Your First Visit:
During your first visit to the office, Dr. Arnold will perform a thorough orthodontic evaluation. This should take no longer than 5 to 10 minutes and there is no pain or discomfort involved in the process. All of the following question will be answered following the exam.
1. Is orthodontic treatment needed ?
2. When should we begin ?
3. What is the proposed treatment plan ?
4. How long will treatment take ?
5. What will the cost be ?
6. If applicable, what is my insurance benefit ?
If the patient is ready to start treatment immediately, records will be secured
during this first visit to prevent extra, unnecessary appointments. The records
will be used to create a definitive treatment plan. In most cases, treatment can
start on the second visit.
