Appointments

Your scheduled appointment has been reserved specifically for you. We request 24-hours’ notice if you need to cancel your appointment. We are aware that unforeseen events sometimes require missing an appointment and we appreciate your cooperation.

First Visit

is a consultation which will determine the nature of the problem, estimated treatment time, prognosis and cost. This visit is usually 20-30 minutes in duration.

Second Visit

is a records visit (can be scheduled with consultation). At this time, the models, digital photographs and cephalometric X-ray and panorex is taken. The visit time is about an hour and is always completed in the morning or early afternoon. A note will be given to all patients for absence or late arrival to school or work.

Third Visit

the appliances are placed. At this visit, the brackets, bands and archwires — or the appropriate appliance — will be placed. Instructions will be given for home care, oral hygiene and treatment guidelines. This procedure is always completed in the morning or early afternoon, without exception. This visit time is about an hour.

Adjustments Visits

can be completed at any time during the day. These are usually the bulk of the treatment visits. We will attempt to work them around your schedule. These visits are usually 15 minutes long.

Broken Brackets

In order to maintain our schedule, we must know in advance if you require the extra time needed to bond new brackets and replace arch wires.

Broken/Lost Appliances

Our lab will repair broken appliances (retainer, etc…) if possible. Patients will be responsible for that fee, regardless of insurance coverage. Lost appliances will be assessed at the same cost as new ones. It is suggested that people keep a watchful eye on their appliances to avoid extended treatment time and increased costs.
