First Visit

We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. 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. Our goal is to provide the following at this visit:

  • Need for orthodontic treatment
  • Optimal treatment timing
  • A written summary of findings
  • Outline of treatment plan(s)
  • Estimated fees (verified upon review of orthodontic records)
  • Payment options
  • Estimated duration of treatment

We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.

This appointment is usually followed by an orthodontic records appointment, which includes comprehensive photographic series, dental models, and the appropriate radiographs/x-rays.  After we have evaluated your records, a formalized treatment plan is developed with your input, and we are ready for treatment to begin!
