Every WAO smile starts with a consultation
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
Review your dental and medical history forms
Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
Help you create a customized treatment plan
Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
After the initial consultation
After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and your doctor will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you. If for any reason you need to reschedule, please contact us as soon as possible.
Insurance and financial information
The cost of your orthodontic treatment will vary depending on your individual needs and treatment plan. Our staff will discuss with you the cost of your treatment and each available payment plan option, so you can make the best choice for you and your smile. We will work with you to create a payment plan that fits your budget, and you will know what to expect before beginning treatment. We even except most major insurance plans and can help you navigate this resource.
Providing superior treatment and exceptional service are our top priorities. Hear what some of our customers have to say:
“I think the world of Dr. Wafelbakker, Dr. Anderson, and the entire staff. They are simply the BEST, and I know that I can trust that they will do what’s best for my family and me. My son, my daughter, and myself have gone through braces with their office, and I always felt confident that I was in the best hands. I also love how caring and friendly the staff are, and they always make it fun to visit. Thank you, for all you do and your generous contributions to our community.” – Debbie G.
“What can I say, having worked in the dental field for ten years, and having worked for some of the best dentists in the Bay Area, my standards are very high. Dr. Wafelbakker, Dr. Anderson, and staff get a resounding thumbs up! When I moved to Gilroy as an adult, I looked for an orthodontist to correct my bite. My choice was made easy by the professionalism and perfect results I saw come out of Dr. Wafelbakker’s office. Now twenty years later, both my daughters and countless friends have had their orthodontic treatment performed by Drs. Wafelbakker and Anderson. This is one office where the best care in dentistry is in the South Bay. I couldn’t be happier.” – Deb C.
“Dr. Wafelbakker, Dr. Anderson, and their outstanding staff are taking excellent care of my kids. We are always greeted with smiling faces, and I like that both doctors work on my children. It’s a real team effort. This has been especially important to me in the case of my daughter, who ended up needing mouth surgery before starting braces. The coordination and overall care between the doctors and the oral surgeon was terrific. My children are in the best of hands — five-star rating from this mom!” – Alice J.
