Pediatric Dentist

New Patients

Welcome to our new patients!

It is always our goal to make your experience with us a pleasant one while providing you or your child with excellent orthodontic treatment.

Here is some information which we hope you will find helpful.

     For your first visit to our practice, we have reserved special time for you to meet the doctor and the office team. The doctor will do a thorough clinical examination and then meet with you to describe the nature of the malocclusion, discuss treatment options and approximate treatment time. We plan to answer all of your questions pertaining to your personal orthodontic needs or those of your child. You will also receive information about treatment fees at that appointment.

     Upon arrival you will be asked to complete a medical/dental history form which is an important component of your medical/dental/orthodontic records. Or if you would prefer you may print out and complete this form on our download forms link and bring it with you to your appointment.

     If you have insurance which covers orthodontics, kindly bring your insurance information with you at your first visit. This will allow us to assist you with the coordination of any insurance benefits which you may have toward orthodontic treatment.

     Should orthodontic treatment be indicated, the next step in the process will be described and may consist of scheduling an appointment for gathering more detailed information about you or your child in the form of diagnostic records. This information gathering is needed in preparation for a complete diagnosis and orthodontic treatment plan to be set forth by the doctor and discussed again with you prior to beginning treatment.

     We suggest you allow your child to accompany our staff through their orthodontic appointment experience so that we can establish a closer rapport with your child. Our goal is to gain your child's confidence and overcome apprehension. However, if you choose, you are more than welcome to accompany your child to the treatment room. For the safety and privacy of all patients, other children who are not being treated should remain in the reception room with a supervising adult.
