First Visit

Your first appointment will consist of a thorough examination, an in depth review of your orthodontic issues, treatment timing, and discussion of potential treatment options. This important 60-minute visit gives us insight into your individual orthodontic needs and allows us to address together the following questions covering the basics of orthodontic treatment:

  • 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?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are your payment options?

Our goal is for our patients to leave our office with a clear understanding of their orthodontic treatment plan and how long it will take.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months.

  • Also, please bring your dental insurance card with you to your appointment. As a courtesy, we can submit a claim on your behalf should you have orthodontic benefits.
