At Coquitlam Family Orthodontics, we don't want our patients to put off or avoid necessary orthodontic treatment because of financial concerns. Our affordable and flexible payment options help us make orthodontic treatment accessible to almost anyone.
No matter what, the Coquitlam Family Orthodontics team will help you find a payment plan that works.
We offer flexible appointment times early in the morning to accommodate your busy schedule, to keep the time missed from school or work at a minimum. Get in Touch we'll be happy to schedule an appointment that fits into your schedule.
We've designed our convenient schedule to provide maximum availability for shorter adjustment appointments in the after-school hours.
Longer appointments (for putting on or removing braces, for example) are therefore reserved for morning and mid-afternoon time slots.
In situations where you have to miss school or work in order to attend your appointment at our practice, we will provide the documents you need for qualified work and school excuses.
Coquitlam Family Orthodontics uses the most recent technologies and treatment techniques, all of which have been designed to improve the safety and comfort of our patients.
Digital radiography, for example, protects patients from unnecessary exposure to radiation, and is also more environmentally-friendly, since it does not require the harsh chemicals that are associated with traditional X-ray processing.
We extend our use of current, efficient technology to the administrative end of our practice, with a paperless integration of all of our computer systems. This allows to instantly access any patient's information at the chair; a 'green' alternative to paper documents.

At our practice, all instruments are packed in delivery cassettes and 'autoclaved'. An autoclave is a pressurized medical device that sterilizes dental and medical equipment using steam under pressure. It is one of the most effective methods for destroying all types of microorganisms.
Each instrument we use comes packaged and completely sterilized to your chair, only to be unwrapped right in front of you. A sterilization monitoring system is in place at all times, and has been verified by use of an independent lab to ensure that we are always providing the cleanest possible environment for our patients.
Our treatment fee includes everything: beginning and final records, all appliances, x-rays, and high-quality upper and lower retainers.
Additionally, we follow up with patients regularly for two years after active orthodontic therapy is complete, to make sure that excellent orthodontic results are sustained.
Your fee also includes all the orthodontic supplies you'll need to take care of your braces, including things like orthodontic toothbrushes, fluoride rinse, orthodontic floss, brushing timer, and sports mouth guards.
We are proud members of the BC Orthodontics Group, a highly respected group of academically-oriented orthodontists. Orthodontists in the BC Orthodontics Group follow strict 'best practices' in patient experience, patient care, and the use of current orthodontic technology.
