Your First Visit
Starting with your initial phone call, our team works hard to make sure you have what you need when you come for your first visit. Our forms can be mailed or emailed to you or they can be printed from right here on our website. We strongly recommend that any family members who will be involved in the decision concerning orthodontic treatment be present for this appointment. Please allow an hour to an hour and a half for this consultation. We will be doing an extensive evaluation and also communicating a lot of information. This will help assist you in your decision.
This complimentary consultation includes:
- Digital Photographs
- Digital x-ray
- A personal comprehensive evaluation
- A thorough discussion of your concerns, problems, treatment options and how long the treatment will take
- We will also discuss payment options, insurance, and flexible ways to make your treatment affordable
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes from one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals 6 to 12 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Cancel only if it is an emergency. It is difficult to reschedule you since most appointments are made 6 to 12 weeks in advance.
