Your first visit for an orthodontic consultation at our office is going to be comfortable, informative and free! Upon entering, you will be warmly greeted by our team and welcomed into the clinical area after that. There, you will have specialized orthodontic x-rays taken and then go to the consultation area where you can relax in a comfortable chair. Next, you’ll get to meet with the orthodontist and treatment coordinator. The orthodontist will perform a detailed exam of your smile, checking the way your teeth and jaws fit together. This is your opportunity to:
- Share your concerns about your smile and bite. Is there a problem?
- Discuss whether orthodontic treatment is right for you. Am I a candidate?
- Learn about your smile improvement options. What types of treatment can I get?
- Understand the length of treatment. How long will it take?
- Determine the cost of treatment. How much will it cost?
This is your time to ask questions. We want you to be completely comfortable with any orthodontic treatment that is recommended. It is our goal to get you the smile you’ve always wanted and our team is ready to help you make it happen. In fact, if treatment is recommended and you’re ready to get started we can begin treatment the same day to make the most of your time off from work or school and accommodate your busy schedule.
One of the milestones in a child’s life is their first trip to the dentist!

We understand that you and your child may be nervous about their first visit and we are focused on treating your child and not just their teeth. Our goal is for you and your child to have a great experience!
