Free Video Exams From the Comfort of Your Own Home

Posted on March 18, 2020

Did you know Cardinal Orthodontics offers complimentary video exams? That’s right! You can learn about your orthodontic treatment options from the comfort of your own home.

How do video exams work?

Step 1

Visit and click through the steps to setting up your free video exam. This will only take a few minutes.

Step 2

Watch the “instructional video” on how to properly take photos of your teeth using your cell phone. (optional)

Step 3

Fill in your name, phone number and email address. You will also be asked if you prefer to be contacted via Facetime or Skype. If you choose Skype, don’t forget to list your username!

Step 4

Verify that you are 18 years of age or older! If you are not over the age of 18, please continue on by filling in the guardian contact information.

Step 5

Submit your photos. This is an optional step! Dr. James Galea will still meet with you over a video exam even if pictures are not submitted. However, with pictures, our doctor will be able to analyze them before even calling you back – making your appointment that much quicker!

What to Expect after Requesting a Video Exam?

A Cardinal Orthodontics employee will be in contact with you via phone, text, or email to see what time works best for your video exam. Dr. James will then reach out to you over Facetime or Skype at that designated time. He will ask what your goals are for your smile, and what exactly you are interested in: metal braces, clear braces or Invisalign. From there, he will take a look at the inside of your mouth and be able to determine what treatment options are best for your particular case. At this appointment, you will also learn how long you can expect to be in treatment. At Cardinal, our average treatment time is only 16 months!


The biggest question at this appointment is, “how much will it cost?”. As soon as our doctor gets off the video exam call, he will discuss with our treatment coordinator what exactly he has recommended for your treatment. From there, the treatment coordinator will work up a financial plan and call you back with different financing options. At Cardinal, we offer low monthly payments and no-interest, in house financing! You will even be given the option to receive 10% off your total fee if you pay in full.

Getting Started with Braces or Invisalign

After meeting with Dr. James and discussing payment arrangements with our treatment coordinator, you will be able to make an informed decision on how you’d like to proceed. If you decide you’d like to get started with braces or Invisalign, we will get you scheduled for a time that is convenient for you to come into one of our St. Louis Offices. Our locations are located in Rock Hill & Ballwin, MO.
