First Visit

You’re on your way to a Smiling Face!

We always look forward to meeting new patients and want your experience to be an enjoyable one. Here’s what you can expect from your fist visit at our office:

You will be greeted by Kris, our treatment coordinator, when you arrive for your appointment. She will give you a tour of our office and introduce you to our team. We will take some photographs and a complimentary panoramic x-ray if your dentist does not have a current one. Dr. King or Dr. McCune will then spend approximately thirty minutes examining your mouth and determining the best course of treatment. Most people have three questions when they first come to the orthodontist:

  1. Do I need treatment?

  2. How long will it take?

  3. How much will it cost?

Dr. King or Dr. McCune will answer these questions and any others you might have during this visit. If treatment is indicated, we will schedule an appointment for diagnostic records which we will use to study your case in detail. We will communicate our findings to your dentist so that we can work closely together on your treatment. We will present our comprehensive plan to you at the consultation visit. If your child is not ready for treatment but would more appropriately be monitored as teeth continue to erupt, they will be placed on our observation program. We will continue to follow their development until an appropriate time to initiate treatment.

There is never any charge for an initial visit or for observation checks during the recall period so please call us with any questions or concerns you might have.
