Your FREE Orthodontic Consultation

We are so excited that you are coming to see us! Your first visit is a wonderful way to get to know our team and our office. Our consultations are always free! We love meeting new patients and helping address their orthodontic concerns. Be rest assured, this is a painless, stress-free –even fun- appointment! Drs. Katie and Tim will perform a thorough orthodontic examination and explain your treatment options and recommendations. This is a wonderful opportunity for you to spend one-on-one time with both doctors to discuss at length any concerns that you or your dentist may have. If one parent can’t attend, just let us know and we can set up a phone conference with you after hours to discuss in further detail or address any additional concerns. We ask that you allow 30 minutes for this very important appointment.

After your examination, our office manager will review the financial arrangements, including insurance, with you. You will receive an exact fee, not an estimate, so that you will know the exact cost of your treatment before you begin. To save you an appointment, we would be happy to take your orthodontic molds, x-rays and photos the same day so that you will be one step closer to a beautiful and healthy smile.

We know your time is valuable. We make it our mission to provide you with personalized, efficient service that makes your time in orthodontic therapy as seamless with your life as possible!

Frequently Asked Questions

Will braces hurt?

Will Braces Hurt?

It does not hurt to have braces placed. Brackets may feel a little pokey and rough at first, but after a few days you won’t notice them. Expect to be sore for the first couple of days after getting braces and can be controlled with over-the-counter Tylenol or Advil. By day 3, you will be back to normal!

How Often Do I Come In?

We know you have a life outside of our office. Regular adjustment appointments are scheduled every other month and last around 15-30 minutes.

How Long Will Treatment Take?

Every case is different, but the average case lasts 12-24 months depending on severity.

Do I Have to Miss School for My Regular Checkups?

No! We provide after-school appointments for our patients to keep them at school as much as possible!

Can I Get Colors?

Yes! You can pick your colors and change them at each appointment!
