First Visit

Initial appointments are scheduled during the morning or early afternoon to allow the Doctor sufficient time to do a thorough examination and discuss his findings with you. Usually this examination will result in 1 of 3 outcomes.

  1. The patient is not ready, or may require tooth eruption guidance (i.e. Primary tooth extractions and/or space maintainers) and is placed in recall to be seen at a later date.
  2. The orthodontic treatment will be of a limited nature at this time and appointments can be made for impressions and fitting of appliances.
  3. If comprehensive orthodontic treatment is indicated, full diagnostic records will be needed. These records will need to be scheduled for another day, to be followed a few weeks later by a parent consultation.
