Your First Orthodontic Appointment
We look forward to meeting you at your initial visit to Kuhlberg Orthodontics! As always, our initial examination is complimentary. At this first orthodontic appointment we will introduce you to our doctors, our staff and give you a tour of our office.
During this time our doctors will listen to your concerns and identify your orthodontic needs by performing a thorough examination of your teeth and jaws. If orthodontic treatment is recommended we will discuss potential treatment options and determine the appropriate time to start.
If we determine it is a good time to begin orthodontics a diagnostic records appointment will be scheduled. Should we find that your child is not ready for treatment but may benefit from braces in the future a recall appointment to monitor growth and development can be scheduled.
Prior to beginning treatment, we always obtain diagnostic records to help us create your personalized orthodontic treatment plan. Our diagnostic records include photographs, digital radiographs, and a digital scan of your teeth. All of our records are digital - including our models! This means we don't need to take impressions of your teeth with "that goopy stuff." Our digital models also make it easier for us to immediately analyze your teeth, providing us with more information about your treatment. If you have had dental x-rays taken in the last 6 months please bring those or have them forwarded to our office. Following records, a letter outlining our findings and recommendations will be sent to your general dentist.
We understand that each patient has unique concerns and orthodontic needs. We promise to give you the personal attention you deserve when discussing your treatment choices, length of treatment and payment options. During our treatment consultation we will explain all aspects of your treatment in detail; including a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a summary of our findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, including goals. It is important to us that you understand the treatment process. Please do not hesitate to ask us questions. Your smile is our priority!
Our financial coordinator will review our treatment fees, discuss payment options and any insurance coverage. We offer flexible payment methods that fit each individual’s financial situation. We will also file any necessary insurance paperwork to assign benefits to you. At Kuhlberg Orthodontics, we work hard to make your orthodontic treatment affordable.
We look forward to meeting with you to discuss any questions you may have regarding orthodontic treatment.

“Very friendly warm and compassionate. They educated my son on how to care for his braces, what foods to avoid, how to clean and most of all, they are there even during any emergency including weekends. I highly recommend this Orthodontic practice to anyone who want a personal, friendly one on one relationship with their doctor.” Thu M.
