Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, beautiful smile that you've always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. Our practice utilizes the latest technology, offering a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Every smile starts with an initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary

The things the doctor will be evaluating at this appointment include:

  • What your main concerns are
  • The alignment of your teeth
  • The cosmetic appearance of your smile
  • Overall facial harmony
  • How your bite comes together
  • How your jaws are aligned
  • How your teeth function during chewing movements
  • The health of your gums

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! After your consultation, if orthodontic treatment is recommended, diagnostic records are necessary to give the doctors the information they need to develop a definitive treatment plan and be able to answer all of your questions. These records include orthododontic study models, photos of the face and teeth and special orthodontic x-rays. If time permits we may be able to complete this step at the initial appointment, otherwise we will schedule subsequent appointments for this and for a consultation to discuss the records findings. The doctors and the treatment coordinator will review this treatment plan with you at a consultation appointment, usually scheduled 3 weeks after the records appointment.

Scheduling appointments

Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We're looking forward to working with you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
