Orthodontic Treatment Consultation
At the initial visit, we get to know the patient and family members, helping them get oriented to and acquainted with our office and practice philosophy. We then perform a thorough examination to determine if orthodontic treatment is needed. General questions regarding the fee and our payment options are discussed during the first appointment.
After the consultation, diagnostic records may be recommended. These records are an important step in orthodontic treatment. It includes photographs, x-rays and models of the teeth. The information gathered from these records helps us determine an appropriate course of treatment for the patient. We then prepare a treatment plan specifically designed to address the patient’s orthodontic needs and requests.
