Office Visits

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 a New Patient Examination!

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

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Provide a complete oral exam, with photos and X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Discuss your options for orthodontic treatment
  • Discuss financial and insurance information
  • Set up any necessary follow-up appointments
    • If you are ready to begin treatment, we may be able to complete our records appointment that same day!

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 examination today!

What happens after the New Patient Examination?

You're one step closer to achieving the smile you've always wanted! If you are ready to begin orthodontic treatment, we will complete our initial records and schedule an appointment to place the braces or appliances at a later date. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure that you are as comfortable as possible. 

If you would prefer to sit down with our Treatment Coordinator and Dr. Amanda to formally discuss treatment options, a consultation appointment will be scheduled following the completion of your initial records. It would be after this consultation appointment that you would have your braces or appliances placed. 

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.
