At Peel Orthodontics, we know orthodontics can seem scary, strange, bewildering and exciting all at the same time. We want to put you at ease which is why we offer an initial complimentary Virtual Smile Analysis. This allows us to provide a preliminary treatment plan and costing saving you time an money. After this Virtual Smile Analysis we will schedule an in office appointment so Dr Ash or Dr Lau can complete a full examination and take orthodontic records.
This is what you can expect at your first visit to Peel Orthodontics.
When you come to Peel Orthodontics for your first visit, you will be seen by one of our treatment coordinators. They will take photos of your mouth, teeth, smile and facial profile. If you have private health insurance we will take X-rays as well. If you don't, we ask that prior to this appointment you have an x-ray at SKG in Mandurah. We have a special arrangements with them, where they will bulk bill our patients with a Medicare Card.
After photos have been taken, our specialist orthodontist Dr Ash Patel, or Dr Hui Lau will come in and have a chat with you. They will do an orthodontic examination which involves them assessing your teeth and jaws and taking measurements, which will be used to come up with your specific diagnosis. They then analyse this data, together with photos and x-rays, and makes a recommendation accordingly if they feel treatment is necessary.
Dr Ash then analyses this data, together with photos and x-rays, and makes a recommendation accordingly if he feels treatment is necessary. He will then discuss this with you.
Once they have provided you with their treatment recommendations, one of our treatment coordinators can answer any questions you may have and give you information on pricing and finance options for the cost of treatment.
This appointment takes one hour and will cost $256. As a courtesy we bull bill all photos, xrays, xray analysis to your private health fund if you have one.
If treatment is recommended and you take up treatment with us, this fee is deducted from your treatment cost.
