Diagnostic Records Appointment

After your initial new patient appointment, if treatment is indicated, diagnostic records are made to determine the best course of treatment. Complete diagnostic records typically include medical/dental history, clinical examination with growth analysis, plaster study models of the teeth, photos of the patient’s face and teeth, and x-rays. This information is used to develop a custom treatment plan for each patient. These records are also helpful in tracking the progress of treatment as the teeth move under orthodontic care.

Second Consultation

After the doctor has studied and evaluated your records, we discuss your treatment with you in detail, including the cost for your particular case.

Regular Appointments

The appointments when you get your appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) usually consist of two, one-hour appointments. You’ll then see us at a regular intervals 6 to 8 weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes 20 to 40 minutes. Our regular office hours are Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 8:30-5:30 pm and Tuesday from 7:00-4:00 pm. Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients, and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately. Cancel only if it is an emergency. It may be difficult to reschedule you since most appointments are made 4 to 8 weeks in advance.
