Office Visits

We know you have a busy schedule and value your time.  That is why we try to limit the number of appointments and, unlike other a lot of other orthodontic offices, start delivering orthodontic appliances during your second visit!

Complimentary Exam

Your first visit to our office will be a free exam for you or your child. Records will be taken during this appointment and will include photographs of the patient's face and teeth along with radiographs (x-rays). These records are used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient and are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.  The doctor will then carefully examine the teeth for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems, such as crowding, cross-bite, gaps, etc. The patient's medical and dental history will be discussed.  Once the doctor has a clear picture of the most likely course of treatment, we'll sit down with you to discuss what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take, and how much it will cost. We will provide you with no interest financing options to help you manage your budget. You'll understand everything you need to know in order to decide whether to proceed with treatment.

Bonding Appointment

We will begin this appointment by taking study models of the patient's teeth, which will complete the diagnostic records necessary to start treatment. We will then either place your new braces or fit you for any necessary customized appliances (expanders, Herbst, etc.).  This appointment usually takes one to two hours. 

Regular Appointments

Once all appliances have been placed, you'll then see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for adjustments.  These appointments usually last about 30 minutes each.

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.
