We are excited to welcome you to our practice!
Your first appointment with us will be a consultation appointment. We may also take diagnostic records (photos, x-rays, and digital scans of your teeth and bite) at this appointment. This appointment usually takes about 30-40 minutes.
When you are ready to start treatment, we will schedule an appointment to place the braces on your teeth or deliver your first set of clear aligners (e.g. Invisalign). This initial bonding appointment usually takes about 60 minutes.
After your braces have been placed, or aligners delivered, there may be a few longer appointments here and there, but the vast majority of your remaining orthodontic appointments will be quick (15-20 min) adjustment appointments. We know that many of our patients (or at least their parents) would like to avoid having these appointments during school if at all possible. Therefore, we try to fit as many of these short adjustment appointments into time slots before school, during lunch, and after school as possible.

After our treatment goals have been achieved, we will make an appointment to remove any braces or other temporary attachments from your teeth. We may also take follow up records (photos, x-rays, and digital scans of your teeth and bite) at this appointment. The whole process usually takes about 30-40 minutes.
After your active treatment is finished, we will usually schedule an appointment in 3-4 months to make sure that your retainers are fitting properly. We will usually continue to schedule these “retainer check” appointments for approximately 1 year after active orthodontic treatment is completed. Following your last retainer check appointment, you will no longer need to make regularly scheduled appointments. Just give us a call if you have any questions or problems.
