Open Communication


During your first visit, we take the time to explain the concerns about your bite or appearance of your teeth. We explain your overall dental health needs along with the potential cosmetic changes that can be made. Our very thorough exam will answer these questions:

  • Is orthodontic treatment needed?
  • Are there preventative type treatment options for my younger children?
  • When is the best time to begin?
  • What type of braces am I a candidate for?
  • How long the treatment will take?
  • Will permanent teeth need to be removed for treatment?
  • What will the treatment include?
  • What are my payment options?

Our treatment consultation explains all aspects of your orthodontic treatment in detail. We provide a complete clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem, a written summary of the findings and a detailed plan that outlines your treatment, goals and estimated fees. We encourage questions from both the patient and parents, and provide ample time to answer your questions.
