Office Visits

Initial Consultation

At your first visit to our office, your initial consultation typically includes the documentation of you and your family's full medical and dental history; and in addition, it includes a comprehensive clinical examination of your orthodontic and dentofacial features. This information is used to inform the patient/parents of any existing orthodontic issues or potential problems. It allows the doctor to assess the patient's need for orthodontic treatment; and if there is a need, he will be able to estimate when to begin the process of starting treatment.

Regular Appointments

If the patient is ready to begin orthodontic treatment, the first step in the process is to take a complete set of orthodontic records. This would include updated personal and family medical histories, a current clinical exam, impressions for study models, digital facial and intraoral photographs and special digital orthodontic radiographs. These records would allow the doctor to make a comprehensive diagnosis and treatment plan that he would review with the patient and/or parents in a separate conference appointment.

After the conference appointment, the appropriate appointments would be scheduled to fit and/or place the patient's orthodontic appliance. You would then se us at regular intervals 4 - 8 weeks apart for adjustments which on average take about 15 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
