Longview Orthodontist

If you are looking for an orthodontist in Longview, then we have some great news!! Mack and Hansen Orthodontics is now open Monday though Friday here in Longview Texas!!

We know that despite school being out of session, summer can still be a busy time for families here across East Texas (Longview, Gilmer, Marshall, Kilgore, Carthage, Henderson, and Mount Pleasant).

Being that we are open Monday through Friday, summer is always a great time to get in for one of our free orthodontic consultations!! Even though school is out, we still offer late “after school” and “after work” appointments for those of you who have a hard time getting in to see us.

IF you would like to set up a complimentary orthodontic consultation for you or your child, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 903-212-7737. You can also request a visit online at https://www.etxortho.com/request-a-complimentary-consult

We treat children, teens, and adults of all ages and start seeing children as early as age 7 for orthodontic evaluations. At those evaluations we will look at more than just the teeth, but the jaws as well. We check to see if your child has any crossbite, or underbites that may need to be corrected while the jaws are still growing.

Summer is also a great time for cook outs and barbeques. If you are already in braces or invisalign and are cooking out with family and friends, remember to use some caution when eating corn on the cob! And remember to not place your invisalign trays or retainers in a napkin because they will end up being thrown out and forgotten about!

These are just some friendly tips from your East Texas neighborhood orthodontist!!

Mack and Hansen Orthodontics is in network with most dental insurances

If you are looking for an orthodontist that is in network with your dental or orthodontic insurance, then look no further! Here at Mack and Hansen Orthodontics we are your in network orthodontic provider for braces and invisalign. We treat children, teens and adults of all ages too. If you have questions about your orthodontic coverage or insurance, we would be happy to help you understand your insurance coverage.

What does it mean that we are an in-network orthodontist? How much do braces cost?

Well, what that means to you is that you will receive an even greater discount on your orthodontic treatment, whether that is with braces or invisalign. If you have an orthodontic benefit as part of your dental insurance, then that benefit amount will go directly towards treatment. It is what your insurance will pay towards braces or invisalign, which means it is that much less that is out of pocket for orthodontic treatment. Because we are an in-network orthodontic provider you get that additional discount on your orthodontic treatment, meaning there is even less that comes out of pocket for treatment, and that is great news for you!! There is a wide range of orthodontic insurances and depending on the type of insurance you have your orthodontic benefit may be greater than other insurances.

How do I know if I have orthodontic insurance?

When you give us a call for your complimentary consultation and give us your insurance information we reach out to your insurance company and get all the details regarding your orthodontic benefit. We will go over these details with you at your visit, so you know exactly what the out of pocket portion will be for orthodontic treatment.

If you are looking for an in-network orthodontist or orthodontic provider in your area, be sure to reach out to your insurance company.
