We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. At your initial appointment, you will meet with our treatment coordiator who will orient you to our office.  Then you will have a  thorough examination with the doctor who will discuss current conditions/problems and potential treatment options with you.

During the initial examination for each patient, We will address all your questions, as well as the those on the following list:

  • Does my condition require orthodontic treatment?
  • 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 my payment options?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

We will then schedule a consultation visit to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements. We insure that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. Also, we will answer any additional questions.

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.
