What will happen at your first appointment?
Please fill out our new patient form before coming in for your first appointment.
We will take digital x-rays as needed. You are more than welcome to bring a panoramic and/or cephalometric x-ray that has been taken within 6 months. We understand your time is valuable. After Dr. Nguyen examines the teeth and associated structures, we encourage you to ask questions.
- Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
- Is treatment 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?
- Do any teeth need to be removed?
- How long will treatment take?
- How much will it cost?
- What are my payment options?
Dr. Nguyen and his team will answer your questions and concerns. Then, he will give you an overview of the recommended treatment. The cost of treatment and payment options will be presented as well. With this information, you can decide if you would like to start your orthodontic journey.
