We look forward to meeting with you on your first visit to our office!

Your initial visit will consist of an exam and a discussion of all possible treatment options available to you or your child. It is also an opportunity for you to get acquainted with our fantastic doctors and staff.

We understand that each patient’s orthodontic needs and expectations are different and care will be taken by the doctor to provide you with individualized treatment options tailored to your specific needs. We encourage you to ask us questions and we emphasize open communication as much as we do quality treatment and friendly service.


  1. Digital photos will be taken of your teeth from our in house lab
  2. You will be examined by the doctor to determine the following:
    If orthodontic treatment indicated

    • When is the best time to begin treatment
    • How much will the treatment cost (including insurance and payment options available)
    • How long the treatment will take to complete
    • What the appropriate next steps are
  3. You will be presented with a written, verbal and visual interactive explanation of the problems as well as options available to correct them.
  4. Our treatment coordinator (TC) will discuss fees specific to your case, your insurance benefits as well as establish an individualized payment arrangement. She will coordinate any necessary visits with your dentist and/ or other dental specialists. The TC will also schedule any necessary appointments. She is your New Patient Concierge!
  5. There is no charge for the initial exam and typically lasts 30-60 minutes.

  • Bring in any x-rays, models, or other dental records that you may have had taken previously.
  • Write down any questions you may have and bring them in with you to ask the doctor.
