What to Expect
At your first visit, one of our doctors will take a look at your teeth and your bite. This thorough orthodontic evaluation helps us decide if you need treatment. If you do need treatment, the next step is gathering all the information about your teeth and your bite with digital records. Our records consist of x-rays, photographs, a complete dental exam and study models. These let us study your teeth even when you are not here so we can come up with the best treatment plan for you or your child.
After we evaluate the records, we will take the time to discuss the orthodontic problems and concerns. We will review all the treatment options available and the pros and cons of each treatment plan. This gives you a chance to ask questions and take an active role in treatment decisions.
We also take this opportunity to discuss the financial aspect of orthodontics and our payment plans available. If you need to see another dental specialist first, we will happily make that appointment for you from our office.
