We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office.
During this first appointment, we will help you get acquainted with our office and staff and discuss your orthodontic treatment. We will answer five essential questions during our time together:
- Is there an orthodontic problem, and if so, what is it?
- What must be done to correct the problem?
- Will any teeth need to be removed?
- How long will the treatment take?
- How much will the treatment cost?
What to expect from your first visit
Every patient’s orthodontic needs are different – and therefore, so are the treatment options. We promise to give you the personal and individual attention you deserve. Your first orthodontic appointment will consist of a thorough examination, X-rays and discussion of potential treatment options. This important visit will address your orthodontic needs to determine a course of action – and when treatment should begin.
Dr. Sawrie will evaluate the case at this appointment, and will give you a clinical diagnosis regarding the nature of the problem. He will also discuss treatment options, goals and estimated fees. You will be provided a financial overview, including payment options during this first visit.
We encourage you to come to this first appointment with any questions you might have. We will take the time to provide thorough answers and discuss any concerns you have.
Save yourself some time in the waiting room during your first visit–print out a patient information form and fill it out at home beforehand.
