First VisitOrthodontics

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 30 minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include x-rays, photos and an intraoral digital scan (for study models). These things are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan for you. With our small intraoral scanner, we no longer have to take alginate impressions of the mouth – something that had previously been a source of anxiety for patients because of the tendency for impressions to trigger a gag reflex. This additional appointment will last approximately 30 minutes.
Request An Appointment
During the initial examination for each patient, Dr. Jen will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
  1. Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  2. Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  3. What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  4. Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  5. How long will treatment take?
  6. How much will it cost?
  7. What are my payment options?
While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial 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. Again, we look forward to meeting you at your initial consultation. You are on your way to a beautiful smile!
