Your First Visit

Your First Visit

During your first visit you will meet with Julie, our New Patient Coordinator. She will familiarize you with our office and discuss your concerns and treatment possibilities.

At your initial visit, digital pictures will be taken of your facial structure and teeth, and a panoramic x-ray of your mouth.  If treatment is recommended, impressions of the teeth for study models will also be taken at your initial visit, and you can start your treatment as soon as you like. This initial diagnostic information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient.

Regular Appointments


When you begin orthodontic treatment, your first appointment to get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually takes 1-2 hours. You will then see us at regular intervals of 4 to 10 weeks for adjustments, which normally take 30 to 60 minutes. Our regular office hours are Monday through Thursday 7:30 am to 4:00 pm. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.

Payment & Office Policies


The cost of orthodontic treatment depends on the type of issues the patient has, as well as the length of time needed to complete treatment. Our New Patient Coordinator will discuss fees and payment options at the New Patient exam. We have interest-free monthly payment plans to suit different budgets and offer discounts for additional family members who become patients. We are considered out-of-network with all insurance companies, but we will accept assignment from most insurance plans. As a courtesy to you, the patient, we will file the necessary papers to the insurance company.
