Your initial visit is a Complimentary Consultation where we help you learn if you need orthodontics. Many people, regardless of age, may be affected by some type of orthodontic problem. We have treated children as young as four years old and adults well into their seventies. Early detection leads to the most effective treatment. This initial screening visit can help determine if braces are right for you.
There are some orthodontic procedures that are lengthy in time and require a longer appointment than the usual 15 to 30 minutes. These appointments include bandings (putting on of braces) and repair of loose braces and are scheduled in the morning or early afternoon, no later than 1:30 p.m. We will schedule shorter regular visits at more convenient times (before or after work/school hours) and save the longer appointments for morning and early afternoon periods. In this way, we will attempt to accommodate as many people as possible during the most desirable times.
If you cannot make an appointment, it is very important that you reschedule within 48 hours of your original appointment. In this way, you may be able to be seen at a more convenient time and avoid possibly waiting 4-6 weeks before your next appointment, since this is our normal scheduling rotation. However, an appointment scheduled during school hours may be arranged sooner.
Emergency appointments are reserved for patients with severe or unmanageable pain or discomfort, infection and/or swelling, or bleeding. These patients will be seen as soon as possible and appropriate care will be given or the patient will be referred to another specialist for treatment. Emergencies usually involve trauma to the face or mouth.
We appreciate your cooperation with this policy. We love seeing you happy; when you are smiling... those teeth show more!
