Your First Visit

Thank you for choosing our office for your orthodontic evaluation. We hope your visit will be informative as well as enjoyable.

After scheduling your New Patient Consultation, you will be emailed a link to fill out your new patient paperwork.  There will be three forms:  Health History, Patient Information, and a HIPAA consent form.  No need to print them out!  Just fill them out and we’ll have them ready for you to sign on an iPad.  Quick, easy and you’ll be ready for your exam.

At your new patient exam, you will receive a tour of the office and then be seated in our newly designed consultation room. The latest in digital techniques will then be used to image photographs of your face and teeth.

Dr. Moody or Dr. Alexander will then do a thorough exam of your teeth, bite, oral tissues and temporomandibular joints. After which, you, your parents, the doctor, and treatment coordinator will discuss the clinical findings and any areas of concern you may have. The doctor will then recommend treatment options.

 

Diagnostic Records and Consultation

If treatment is recommended at the new patient exam, then complete orthodontic records are necessary prior to beginning treatment. These records consist of photographic images, digital orthodontic x-rays and models of the teeth. With this information, the doctors can finalize treatment plans and treatment costs. Scheduling appointments to begin treatment and finalizing financial plans can be done at this point. If the individual case needs further study or input from other sources, a separate consultation will be scheduled to further discuss treatment options.

Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and relaxed as you enter this new world of orthodontics.
