Your initial consultation at our office will let us build a relationship with you and for you to meet our team. At your first visit, we obtain important background information, such as your medical/dental history, clinical examination, and study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and X-rays. Dr. Nguyen will review your records and develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. We will help you build a customized treatment plan, discuss length of treatment, discuss financial payment plans, and answer any questions you may have.
What Happens After the Consultation Visit?
Now that you have decided to make the investment in your smile and proceed with treatment, we will schedule a record’s appointment. The record’s appointment is about 40 and it is to complete all the preliminary photos, x-rays, place spacers, and or to take impression to fabricate an appliance. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care. This appointment is to get you ready for braces and appliance placement.
The appointment when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) Usually takes from one to two hours. You’ll then see us at regular intervals 4 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Patients are seen by appointment only. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us.
