YOUR first visit

At your first visit, you will be greeted by our one of our staff members and given a tour of the office. We have incredibly friendly staff members who will be on hand to answer any questions or concerns you may have. Initial paperwork will be completed and a complimentary, no obligation orthodontic exam will be done. During this time, we evaluate many things relating to the face, the smile, the fit of the teeth and the amount of room for all of the teeth. From this initial visit, if a patient is ready for treatment, an appointment for diagnostic records is made.

If a patient is still developing and is not yet ready for treatment, we will recommend the patient be placed into an observation phase where we will follow growth and development to determine the appropriate time for treatment. Often, treatment fees, general payment options and insurance benefits are discussed.

Diagnostic Records and Consultation

Prior to beginning treatment, we take diagnostic records. At this appointment, x-rays, photographs and impressions (or molds) of the teeth are taken.

This appointment completes the data gathering process and allows for a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan. The diagnosis and treatment plan are then reviewed at a subsequent consultation appointment. At the consultation, we will work together to decide what the best treatment is for you.
