You are possibly about to begin your orthodontic adventure. Your first appointment is the initial consultation. At this appointment we do a general overview of your teeth, your bite, your smile, and get from you what you like or don’t like about your teeth. We tell you what we think treatment may entail. You will also have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have at this point about your future treatment. You also will receive a financial worksheet giving you information about what your financial obligations will be for treatment. It is important that we have your most current insurance information prior to this appointment to insure accuracy of all information that you receive. If you are ready for treatment your next appointment is for orthodontic records.
