Your First Visit
EVERY SMILE STARTS WITH AN INITIAL CONSULTATION!
Our goal is to give you a healthy, properly aligned, beautiful smile. Knowing when you’ll need orthodontic treatment and selecting a course of treatment can be overwhelming. We respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way your smile looks and as a service to our community we offer a One-Visit consultation. (Always complimentary)
It is recommended by The American Association of Orthodontics that your children be seen for an orthodontic evaluation by the age of 7, however, it is never too late to get a straighter, healthier smile! Having an evaluation while the child is still growing enables us to actually guide the growth of the jaw and position the teeth in the least invasive way.
With patients and families as our top priority, we aim to minimize stress through this process. With state-of-the-art technology, we're able to maximize your time by taking all necessary records, photos, digital x-rays and 3D scans of your teeth during your initial visit. By the end of your initial visit, you will understand exactly what your orthodontic needs are, how we can correct them, the treatment time and cost, and any other factors related to treatment. We can even get started with your orthodontic treatment at that same appointment!
Our office participates in most dental insurance plans, including Aetna, Delta, Delta Dental, United Concordia, Cigna and Premera. We are in-network with our local employers Costco, Amazon, Boeing, Issaquah School District, Microsoft, and others. Our experienced staff can help organize and process that information for you. If you have questions on whether or not we accept your insurance, please call our office.
Many patients think that the most commonly cited reason for missed dental appointments is fear, anxiety, or lack of time. You’ll be surprised to hear that inability to afford care was the most commonly reported reason patients skipped dental appointments. Even those patients who have insurance. At Egger Orthodontics, we don’t want finances to hinder a patient from getting the orthodontic treatment they need. That’s why we offer in-house financing with no interest charges, and we also have partnered with CareCredit to offer low or no interest 3rd party financing options.
All of the staff members are consistently friendly and warm! They are wonderful with children (even the little sister that wanted to closely watch)! Dr. Egger and her staff are very gentle, knowledgeable and professional and spend quality time educating patients and family. We feel like we are getting excellent care!
