We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. On occasion, when it is indicated, a panorex X-ray is taken to help us determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment.
If we determine that treatment is indicated, a complete set of diagnostic records will be taken. These consist of study models, orthodontic X-rays as well as digital photographs. These records are necessary to develop a customized treatment plan for each patient.
After we have evaluated your records, a second visit is scheduled to conduct a treatment consultation or case presentation. At this appointment we will explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both patients and parents, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions. For your convenience, treatment may also begin at this visit should you choose.
