Kids Walking and Smiling

New patients can expect an easy, three phase process for their oral care.

From the initial consultation to the ongoing checkups, the process to a better smile couldn’t be easier.

  1. 1
    The Consultation

    Every patient’s journey begins with a free consultation where we determine the candidacy of the patient. Digital records including photographs, radiographs, and a quick 4 minute scan has replaced the need for messy impressions.

  2. 2
    The Placement

    The second visit will involve placing your new orthodontic appliance and will last anywhere from 10 to 90 minutes, depending on the solution. We will provide home care instruction and schedule ongoing visits.

  3. 3
    Ongoing Visits

    Every patient’s treatment plan is customized for the complexity of their situation and the solution determined. Ongoing visits range from every 4-12 weeks for a period from 6 months to up to 1-2 years.
