What Is An Initial Orthodontic Consultation?


DO YOU THINK you or someone you love might be in need of orthodontic treatment? Are you dealing with a lot of teeth crowding or a bad bite? Well, the first thing to do is schedule an initial orthodontic consultation! This crucial appointment will set the stage for any future treatment, but what exactly is it and what should you do to prepare?

What To Expect At Your Consultation

Initial consultation appointments play a very important role in orthodontic treatment. At your initial consultation we will take a series of photos and two x-rays. These photos and x-rays play a very important role in the planning of your treatment. Dr. Brandon will do a full oral exam and go through each photo and x-ray with you. If there is a treatment plan for you, Dr. Brandon and our treatment coordinator will talk to you about your different treatment options and will answer any questions you may have. Once you leave, we will email you a copy of your photos and x-rays for your own personal record.

Before Your Appointment

To prepare for your appointment, please visit the "New Patients" tab on our website - or follow this link: http://www.snovalleyortho.com/forms/. From there you will be able to print and fill out a Health History and Hippa form. If you do not have a printer, we will provide the forms to you at your first appointment. Please arrive to your appointment 10 minutes early to allow for ample time to fill out these forms if you have not completed them ahead of time.
