I went to see Dr. Kalika for an orthodontic consultation. The office was very well-run and the entire consultation took about thirty minutes to complete. The process of taking x-rays and photographs was fairly seamless and I was moved from onestation to the next until I finally saw Dr. Kalika and was informed of my options, and then payment plans were laid out for me to consider. The process was efficient to say the least, and I felt no pressure to make a decision.
