Our greatest goal is to give you a healthy, straight, beautiful smile. 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 practice will work with you every step of the way to make sure that your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible.
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 needs. During your initial consultation, we will:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Provide a complete oral exam, with X-rays, to determine if 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 questions you may have, and we will provide all of the information that you need to determine which treatment is right for you. Please contact our practice to schedule your 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 a records appointment. During your records appointment, we will take any necessary x-rays, models, or photos of your teeth that will help Dr. Bleau develop a treatment plan to suit your needs. This appointment generally takes about 45 minutes. Sometimes this appointment can be combined with your initial consultation. There is a fee for records, but your new patient exam is complimentary.
After your records appointment, we will schedule your bonding appointment. This appointment can take 60 to 90 minutes.
Visiting the orthodontist about every four to ten weeks is an important part of your orthodontic treatment. One of the benefits of the Damon System is fewer appointments. Ask us about the Damon System next time you're in the office!
Our practice will work with you to make sure that your appointments are as convenient as possible. When scheduling appointments, please let us know what 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. We look forward to working with you.
Visiting the Dentist during Orthodontic Treatment
It is very important that you continue to visit your family dentist once every six months, even during your orthodontic treatment, for teeth cleanings and routine dental checkups. If extra dental care is necessary, we will be happy to coordinate with your family dentist to make sure that you receive the care you need.
