Your First Visit


We are always excited to meet new patients. Please call us at (972) 390-1100 to schedule your complimentary one-hour consultation. You may also Request an Appointment from our website and electronically submit or print a New Patient Form. Please be sure to bring your paperwork with you to expedite your appointment. If you have orthodontic insurance, please contact our office ahead of time and provide us with the information so that we may verify your benefits and give you a more accurate estimate of your costs.

The Day of Consultation

Our Treatment Coordinator will welcome you, ask you about your concerns, and take some preliminary diagnostic information (digital photos and X-rays as needed) so that we may give you a thorough examination and discuss treatment options.

Dr. Mojdehi-Barnes will review your concerns and medical history before a thorough clinical examination. Your general dentist may be contacted at a later date if further information or history is needed in order to provide you with the best care possible. Dr. Mojdehi-Barnes will determine the following:

  • Is there a 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 plans are feasible and which one is the best for you?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • What types of appliances are needed?
  • Are you a candidate for braces or Invisalign®?

After Dr. Mojdehi-Barnes has answered all of your questions, our Treatment Coordinator will discuss the cost of treatment and review the payment options with you. She will also answer any further questions that you may have, and walk you through the steps needed to start your treatment. You will leave with a packet of information that you may review at your convenience.

While we can often answer general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.


We strive to provide affordable, high-quality treatment that fits your budget! We offer a variety of payment options to meet your needs, including VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards. We also offer payment in full discounts, family discounts, senior citizen discounts and automatic monthly credit or debit card processing (when requested).

To make your treatment more affordable, we offer no-interest financing options through our office, and we accept third-party financing through CareCredit. If you have any questions about financing or payment options, please ask us! We will thoroughly explain your choices and work hard to accommodate your needs.


Our office is in network with numerous insurance companies, and we work diligently with them to get you the maximum benefits available. We do accept assignment of benefits from most insurance companies. Because insurance policies vary, we can only estimate your coverage in good faith, but cannot guarantee coverage due to the complexities of insurance contracts.

Please keep in mind that we have no contractual agreement with your insurance company as we do with you. Your estimated patient portion will be paid to us with a flexible financial arrangement, and as a service you, we will bill the insurance companies for the remainder. In case of cancellation of policies or termination of benefits, you will be responsible to our office for the unpaid insurance benefit.
