What to Expect 
On Your First Visit

First Visit

Your first visit to our office will consist of a thorough complimentary initial examination. During your consultation we will gather information about your medical and dental history, and find out your orthodontic concerns and/or the concerns of your general dentist. We will then discuss a variety of treatment options and treatment modalities (techniques and products) that can be tailored to meet your individual orthodontic needs.

First Visit

The orthodontist will then evaluate your smile and bite, after which various treatment alternatives and estimated costs will be discussed. Treatment possibilities can vary from minor limited tooth movement, requiring as little as two to three months, to full comprehensive treatment requiring two years.

If it is determined that treatment is in order, we will take diagnostic records in our office. This typically includes study models (or for Invisalign patients, digital impressions using the iTero iOC machine), photographs, and x-rays, as needed, using our state-of-the-art digital x-ray machine (the highest quality imaging and the least amount of radiation exposure in the industry!).

Your orthodontist, in consultation with his partner, will study these diagnostic records and formulate a plan of treatment. Their recommendations, as well as financial information, will be discussed in detail with you at a follow-up consultation appointment.
