Your First Appointment

Your First Appointment

Making the decision to be evaluated for braces can be intimidating, especially leading up to your first appointment. Have you ever wondered what that first appointment will be like? Let’s take a step-by-step look at what will happen when you arrive at our office for the first time.

When You First Arrive

When you first arrive at our office, you will be greeted by the receptionist and presented with a new patient appreciation gift. You will then complete the necessary new patient forms before being sent back for X-rays and other imaging. The first step in the transformation process is to find out exactly where you stand right now.

Treatment Options

After X-rays, you will speak to our treatment coordinator. During this time you will learn about the different types of treatment we provide and familiarize yourself with your options. We will talk about what changes you’d like to see and what your goals are.

Meeting the Doctor

After meeting with the treatment coordinator, you will proceed to meet the doctor. Dr. Lagstein will perform a full clinical examination and talk about the results with you. Together you’ll discuss which treatment option best suits your specific situation. We can also show you before and after photos of people who have undergone the same treatments you are considering. This is a great time to tell the doctor what your dream smile will look like. We will set up a treatment plan that will help you achieve the results you desire.

Financial Options

The last thing you will do before you leave our office is discuss financial options. We can help you determine the best method of paying for your orthodontic care. Please visit our Payment Options page to read more about the many ways you can finance your care.
