First Visit: What to Expect

A New Experience

We understand that a new dental experience can be an intimidating process, which is why we strive to keep you and your family well-informed and helping you feel as comfortable and confident as possible.

In order to ease your nerves about what to expect, the following steps offer an overview of a typical treatment process.

What Happens on Your First Session

1. Initial Consultation

  • Review past and present medical and dental history
  • Perform a visual examination of your bite
  • Analyze other relevant information (such as x-rays)
  • Recommend a tentative treatment plan and associated costs

2. Diagnosis & Treatment Plan

  • Create Orthodontic x-rays
  • Form custom dental models of your mouth
  • Take photographs of your face and teeth
  • Perform a detailed analysis and complete final diagnosis
  • Create the finalized treatment plan

3. Presentation to Patient

  • Case and treatment plan explained in detail
  • Finalize cost of plan

4. Begin Treatment

  • Active treatment commences
  • Series of appointments may be set-up

We encourage our patients to ask any questions they may have along the way, as it is an important part in determining the treatment that is right for you.

While the type of treatment and severity of the issue will determine the length of treatment, the usual treatment time for full braces ranges between 18 to 30 months. For this type of treatment, visits of 4 to 8 week intervals will be required to adjust your braces to ensure the most successful results of your treatment.

Although our Orthodontists are fully trained as dentists, we specialize only in the treatment of Orthodontic issues. We strongly recommend that you continue a regular schedule of check-ups and cleanings with your family dentist for the maintenance of your dental health.
