Andrea's Consultations #3 and #4

Consultation #3- Dr. T #2 (same as Jaime's Dr. T #2)

I was excited to meet this orthodontist as my sister and I thought he would be cheaper being in the US. He wasn't, though. I wasn't a big fan of this orthodontist. He didn't seem very "involved" with the consultation. By that I mean he just seemed too quiet. He looked at my mouth and just said, "Yeah, you need braces." Dr. T was friendly and chatted to my sister and me about Canada/Sarnia. This orthodontist didn't make me feel excited though about braces.

He also doesn't do ceramic braces, which is what I want. His estimate was the same as Jaime's, $5500.


Consultation #4- Dr. T #1 (same as Jaime's Dr. T #1)

This orthodontist was very friendly and professional. He introduced himself to me and shook my hand when he saw me. He checked my mouth out and explained in very much detail the whole process that I would have. Dr T said I didn't need to take any teeth out, although there would be a very slight chance I'd need one out. As Dr T explained everything, he sat almost right in front of me, made eye contact, and smiled. He seemed happy to help me. He shook my hand again as he left and told me he was glad he met me. In my opinion, friendliness goes a long way! He set me up with an assistant, who I had known from high school. The payment plan was figured out using a program on a computer so you could switch around numbers; unlike the other places that had sheets which were just prices handed to me. The computer was set up at a little table so both the assistants and the customers could view it. I liked that.

This ortho made me feel very excited again for braces! Dr T offers clear ceramic braces, which I am interested in getting. I got my quote for ceramic on the top teeth and metal on the bottom. My total quote was $ 5585.
