What to Expect During an Orthodontic Consultation

If your dentist has referred you to an orthodontist, it means he or she thinks you could benefit from the structural and esthetic changes that a specialist can provide. When you visit our office for a consultation, our Experts in the Art of Orthodontics will make you feel at ease while they discuss how orthodontic treatment can help improve your bite and beautify your smile. Here’s what you can expect:

Meet Our Team

Our receptionists will welcome you into our office and you will be introduced to one of our friendly and knowledgeable treatment coordinators. Your treatment coordinator will be your guide for the day. She will give you a brief tour of the office and get to know you and the concerns you have for your teeth. She will also take your first photos and X-rays, which the doctor will use to begin formulating a treatment plan.

Get to Know Your Doctor

We will introduce you to one of our orthodontic specialists, who will come in and do an assessment of your teeth. Our doctors love what they do, and it shows! They like to be prepared before they meet you, so they will look at your records before coming in to say hello.

Records Review and Treatment plan

Your orthodontist will review your photos and X-rays with you in addition to completing an oral examination of your teeth. He will explain the details of your orthodontic situation and how to best address your concerns. You will be able do discuss the advantages of different treatment approaches such as braces or Invisalign, and which may work best for you. We will help you understand the best time to begin and the estimated time frame of treatment. Please ask any questions you have about your orthodontic needs and your treatment plan. We want you to have all the information you need!
