What to expect at your first visit
We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office!
Upon arriving, we will gather your completed new patient forms and prepare for the initial exam. We will take a copy of your dental insurance card in order to give you an estimate of your costs.
We will take the necessary photos and x-rays to allow Dr. Boutros to make a proper diagnosis and to develop your treatment plan.
Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of potential treatment options. This important one hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs.
During your initial examination, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment:
- Is treatment needed? Is it needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
- What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. We look forward to meeting you and being your orthodontic care team!
