Dental Check Ups:

Our team will encourage all active patients to visit their dentist every six months during the treatment time. However, the responsibility remains with the patient.

Fees:

It is impossible to give any cost for treatment as orthodontic treatment may vary depending on individual problems and until Dr. Ferreira has done a complete consultation and examination. We will discuss the costing during the initial evaluation. There are different financial options available to accommodate your needs, and the practice will review these with you.

Appointments

Medical Aid:

We will apply for authorization from your medical aid if it should be necessary, but if your medical cover decreases, changes or terminates during treatment, the unpaid balance will be your responsibility. It is your responsibility to notify the practice of any medical aid change.

First Visit

  • We look forward and are excited to meet you. We are a fun and friendly team who will help you get to know our office with your first visit. The first step is to determine whether braces are suitable and for this Dr. Ferreira will examine your teeth.

     

  • Occasionally it is necessary take a digital panorex x-ray to look for any absent teeth and to check the development of the permanent teeth.  Only if braces are appropriate, will the oral hygienist take full records (clinical photos, impressions, and x-rays). These records are then analysed by Dr. Ferreira to determine the nature of the problem.

     

  • Once he has made a complete diagnosis and worked out your treatment plan; he will discuss it in depth with you. Dr. Ferreira will decide when it is the best time to begin your orthodontic treatment and will encourage you to ask questions, as we want to give you the personal attention and time you deserve to make this important decision. You (and your referral dentist) will receive a written report of the findings, as well as a detailed plan that outlines your treatment plan and fees.
