A Better Orthodontic Experience
What to expect
Your initial appointment (first examination) will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. The length of your first visit will be an hour, and will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.
During the first examination various records will be taken to assess the extent of the orthodontic problem and determine the optimal treatment plan to address the problem. These include x-rays, photos, and impressions for plaster models.
During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
How long will treatment take?
How much will it cost?
What are my payment options?
We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take.
We are always excited about meeting new patients!
At your first consultation appointment you will be asked to complete necessary paperwork. To save time, you are able to download new patient forms here. Please complete the forms and bring them with you to your consultation appointment.
