First appointment

Orthodontic treatments have come a long way since the early days of dentistry. Technology is better. Treatments are less invasive. Perceptions have changed. And the overall experience is more pleasant. And it’s not just for kids either. More and more adults are getting orthodontic treatment because they understand the importance of a healthy smile.

All that being said, we know there will be some hesitation about getting orthodontic treatment. That’s why we’re always ready to address your concerns and clear up any misconceptions you may have.

To get you acquainted with the procedure, here is a synopsis of the things you can expect once you’ve made the decision to improve your smile.


On Your First appointment

The first consultation normally lasts approximately 60 minutes. Our goal during this meeting is to give you a fair, objective assessment of your dental health, answer all your questions, and alleviate any fears you may have.


What you’ll need

We ask that you bring any reports or x-rays that were given to you by the referring dentist. If you are wearing an appliance, night guard or retainer, we’ll need to see that as well. When all is said and done, we want this to be an enjoyable experience that leads to a beautiful, healthy smile you will be proud of for the rest of your life.
