What to Expect During a Consultation?

This is one of the most commonly asked questions, and we are here to assure you that your first visit with us will be fun and exciting! During your consultation, we would like to take a series of digital x-rays to help our doctors develop a comprehensive treatment plan just for you. We will meet with you after your images are taken to discuss the best orthodontic option for you.

We take 16 photos of your teeth because:

  • They provide a baseline to help us follow your growth
  • They help show us different angles of how your teeth are positioned in relationship to your face
  • They are used to communicate our comprehensive treatment plan to your general dentist 
This is a very helpful x-ray. It shows our doctors the health of your teeth and bones. It also shows how permanent teeth are coming in behind baby teeth. We use digital radiology which uses minimal radiation and we try to minimize x-rays whenever possible.
This x-ray is really amazing because it provides our doctors with a view of your skull. They can then study how your bones relate to each other and how you are growing. They can relate your skeletal balance to your facial balance.

The following is a checklist of information that you may want to bring to your first visit to make the process easier.

  • There is no charge for your consultation appointment

  • This appointment will take approximately 1 hour

  • You can save time by filling out our New Patient Forms at home
