This person also is responsible for following up with any patients who need more time to think about their proposed orthodontic treatment.
After the doctor has gone over the patient’s diagnostic records and decided on the patient’s treatment options it is the job of the treatment coordinator to do the consultation with the patient and their parents, if applicable.

The treatment coordinator collects the down payment and helps the patient to set up a payment plan that is good for them, as well as answers any questions that the patient may have.The treatment coordinator is in charge of electronically filing the orthodontic insurance and will follow up with insurance companies when payments are not received in a timely manner. This position also coordinates all of the wisdom teeth removal surgeries and other extractions that are done with our traveling dentist who comes to our office. The treatment coordinator ensures that both the medical and dental insurance have been verified for each patient.
The treatment coordinator also assists the orthodontist with various other projects, but their main function is to be a patient advocate and act as a liaison between the patient and the doctor.
