Your First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination, digital photos and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important initial visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs and concerns.

During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • 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 my payment options?

Please help us be prepared for your first appointment by completing  the New Patient and Medical History form.  Also, please read and sign the HIPAA Privacy Form and bring these forms with you to your scheduled appointment.

If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card.  By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, full diagnostic records will be needed to properly and thoroughly diagnose and treatment plan for each individual. 

We will then schedule a consultation visit to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements. We insist 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.
