Black Orthodontics is not your average dental office. You have enough stress in your life—coming here shouldn’t be one of them. Aside from our flexible payment options to faster treatment times, we want your experience here to be stellar. We start this process with your very first, complimentary visit.
Where’s the stuffy waiting room?
You don’t want to sit in a boring waiting room and we don’t want you to! We’ve created a cheerful atmosphere in our reception area where you’ll never have to “wait.” It’s filled with music, snacks and fresh baked cookies daily, organic juices, video games, a photo booth, family friendly movies, and activities to keep your kids and teens entertained. We even have fun events like “luau day” and more so that you can always expect a treat here! Our team is always smiling, and we can’t wait to help you and make your experience as comfortable as possible—and dare we say… fun!
What do the kids think about it?
Kids love it here! From the fun experience we provide in our office to the Kids Club—which gives them online access to contests, games, prizes and more—we are focused on making them love visiting us and going through treatment. All of these tactics aren’t just a ploy, though. They work to help kids improve their oral hygiene, giving them healthier smiles, not just prettier ones.
What about us adults who want a better smile?
A lot of adults are hesitant about seeking orthodontic treatment, and you may be too. We don’t want you to be shy, though! In addition to the group room where we offer most of our treatments, we have private rooms. Here you can discuss and receive your treatment in private as you get used to things. More than anything we want you to know that more and more adults are going through treatment, and that it is completely acceptable. But, just in case you’re still a little nervous about going through with it, consider this—orthodontics treatment is faster and less expensive than ever before. With options like Invisalign and Damon clear braces, we can get your smile where you want it without anyone even realizing you’re in treatment.
How much does the first visit cost?
Nothing! The first visit and necessary records are Dr. Black’s gift to you. He wants to give you the most accurate recommendation for treatment possible. It also gives us a chance to meet one another and discuss the treatment that will help you achieve your best smile. During this visit we reserve one hour for you so that you don’t feel rushed. We also take an x-ray using a lower radiation machine than most offices (using the awesome technology of CBCT 3D), and we also take photographs of the inside and outside of your mouth.
All of this is free of charge. We are so confident with our treatment and plans that if you would like to visit another orthodontist for a second opinion, we’ll share the images at no duplication cost. This not only reduces radiation exposure to you or your child, but allows you to get a second opinion. We want you to know, though, nearly everyone who sees us for this first visit comes back for treatment. Dr. Black is simply one of the most well renowned orthodontists in WNC, and he provides excellent service and experience to all of his clients.
