We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. As always, our initial appointment is complimentary. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment.
Before beginning treatment, we will obtain our diagnostic records. These include photographs, radiographs, and orthodontic models. All of our records are digital - including our models! These means we don't need to take impressions of your teeth with "that goopy stuff." The digital models are easier on the patient and all us to immediately analyze them, providing you with more information about your treatment. A treatment consultation will explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals. Our staff will review the fees for treatment, discuss payment options and any insurance coverage. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.
