Getting Braces For The First Time

Your First Visit

At your first visit to Dr Henry’s Really Nice Place you will be meeting with our New Patient Coordinator for a 45 minute appointment. This initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination which will provide us insight into your orthodontic needs. After the assessment, our new patient coordinator will review your needs and give you potential treatment options.

During the New Patient Consultation we will address the following questions that cover the fundamentals of your Orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions you may have as well.

Is there a condition that Orthodontic treatment can help?
Is Orthodontic treatment beneficial now or would it be more beneficial to be postponed for appropriate growth, tooth eruption or other factors have occurred?
What different treatment options do I have?
Do I need extractions?
How long will I be in treatment?
What is my total out of pocket cost?
How much will my Insurance cover of my Orthodontic treatment?
What payment options are available?
