From your initial phone call until the time you walk out the door with your new smile, we want you to feel like part of the Vargo family. We strive to create a welcoming environment that is comfortable for the patients, parents, and siblings that come along. We offer complimentary WiFi, a coffee bar with a wide variety of flavors, a vintage arcade game room, and a cozy theater to watch popular movies and shows. We try to be very respectful of your time and want your visits to be fun and comfortable.
The Initial Consultation
We offer complimentary consultations and you do not need a referral from your dentist to get scheduled. At your consultation, your treatment coordinator will greet you and walk you through the process of the initial exam. She will take you on a tour of the office where you can meet many members of the Vargo team and see what the treatment area is like. We find that this eases the possible fears of our younger patients because they get to see Dr. Vargo at work, doing what he does best, which is making people smile!
We will take diagnostic photos and X-rays, then move into the consult room where we hear your concerns and goals for treatment. Dr. Vargo will complete a thorough exam, and if orthodontic treatment is recommended, he will educate you on why he is recommending treatment and what the benefits are.
No two patients are the same, and that is why we offer customized treatment options. From traditional braces to palatal expanders, from clear brackets to Invisalign, we offer a wide variety of treatment options that afford us the ability to choose the best for you.
The treatment coordinator will go into detail about the treatment plan and share examples of the appliances that will be used during treatment. She will also work with you to design a customized payment arrangement that is comfortable for you and your family. Records can be completed the same day as well, so you don’t have to miss work or school again. Your treatment coordinator will be your liaison with the practice, and will help you schedule your first orthodontic appointment to start your treatment.
We see our patients every eight to twelve weeks. All appointments are important and some will require morning sessions. We want your smile to arrive on time so if you have a conflict with your appointment, please contact our scheduling coordinator as early as possible. She can provide creative options, and if you are a working parent, ask about the help of our Vargo Valet!
