Your First Visit
At your first visit to our orthodontic office, we make some diagnostic records to determine the best course of treatment. Diagnostic records typically include photos of your face and teeth, as well as X-rays. We use this information to develop a custom treatment plan that’s unique to your needs and goals. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of your treatment as your teeth begin to move and shift into the optimal position.
After we have evaluated your records, we’ll discuss our recommended treatment plan with you in detail.
Your first regular appointment is where the magic really happens. This is when we give you your appliances like braces, expanders, etc. Getting your appliances put on usually takes about an hour. Then, you’ll visit us at regular intervals, about 4 to 8 weeks apart, so that we can look at how your teeth are shifting and make any adjustments needed. This type of appointment takes around 30 minutes.
It’s important to note that patients are only seen by appointment only. We really make every effort to be on time for our patients and so we ask that you do your best to be on time for your appointments. Of course, we get it, life happens. If you know you’re going to be a few minutes late or need to cancel an existing appointment please notify our team as soon as you can.

Florida Medicaid Dental Insurers:
Will Medicaid cover the cost of braces?
For children under 21, Medicaid will cover the expenses of braces in the event that the need for braces is medically necessary. Once every year, your child can be assessed to determine whether braces are medically necessary. That means if you’re denied one year, you can schedule another evaluation during the following year. Normally, they will permit three evaluation attempts.
The Imagine Orthodontic Studio Prepay Program allows you to prepay for your child’s orthodontic treatment and lock in the current rate of $2,998. The minimum monthly contribution for the program is $50 per month. At the time your child is ready for treatment, our office will verify your insurance and apply any current benefits. If any additional appliances are necessary the fee for those appliances will be added to the cost above at that time. If in the future you decide not to proceed with treatment, notify our office in writing, and we will issue a full refund within 10 business days of request.
