We are always excited to meet new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a complimentary panoramic radiograph, a series of photos, a thorough examination, and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important 45-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.
During the initial examination for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, at times it is necessary to address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction. Our intention is for our patients to leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of, how long the treatment will take, and how we can help fit orthodontic treatment into your budget.
If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to schedule an appointment, please contact us today at 714-990-5414. We look forward to providing you with the personal care you deserve.
