I am in desperate need of braces, I havent been to the dentist in about 5 years. I just dont know where to start. Do you know of any orthodonists who give free consultations in the Columbus, Ohio area? If not im sure my dental coverage will cover some of it. I just need to know where to start, and what I need.. Very frustrating when your not sure where to start. Thanks.


If you have dental coverage there is usually a lifetime maximum(about 1/4th) if your policy covers orthodontics. You should check this with your employer. I happen to know that Ohio Orthodontic Specialists 1386 Cherry Bottom Rd in Gahanna 614 428 8002 does free initial exams. They also have a payment plan should you need it.
