What To Expect
Your first visit and consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our experienced team, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your visit, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Obtain photographs of face and teeth
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

If treatment is indicated, the next step is to obtain diagnostic records. Diagnostic records usually include impressions, radiographs, bite analysis, and photographs. After diagnostic records are analyzed by our orthodontist, our office will conduct a treatment consultation to discuss all aspects of your treatment more in detail. A detailed summary of the diagnosis and proposed treatment plan will be provided to you and your family dentist.

After your treatment consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and your doctor will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes two hours, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible.

For more details concerning scheduling appointments, please review our office information at the top of the page.
