What to Expect at Your First Dental Visit

New patient forms are emailed to you upon scheduling your first appointment. These forms must be completed before we begin dental treatment and will help you get acquainted with our office.

Your initial dental exam and teeth cleaning will last approximately one hour. Oral hygiene instructions are provided, along with specific suggestions to help you care for your teeth. We will also provide an evaluation that will outline your existing dental problems and proposed treatment.

What to Expect at Your First Orthodontic Visit

Orthodontics are typically long-term treatments, so we believe it is important to establish a positive relationship from the very first appointment. We look forward to meeting you and discussing your goals. At your first visit, our staff helps you get acquainted with our office and learn about your various orthodontic care options. Every patient’s orthodontic treatment is different, so we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve.

Your first appointment will include an examination and an exploration of your potential treatment options. We must determine your specific orthodontic needs, as well as determine if this is the right time to begin treatment.

After we have gathered the appropriate information, we begin a consultation with you to explain your treatment plan in detail. We provide a full diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of our findings, and a detailed report that outlines your orthodontic treatment plan and its estimated fees. We encourage questions, so your consultation will include plenty of time to answer your queries.
