Welcome to Montano & Cardall Orthodontic Specialists! In preparation for your upcoming appointment, we invite you to watch this short video to learn what to expect during your first visit.
In the time before your appointment, we also ask that you fill out our New Patient Paperwork. This will give our doctors the necessary information to be completely prepared when they see you. We are excited to meet you in just a few days!
Consultation Appointment FAQ’s
How long will the appointment last?
We ask that you allow at least an hour for this initial visit.
What should I expect to happen during the appointment?
You’ll first take photos and X-Rays with our Radiology Technician. After being given a tour of the office, you’ll meet with your Treatment Coordinator; she will tell you more about our practice and answer all of your questions. Either Dr. Montano or Dr. Cardall will examine your teeth to let you know what type of treatment they recommend. The Treatment Coordinators will then customize your treatment and payment plans to fit exactly what you need.
How long does it take to get started with treatment?
If you feel comfortable with everything presented during your consultation, we can actually get you started with treatment that very same day!
How much is the consultation?
The consultation appointment is complimentary—it’s the Doctor’s gift to you!
How much do braces cost? Is Invisalign more expensive than braces?
Just like each treatment plan is different, each financial arrangement is customized to fit each individual patients’ needs. Usually, our office is able to offer traditional braces and Invisalign at the same cost. That cost for treatment is calculated at the consultation—after the doctors check your X-Ray’s and take a look at your teeth. From there, our treatment coordinators will be able to include any insurance information to create a payment plan that fits your budget.
