Your First Visit to the Orthodontist
You can expect your first visit to the orthodontist to last about 40 minutes, consisting of an initial examination and a discussion of your treatment options.
We’ll take diagnostic records as well, including X-rays and digital impressions (that means no messy, gagging goop!) to develop your treatment plan. Plus, we’ll answer all of the questions you have while you’re here. Seriously. You can try us. We guarantee you that you’ll get tired of talking about teeth before we do. We have a lot to say about them and we insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of, and how long it will take to achieve our mutually agreed upon goals.
If you have orthodontic insurance, please bring your insurance card because it will help us give you a better estimate of your costs. Most of our clinics accept all insurances including Arkansas Medicaid – MCNA, Delta Dental Smiles, Delta Dental Smiles for Kids and Missouri Medicaid or MO Healthnet.
Also, please be sure to fill out the new patient paperwork before you come so we can get you in a chair as soon as possible!
