What to Expect During Your Initial Appointment

Your first appointment with us is an exciting time, as it's a chance for us both to get acquainted and to learn more about your orthodontic situation and how we can help you achieve a beautiful new smile. During your initial 30-minute consultation, we'll get to know you and learn a bit about your medical history, and we'll also complete a thorough orthodontic evaluation that will give us a sense of your orthodontic situation and what treatment methods may be available to you. Best of all, your first appointment is completely free!

Your Orthodontic Evaluation

After filling out the necessary paperwork to get you into our system, your doctor will perform a thorough orthodontic evaluation of your mouth. During this exam, he'll look for alignment problems in the teeth and jaws, being careful to watch for both problems that currently exist and any issues that may develop over time. In addition to the exam, we'll likely also take photographs, x-rays, impressions (physical models of the teeth), and any other measurements that will help us understand your orthodontic situation.

Discussing Your Orthodontic Treatment Options

your orthodontic evaluation, we'll talk to you about the findings, discussing any orthodontic conditions you may have as well as the treatment options that may be available to you. Keep in mind that at this point, the discussion is preliminary: we'll need a few days to fully review the materials from your examination and form a detailed diagnosis and treatment recommendation. That said, we can still go over the basics of your orthodontic situation and treatment options at your initial appointment.

During this discussion, we'll explain whether or not you appear to have any orthodontic conditions, and also how those conditions might progress and affect your bite over time. We'll also lay out your potential orthodontic treatment options, which may include any of the following:

  • Traditional Metal Braces
  • Clear Braces
  • SmartClip Braces
  • Invisalign

We'll discuss all the potential treatments available to you as well as the time frames, logistics, and potential costs of the treatment. We'll also go over your financial and insurance options to help give an overall picture of treatment. If you have any questions, we'll take the time to answer them carefully so you fully understand your situation and options. After we discuss everything fully and decide on a course of action, we'll send a report to your general dentist so they're fully up to date.
