First Visit

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 visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment.


  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
  • The pros and cons of treatment or no treatment at all.
  • What treatment procedures can be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any primary or permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • We will discuss risks to treatment specific to your case.
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

Please assist us by providing the following information prior to your first visit:

  • Please inform us if you’ve had recent x-rays with another dental practice. We will do our best to acquire these from them so they can be reviewed at your consultation.
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we may  be able to give you information regarding your possible insurance reimbursement
