First & Second Visits

First Visit

The New Patient Visit to our office is designed to allow patients to meet Dr. Harry and to get comfortable with the office.  During this visit, Dr. Harry will examine the patient in order to determine two things: 1)Would the patient benefit from orthodontic treatment? and 2) Is the patient ready to begin treatment?  Dr. Harry will also discuss general treatment ideas, however he often cannot discuss more precise details of treatment and exact treatment fees until a complete set of records are taken and reviewed.  If the patient desires, a complete set of records can be taken at this appointment.  Records include 2 digital x-rays, digital photographs, and study models (impressions).  This appointment is generally scheduled for 45 minutes.

Second Visit

If the patient is ready to begin treatment and records have been taken during the first visit, the second visit will be a more formal Consultation.  During this visit, the records and diagnosis will be reviewed, and a detailed treatment plan will be discussed.  If different options are available for treatment, they will be discussed at this time, along with the associated treatment fees.  Patients/parents are encouraged to ask questions, to help them feel more comfortable with any proposed treatment.
