assures you that there will be no “hidden costs”. Hidden costs are unpleasant surprises.
We thoroughly explain your options, so that we can accommodate your needs. From flexible monthly payments and 0% financing, to extended payment options and help with your insurance, you will find our office eager to arrange a plan that is gentle on your budget.
