First Visit

Our goal is to give you the healthy, beautiful smile and comfortable bite you’ve always wanted. We understand that choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and we respect your reasons for wanting to improve the way you look and feel.

Our staff will work with you every step of the way to make sure your orthodontic care is as comfortable and rewarding as possible. We use the latest technology, and offer a variety of safe and gentle treatment options to give you the customized, quality care you deserve. We can even scan your teeth and immediately show you a computer simulation of what treatment do for you.

Every smile starts with an initial consultation!

Your initial consultation will give you the opportunity to meet our team, learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete initial exam, and find out which treatment options will best meet your individual desires and needs.

During your initial consultation, we will:

  • Review your dental and medical history
  • Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine whether treatment is necessary
  • Help you create a customized treatment plan
  • Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans

Our team will be glad to answer any and all questions you have. We will provide you with all of the information you need to decide which treatment is right for you.

Please call us to schedule your complimentary initial consultation.

What happens after the initial consultation?

You’re one step closer to achieving the smile you’ve always wanted! After your consultation, we will schedule your first appointment, and Dr. Neely will place your new orthodontic appliance. This appointment generally lasts about an hour, and during that time our team will be available to make sure you are as comfortable as possible.

Scheduling appointments

Visiting our office about every four to eight weeks is an essential part of your orthodontic treatment. Our practice will work with you to make sure your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know which days and times work best for you.

We understand that “life happens”! If you’re running late or need to reschedule, please let us know and we will do everything we can to accommodate you. When you’re ready to schedule your first appointment, contact our practice and our friendly scheduling coordinator will assist you.

Visiting the dentist during orthodontic treatment

It is vital that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups during your orthodontic treatment. If extra dental care is needed, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure you receive the best possible care!
