During your first visit, you will meet a staff member who specializes in guiding you through the initial orientation of our ofﬁce. Following a tour of the office, the Records Specialist will gather information and make any necessary x-rays and take digital photos. The doctor will then evaluate the x-rays and photos and give you a complete orthodontic exam. We will discuss any orthodontic treatment recommended. Appliances, appointments, and financial arrangements will be presented by the Treatment Coordinator. In many instances, we are able to begin treatment the same day if that is helpful to you. Of course, answering your questions is very important. As a courtesy to you and your dentist, there is no fee for this initial visit.
