Your First Visit

We are always excited to meet you during your first visit to MCO Downtown Toronto, MCO Markham, MCO Oshawa, and MCO Stouffville Orthodontics. This complimentary, initial 40-minute appointment will consist of digital X-rays, and a examination with one of our doctors. While this information is required for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan, few, if any other offices in the area offer such a complete, complimentary evaluation.  Despite seeing thousands of new patients, we will make sure we customize the best orthodontic plan for you.

Your doctor will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is there a dental or health condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now, or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures and options will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?

Our treatment coordinator will work out a customized financial plan with you and discuss the sequence of appointments.  If your doctor has recommended treatment, we will help get you ready to begin your treatment.  Many of our patients are happy and enjoy the convenience of beginning treatment on their initial visit.

Please note:

Orthodontic Insurance Assignment Accepted!

Unlike your family dentist, orthodontic specialists do not generally accept insurance directly from your insurance company because claims must be done by paper instead of electronically.  At MCO Orthodontics we have created a system where we are able to accept your insurance directly, as long as your policy accepts written insurance assignment claims.  This will help reduce your out-of-pocket costs, reduce your monthly payments, and more importantly, take away the stress and work of sending monthly claims yourself!  For this reason, our new patient coordinators will ask you for your insurance information before your consultation so that they can help coordinate your benefits.

We will check with your general dentist to see if there are any previous orthodontic imaging or X-rays within the last year, such as the ones below.  If you have had these images taken at another consultation, please arrange to have these materials present (hard or digital copies) during your first visit so that we can minimize your radiation exposure and present you with the proper information.  Thank you!
