Every Smile Starts with An Initial Consultation!

What happens during my first visit?

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your needs. During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history forms
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any questions you may have, and we will provide all the information you need to determine which treatment is right for you.

What Happens After the Initial Consultation?

Scheduling Appointments

You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment when Dr. Murdoch will place your new braces or Invisalign. This appointment generally takes about an hour. Our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible throughout the process.

Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. We work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. Just let us know which days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens!” If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know, and we will do everything we can to accommodate you.

When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you. We look forward to working with you!

Visiting the Dentist During Orthodontic Treatment

It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups, even during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is necessary, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the care you need.
