First Visit

h-smile5.jpgWe are always excited about meeting new patients in our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.

What Happens During the First Visit?

During your visit we will give you a tour of our office so you can become comfortable and familiar with us and how we care for your needs. We will also take a panoramic X-ray (free of charge) so we can evaluate tooth health and development as we start to make our treatment plan for you.

We know your time is valuable, so for your convenience we will also reserve time following the exam for additional records so you can start the treatment process that same day, saving you an extra visit. Your first appointment will last approximately one hour.

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?
  • What are the treatment fees?
  • What are my payment options?

Our aim is to make your first (and every) visit at our office an experience that will be special for you. We look forward to not only straightening your teeth and bite, but helping you smile from the inside out!
