Below are some of the most frequently asked questions patients have about dentistry and oral health issues. If you have any other questions, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact our dental office, we would love to hear from you.
This appointment will take approximately 30-45 minutes. During the exam we will answer three main questions for you: 1. Is there a problem? 2. If so, how long will it take to be treated and when should treatment begin? 3. What is the approximate cost? If treatment is indicated and you wish to proceed, specific records become necessary to move forward such as study casts, x-rays, and digital photographs of your face/oral anatomy. Dr. Aboudara will then complete a diagnosis and treatment plan and will meet with you for a detailed consultation.

The cost of treatment depends on the severity of the patient’s orthodontic issues. Typical
payment plans include a down-payment and monthly payments over the length of treatment
with no interest.
