Prior to beginning treatment, patients and parents visit the office for a consultation appointment. Your consultation will be conducted personally by our doctors, and will provide an opportunity for discussion regarding the type and duration of treatment, as well as other important information. An extremely thorough examination will be completed, and their preliminary findings will be discussed with you at that time. Any additional information that may be necessary to complete a diagnostic work-up will be explained to you, and any questions that you may have will also be addressed at this time.
After the doctors have reviewed the diagnostic information together, and their work-up is complete, they will meet with you for a treatment conference. Every patient's orthodontic treatment is based on an individualized treatment plan developed by our doctors. The practice's unique patient management system concentrates on state-of-the-art technology (including low-radiation, e-mail capable digital x-rays) and patient-centered aesthetics. At the treatment conference, all of their findings and treatment recommendations will be explained to you. The appropriate treatment options will be discussed with you in detail, and you will be informed of the appropriate time to initiate treatment. Detailed information on treatment fees will also be provided at this appointment.
