What to Expect at Your First Visit

Our greatest goal is to give you the healthy, straight, and beautiful smile you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.

Our practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible. We utilize the latest technology and offer various safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, individual care you deserve.

Every Smile Starts With a Free Consultation

Your first free consultation helps you meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a comprehensive exam, and determine which treatment options will best meet your needs.

During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam with a panoramic X-ray to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • If treatment is necessary, we may recommend orthodontic records. The records consist of a scanned study model, X-rays, and photos, ensuring that you receive the proper individualized treatment plan.

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you.  Don't hesitate to get in touch with our practice to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.

What Happens After Your Free Consultation?

You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted!  Each patient’s treatment is unique. After your initial consultation, you will know the best time frame to formulate an orthodontic treatment plan.

Dr. Parks, Dr. Schmit, or Dr. Fuller will recommend making orthodontic records, consisting of a scan of your teeth and digital radiographs/photographs of the face and teeth. These records assist us in formulating an individualized treatment plan for each patient.

The plan is then discussed at your Treatment Consult appointment one to two weeks later.

Scheduling Appointments

Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to ensure your appointments are as convenient as possible. Please let us know which days and times work best for you when scheduling appointments.

We understand that "life happens"! If you're running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

Contact our practice, and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you when you're ready to schedule your first appointment. We're looking forward to working with you.

Visiting Your Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment

If you choose to proceed with orthodontic treatment, you must continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups.

If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care.
