When you first come into our office, we want to learn about you, your smile, and your orthodontic needs. Our goal is to make an accurate diagnoses for treatment, and to make sure you feel comfortable.

That’s why the initial consultation at Meyer Orthodontics is always free.

After your first visit, you’ll leave with all the information you need – including our estimates of length of treatment and cost. That way, you can go home and make a decision about the future of your orthodontic care.

After that, we have flexible payment plans to help finance your orthodontic treatment. At Meyer Orthodontics, we are transparent about the cost of your treatment throughout the whole process.

We can also file and submit for your orthodontic insurance benefits if you have that coverage. We are always happy to discuss payment options with you, such as using your FSA toward orthodontic treatment.

Did you know that only 13% of orthodontists in the United States are Board Certified?

Probably not, and that’s okay! Board Certified orthodontists have had a few more years of specialized schooling and have passed several additional exams. By choosing a Board Certified orthodontist, you can be sure you’re choosing the highest quality of orthodontic care.

5. We Rarely Take Impressions of Teeth ?

You know that white gelatinous goop that you stick your teeth into to make your retainer?

Yeah, no thanks.

Instead of taking an impression with that sticky method, we usually can scan your teeth to obtain a 3D mold. This way is much more comfortable for our Brookings patients!

6. We are Serious About Good Dental Health ✨

We’re here to help you take the best care of your teeth during your orthodontic treatment, so each new patient in braces receives an electric toothbrush to maintain good brushing habits throughout the process.

In addition, prior to placing the braces, we put a sealant onto your teeth which helps protect from potential decay or decalcification of the tooth enamel.

Finally, we know many of our younger patients are active in sports, so we offer orthodontic athletic mouth guards to protect your teeth and braces. These can even be reheated in the microwave for reshaping as your teeth move during treatment.
