Initial Exam

couple_2We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. There is no charge for this initial consultation. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.

Your first orthodontic visit will consist of an examination and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs to determine if this is the proper time to begin treatment. At this visit we will thoroughly evaluate your teeth and bite for:

  • Crowding
  • Under Bite
  • Overbite/Overjet
  • Open Bite
  • Cross Bite
  • Tooth and Jaw Development

If treatment is indicated, diagnostic records will be made. Diagnostic records consist of digital X-rays, a digital scan of your teeth, and photos. This will ensure that each patient receives the proper individualized treatment plan.

After we have evaluated your records, we conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your treatment in detail. We will provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and the parent, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.
