What to Expect

Complimentary Consultation/Initial Exam

The initial appointment is a clinical examination given at no charge to determine your orthodontic needs. Dr. Coombs will examine your teeth in an examination chair. Dr. Coombs will then sit down with you one on one in the consultation room and discuss your orthodontic needs and answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment. A treatment coordinator will then go over our the costs associated with your treatment and help you determine which of our payment plans would work best for your situation. Sometimes it is necessary to take a set of orthodontic records in order for Dr. Coombs to be able to determine what the best treatment option is for your case. We would then have you come back for a second consultation with Dr. Coombs after he has reviewed your records in order to decide on which course of treatment is best for you.

We look forward to seeing you and welcome any questions you may have. Please call 575-640-3367 or send us a message today!

Question: Will Medicaid insurance cover my children for braces?
Answer: It may! The medicaid insurances can cover braces up to age 21 and begining at an age where there are 3 or less baby teeth present. Orthodontic records must be taken by an orthodontic office and submitted to the insurance. The reviewers with the insurance company will then score the malocclusion from these records that are sent in and if it scores enough points or has an automatic qualifier the insurance will cover the entire cost of treatment. So if your child has: Molina Medicaid, Blue Cross/Blue Shield Centennial care, or Presbyterian Centennial care, we can take these records for you. There is no need of a referral for this; you just need to call 575-640-3367 to schedule the appointment to have the records taken.
