What to Expect at Your First Visit

  • New patient forms will be emailed or mailed, depending on your preference, prior to your first appointment. They are also available on our website (HERE). Please complete them before arriving to your appointment, if possible. 

  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs at your next visit.

  • Please allow 45-60 minutes for your consultation. During this visit, our assistants will take records including photos, x-rays and a digital scan of your teeth. This scan will be used to create study models, which are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan. Dr. Davis or Dr. Nyczepir will then provide you with a thorough examination, take notes and measurements of your mouth/teeth.   

During the initial exam for each patient, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?

  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?

  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?

  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?

  • How long will treatment take?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

We will then schedule a conference to discuss treatment options, time frames and financial arrangements.
