We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. This appointment is important because it will consist of an initial examination to look for all possible problems that would require orthodontic care as well as a discussion of potential treatment options that we feel would be best-suited to take care of your particular needs. During this time, we will determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment, and you will be given the opportunity to get the answers to any questions you may have. This visit will also help you get acquainted with our office and staff. We understand that each patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.
After we have evaluated your records, we will conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail, allowing you to learn more about the methods involved with helping you achieve your new smile. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent in the case of a youth, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions. It is our mission to ensure that you understand everything necessary to make your decision whether or not to proceed with treatment.
