Start Your Journey Toward Straight Teeth

According to the American Association of Orthodontists, your child needs an orthodontic exam around their 7th birthday. By making us your choice for your family’s dental care, we’ll monitor your child’s mouth and jaw development starting with their first appointment with us. We welcome patients as young as 1 year old at our practice. If any issues arise, we can correct them with preventive options such as space maintainers or dentofacial orthopedics.

Everyone can benefit from orthodontic treatment, not just your child! At your first appointment, your dentist will tell you what to expect and all your options. We can even show you a preview of how your smile will look after treatment! Here is what you can expect:

  • Comprehensive Exam – We will get X-rays and perform a thorough oral health exam to understand your current dental condition.
  • Goals Discussion – We will take photographs and discuss your treatment possibilities. We want to be sure your goals are aligned with what’s possible.
  • Explore Treatment Options – Based on your preferences and needs, we will guide you through the best orthodontic options for your case, whether traditional braces or clear aligners.
  • Transparent Pricing – We will provide a detailed overview of the investment.

Common Questions About Your First Orthodontic Appointment

How long does your first orthodontic appointment take?

Your first orthodontic appointment should take about an hour or so, depending on your situation. You’ll meet with one of our dentists, who will discuss your case with you and help you decide on a treatment option that works for your situation and budget.

How should you prepare for your first orthodontic appointment?

Before your first appointment, we encourage you to write down any questions you have about orthodontic treatment. You’ll have the opportunity to get all your questions answered and to gather any details you need to decide on your treatment. Also, take some time beforehand to think about what your smile goals are and write those down.

What happens after your first orthodontic appointment?

After your first orthodontic appointment, you should be informed about your orthodontic treatment and costs. You’ll schedule another appointment to begin your orthodontic care and start your journey toward your new smile. At your second appointment, we’ll either place your braces or give you your first set of aligners.
