First Visit

Your first visit is going to be amazing.
Get ready!

Initial Consult
Your initial complimentary consultation is an opportunity for us to get to know each other. The doctor will conduct a thorough orthodontic exam, taking photos and a 3D x-ray if needed. We’ll have a discussion about what your concerns are and how we can work to meet your smile goals. From there, we’ll customize a treatment plan just for you. Also during this time, we’ll get your insurance information and will review it to see if your insurance benefits go toward orthodontic care. We’ll also work with you to set up a convenient payment plan so that your budget will be happy, too!

Bonding Appointment
The bonding appointment is when we place your orthodontic appliance (braces, Invisalign, etc) in your mouth for the first time. During this appointment, we’ll also give any instructions you may need, and teach you how to properly care for your appliance. Plus, we’ll give you a goody bag filled with all the things you’ll need to keep your smile and your appliance in tip-top shape.

Follow-up Appointments
We see patients for follow up appointments every 12-16 weeks on average. During these appointments we’ll check in with your progress to make sure that your teeth are moving the right way. Remember, just because you’re seeing us regularly doesn’t mean you should stop seeing your dentist, too. We recommend all of our patients continue to see their regular family dentist for screenings, cleanings, and checkups.

Surgically Clean Air Purifier
Surgically Clean Air’s purifiers use multi-stage air purifying technologies that work together to clean, purify and re-energize the indoor air. The six (6) stage filtration system captures dust particles, pollen, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs), gases, mold, allergens, viruses, odors (like formaldehyde and smoke), bio-aerosols, and many other pollutants that are found in the inside air in workplaces. The negative ion generator makes the indoors feel more pure, clean, and energized to help combat fatigue. For an air purifier to deliver its benefits throughout the indoor space it needs to move large volumes of air through its filtration system effectively without impacting those that are closest to it or being too loud. We have these air purifiers in both of our offices to make it healthier and happier for everyone!
