First Visit

We look forward to meeting you on your complimentary first visit to our office. During this time, we will review your medical and dental history and inquire about your specific orthodontic and dental concerns.

A thorough examination will then be performed which will allow us to determine whether orthodontic treatment is indicated to address those concerns. Each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. After the examination we will be able to answer the following questions:

  • Is treatment needed now or is it best to wait until jaw growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be needed to correct the problem?
  • Approximately how long will treatment take?
  • How much will treatment cost?

At the conclusion of this appointment any additional questions or concerns will be addressed. It is our desire for each patient that leaves our office to have a clear understanding of his or her treatment needs, what the treatment will consist of and what the next step toward resolving the problem(s) will be.
