Choosing the Right Orthodontist, Part Four: Not all fees are created equal.

Why do we charge our patients a consultation fee? Our doctors carve out time in their schedule to sit down and meet with you. Dr. Orchin will take the time to get to know you and your dental concerns and formulate a specific treatment plan just for you. During the exam Dr. Orchin takes the time to explain his findings to you and has the gift of explaining the findings in a way that you will understand. The team at Orchin Orthodontics wants you to be informed of the diagnosis and our treatment plan so that you are able to make the best decision on orthodontic treatment. Before you leave our office you will know what type of treatment is indicated for you, what is involved in the treatment, how long you will be in treatment and the exact cost of treatment. Our fees are all inclusive, meaning that there are no hidden or extra fees for x-rays taken during treatment, emergency visit, broken fixed appliances, or retention visits. These extra fees can add up to hundreds of dollars if they are not included.

Since we have let the proverbial cat out of the bag, let’s talk about our fees. We live in the same community we work in and we have heard the rumors that Orchin Orthodontics is the most expensive orthodontic practice in the DC metropolitan area. Would it surprise you if we tell you that is simply not true? Well, we did a case study and here is what we found: Our fees are within a couple of hundred dollars of the other TOP orthodontic practices in the area. Yes, that is right! Some of the cases, we were not the highest but the lowest of the three fees we encountered. Please remember that we only looked at practices that are qualified to deliver similar results. Our team at Orchin Orthodontics is the best and we know that. We have the technology that no other practice in the area has, and extensive training to make your orthodontic experience the best it can be. Our patients experience shorter treatment times with less discomfort. Call us today so that we may share the Orchin Orthodontic Experience with you.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
