Your First Visit
What to Expect at Your First Visit
We want your first visit to our office to be thorough and informative and a good discussion of potential treatment options and your concerns. Our team wants our new patients to feel very welcomed and comfortable. This important 30 minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable and may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records These records include digital x-rays, photos and a scan for study models so that we can develop an appropriate treatment plan. This additional appointment would take about an hour.
During this initial examination 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?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
We often schedule a consultation visit after the diagnostic records are analyzed to discuss treatment and give a clear understanding of treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements.
We value the importance of communication and want to work together with you. We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office.
