New Patients

We’re excited to welcome you to our office

One of the best days at Aspen Orthodontics is when we get to meet our new patients for the first time! We love where we work and look forward to showing you why Aspen Orthodontics is Arizona’s leading provider of orthodontic treatment!

What to expect on your first visit

A warm welcome

Upon arrival you will be welcomed by one of our Aspen Orthodontic team members who will take you on a tour of the office, present you with a gift from Dr. Hunsaker and the Aspen Orthodontics team, discuss your concerns about your smile and take digital photos and x-rays.

Complimentary orthodontic exam

Dr. Hunsaker participates in each new patient consultation by conducting a thorough orthodontic exam and discussing the treatment plan including the recommended orthodontic service and treatment time. Dr. Hunsaker uses state-of-the-art digital imagery to visually show the goal of the Aspen Orthodontic treatment and to answer any of your questions.

Customized payment options

Following the comprehensive orthodontic exam, your patient care coordinator will discuss the variety of customizable payment plans available at Aspen Orthodontics. We work hard to provide financial options from pay-in-full discount to free financing – all of which will be presented to you.

Getting started

Your time is valuable – if you’re ready to start treatment, we can typically start immediately following your consultation with Dr. Hunsaker with diagnostic records will consist of additional photographs, x-rays and trays. Dr. Hunsaker uses these to create the “blueprint” of your treatment plan to make sure no small details are overlooked.

Payment and Insurance Information


The cost of treatment depends on the severity and length of treatment time. You will be able to discuss fees and payment options before treatment begins. We have payment plans to suit different budgets, including a no-down-payment option. We also accept most PPO insurance plans and we will file the necessary papers to the insurance company. We work hard to make orthodontics affordable.


In an effort to keep orthodontic fees down while maintaining the highest level of professional care, we have established this financial policy:

  • If full payment is made at the onset of treatment, we will offer a fee discount. (If you have insurance, we will offer a discount for payment of your portion of the fee that will not be covered by insurance.)
  • To fit your individual needs, financial arrangements can be made to extend your payments over a period of months.
  • For your convenience, we accept payment by VISA, MASTERCARD, DISCOVER, and AMERICAN EXPRESS.
  • We are providers of CARE CREDIT – a medical/dental credit card with no interest financing for 18 months.


If you have insurance, we will help you to determine the coverage you have available. We ask that you assign your insurance benefit to us. The balance will be arranged for you to pay (see above). Professional care is provided to you, our patient, and not to an insurance company. Thus, the insurance company is responsible to the patient and the patient is responsible to the doctor. We will help in every way we can in filing your claim and handling insurance questions from our office on your behalf.
