First Visit

Please contact our office at 817/645-2432, to schedule your New Patient Exam.  We will ask you for basic information that will allow us to schedule your appointment and set you up in our Patient Portal.  The Portal contains the Medical and Dental History forms that we will need filled out prior to your appointment.  We will also need your Orthodontic insurance information in order to verify your benefits.  This will allow us to go over all your financial information at your New Patient Exam, in a comprehensive way.

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of diagnostic records and a thorough examination and  discussion of potential treatment options. The records include an X-ray and photos, that are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan.  This important one hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for the remaining diagnostic records and spacers. The records include an additional X-ray and  impressions for study models.

During the initial examination, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • 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 permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

We will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient's specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

We will then discuss treatment options, time frames, and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of, how long it will take, and with all financial questions answered.
