WHAT TO EXPECT WHEN YOUR DENTIST REFERS YOU TO THE ORTHODONTIST

Your dentist believes you can benefit from an orthodontic evaluation. You can expect your initial visit to be a Complimentary Consultation (Free exam!). During your first visit, our orthodontist will review your medical history and take a look at your teeth to evaluate your overall oral health.

Will I Leave Your Office With Braces?

You will NEVER come in for an initial visit and leave our office with braces, ever. Promise.

If treatment is indicated, records- pictures, digital images, and scans-hyperlink to iTero scanner here (no impressions (yuck!)) may be done the same day. You will then be invited back to a consultation appointment so that we can review your specific treatment plan options and go over any questions you may have.

What Happens if You’re Not Ready for Treatment?

A lot of times, you may not be ready for any treatment when you come to your first visit. Or you may not need any treatment at all. Establishing a base line and monitoring patient’s growth (bite and alignment) is also complimentary. We monitor some patients for YEARS prior to any treatment.

Do I Need A Referral to See An Orthodontist?

The answer is "no". You may be surprised to learn that a referral is NOT required to visit an orthodontist. This means you can contact us whenever you are ready to schedule an appointment.
