Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. We may need to take some photos and take a complementary radiograph to help properly diagnose your dental alignment. If this appointment is for a child, we will determine if and when would be the best time to start treatment.
Prior to treatment there will be examination, xrays such as orthopantomogram(OPG), lateral cephalogram.
We also take impressions to enable fabrication of study models that act as part of the patient’s medical records and a representation of the mouth before treatment.
We will present you with all financial and contract options at the screening as well as any other referrals that are necessary, such as dental restorations and oral surgery. We will talk about your next appointment and the options of starting that day if time permits. We want to be your dentists for all your teeth treatment and make this an outstanding experience for you and your family.
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!
