What to expect on your first visit to the orthodontist?

We'll examine you and take free pictures and x-rays of your mouth and teeth. Then, a personalized treatment plan will be created to address your specific needs. We recommend that you ask any questions about your treatment plan and learn about financing plans and insurance options. After reviewing your records and completing the exam, your orthodontist will develop an initial treatment plan.

This treatment plan may include first correcting dental problems. You'll need to schedule an appointment with your dentist to correct the problems. When you first go to the orthodontist, you'll visit an office that looks a lot like your dentist's office. You'll sit in a dental chair and the orthodontic technician or assistant may take computer x-rays or photographs of your mouth and teeth.

X-rays and images show the orthodontist where the teeth are located and if you have teeth that haven't come out yet. If you were referred by a dentist, the doctor will review the referral and complete the consultation. Otherwise, your doctor will talk to you about any concerns you have regarding the appearance and function of your teeth. You should also tell your doctor about any dental problems you (or your child) have had.

First of all, we check that the teeth are coming out correctly. And we're looking for any symptoms that could be a sign of deeper problems. If your child isn't ready for treatment yet, we schedule regular observation checks until your child is ready to get the eternal satisfaction of a healthy smile. All patient visits in our observation program are complementary.
