Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care and where to go for your treatment is an important decision.
Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your experience in our office and the quality of your treatment exceeds your expectations. We utilize the latest technology, and offer a variety of safe and gentle diagnostic tools and treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.
Every smile starts with an initial consultation!
Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. With our iTero Element digital scanner, we can even show you what your smile will look like at the end of treatment before you even get started! During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, with digital X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary, and if it is, the appropriate time to begin
- Help you create a customized treatment plan, even using our iTero Element digital scanner to show you what movement of single teeth will do to enhance your smile!
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your initial consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment and Dr. Johnson will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour, and during this time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to eight weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you.
We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly Scheduling Coordinator will assist you. We’re looking forward to working with you.
Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist or other dental specialist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
