TMJ Consult

Your TMJ Consult

Things to expect before your appointment:

  • The consult fee is $435. This fee will be taken off the cost of treatment.

  • Your consultation will take up to 1 ½ hours. Please don’t plan anything directly after your appointment, as your consult may take longer than the allotted time.

  • Before we can even see you on the date of your appointment, your TMJ/TMD packet must be filled out. If you paperwork is not done 100% when you arrive, we will need to reschedule you. The reasoning for this is that your paperwork will take you 30-40 minutes. Make sure to take your time when filling this out. Dr. Willis will base part of your diagnosis off of what you say in your packet so make sure to be thorough.If you have any questions feel free to call us any time before your appointment, 541-672-4899
