Your First Visit
We look forward to meeting you on your first visit to our office. We set aside an hour so we can get to know you or your child and learn about your concerns. As part of this complimentary consultation, we will take diagnostic photographs and x-rays. Dr. Lo will then complete a thorough examination and discuss what type of treatment is necessary. Prior to this appointment, please take a few moments to complete the New Patient Form and the Smile Evaluation Form.
We will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We also encourage you to ask questions.
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- What treatment is required to correct the problem? Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- Will any teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost? What are the payment options?
When making your appointment, please share your dental insurance information. We will assist you to determine your eligibility, complete all insurance claims, and correspond with the dental insurance as needed to make it a hassle-free process for you.
Transforming smiles is an investment in your future and that of your children. We make orthodontic treatment affordable by offering 0% interest financing and monthly payment plans.
After the exam, we'll be ready to schedule an appointment to have your new appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) placed. That process usually takes one hour. You'll then see us at regular intervals of six to eight weeks for adjustments, which take about 30 minutes.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask you to extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
