What to Expect at Your Complimentary Orthodontic Evaluation

Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable; therefore, to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records.  In order to save you time, money and unnecessary treatment, we only complete records if we feel you are a candidate for orthodontic treatment and you have decided to  start treatment at our office.  The records may include X-rays, photos and impressions for study models.

During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions.

  • 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?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the complimentary orthodontic 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.

If necessary we will 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 and how long it will take.  Also, we will answer any questions you may have regarding your treatment.

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.
  • 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.

Open Communication

We believe that good orthodontic care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
