4. A detailed explanation of your child’s diagnosis and treatment options

We want both you and your child to know and understand the treatments we will offer, what they do and why we do them. To this end, we schedule a meeting to discuss with you and your child the issues with their teeth and the ways we fix them.

At this meeting, Dr. Mateer will present you with the ideal treatment and any alternatives that may be available. We include several visual aids in order to explain the treatment to your child fully. If you or your child have any questions, we are happy to answer them until you are both completely satisfied.

Once the explanations are complete, a member of our staff will discuss with you the timing of the various meetings and appointments necessary to complete treatment. Any insurance issues and payment options will be discussed here, along with the payment plans we offer. Once you are fully informed, you can make the decision of how to proceed with treatment.
