You deserve a healthy, beautiful smile filled with gorgeous teeth--and we're excited to be on your team to help you achieve it! Choosing to receive orthodontic care can be a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel. Our team will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology, which allows us to offer a variety of safe and gentle 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 Dr. M and our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a comprehensive exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Work with you to create a customized treatment plan
- Review your financial information, insurance options, and payment options
Our team will make sure you have the information you need to make a decision regarding which treatment option is right for you.
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 with Dr. M to place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally takes about an hour. Our team will be available to you during the entire appointment to make sure that 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 your appointments as convenient as possible.
We understand that “life happens”! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know as soon as possible so we we can to accommodate you. When you're ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our office and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you.
Visiting the Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you are receiving the best care possible.
