Fill Out a Few Forms
Forms are just a normal part of any medical or dental visit. You can save some time and get right down to business once you arrive by completing our patient forms at home and bringing them to your first visit.
A Smile Assessment is a great way to get the show on the road, so to speak. We take some glamour shots of you, as well as x-rays. Then you’ll spend some time with our Treatment Coordinator in one of our private consultation rooms, where your images are in the spotlight on a big screen.
Meet the Doc
Dr. Jared will come in to meet you and talk about the ways to improve your smile. This is a chance for you to learn about what needs to be done from an oral health standpoint, as well as share your wish list of what you want to change about your smile. If you have questions, ask away! The only stupid question is the one that never gets asked. We enjoy spending time with our patients, and your questions keep the conversation interesting and engaging for both of us! We will also discuss wisdom teeth!
The Financial Chat
The cost of your orthodontic care is another reason why you may feel a bit nervous during your first visit. No worries. We explain all of these details, as well as how we work with your insurance. Mint Hill Orthodontics also offers in-house financing available to help with your out-of-pocket costs. And remember, the consultation is always free. Because we like seeing you smile and free things tend to make people smile.
Your first visit to our office is the beginning of the rest of your freshest smile! Start your journey with us today by scheduling your free consultation.
Common Sense Financing
Listen guys, we get it: life is expensive, & the thought of taking on another monthly expense can be overwhelming, even for something as life-changing as the smile of your dreams. Lucky for you, we’re here to help! Here at Mint Hill Orthodontics, we believe that EVERYONE is entitled to a smile that enhances their confidence & self-esteem, and we will help you to work out a monthly payment plan that works for YOU.
Pricing Built For & Around Y-O-U.
At Mint Hill Ortho, we offer treatment options that are very competitively priced for our area. One of the price points we’re most proud of is that our cost of braces is comparable to our cost of Invisalign. This means that you can choose the best option for you, rather than making a decision based solely on price point. At many other practices, Invisalign is a substantially more expensive treatment option and may not be your best option.
Our goal is to provide every patient with exceptional and affordable orthodontic treatments. We consider your specific lifestyle and budget when recommending specific appliances and procedures. We tailor the plan to what YOU can afford each month. This distinction keeps you engaged and excited throughout your treatment process, which will help us reach the smile of your dreams more quickly and easily than you can even imagine! We are here to ensure that you never feel overburdened due to cost.
Not paying Interest? Now you have my interest…
Mint Hill Ortho offers interest-free financial payment plans that require a low down payment. We also work with other types of financing options, such as flexible spending accounts, bank drafts, and credit cards. After your Smile Assessment and a chat with the amazing Dr. Jared, you will then meet with our Treatment Coordinator to discuss the fees and various payment options.
Your smile is priceless to us, & we never want a limited budget to get in the way of the smile that you deserve! Contact us today to schedule your free consultation!

How to crush your braces experience
There’s no getting around it! braces are a big adjustment! However, they most definitely don’t have to put you on the sidelines – here are the highlights on how to finish your treatment on time and win the #bracerace
1. Easy does it
The biggest key to #winning with your braces is to take good care of them, as breakage can result in costly fixes that can add on to your treatment time.
A big part of caring for your braces is avoiding foods than can harm them, which is basically anything overly sticky, hard, or chewy. Examples of these “no no” foods unfortunately include favorites like gum, hard/sticky candy, corn chips/taco shells, popcorn, & soft drinks. Just remember- nothing tastes as good as your perfect smile feels!
2. Put your brushing time in!
Oral hygiene is important not only for your orthodontic treatment, but also just for life in general. No one wants a lifetime of tooth problems. To ensure optimal oral health during treatment and beyond by brushing, flossing, and rinsing your mouth regularly between meals. We are committed to being a training ground for awesome brushers and flossers to ensure our patients carry healthy beautiful smiles into the future.
3. But will my teeth hurt?
Braces work by placing tiny amounts of force into each tooth at each visit, which means that they can sometimes make your mouth feel tight and uncomfortable for a short time after the initial and follow-up appointments! Dr Jared will guide you on how best to manage any discomfort at each visit.
The main thing is that we are here to guide you through your smile journey at every turn!
Dr Jared is always available for questions or concerns and wants to make your experience everything it should be. Even though your smile will be in progress, we want you smiling the whole time. Orthodontic treatment should be fun and we strive to make it so.
