What to Expect From Your First Orthodontist Appointment?

You have decided to take the first step towards a new smile, so what should you expect from your first orthodontist appointment?

  • Consultation- The first thing we will do on your first ever appointment is have a consultation. This will often include a physical examination of your mouth, 3D x-rays, and a conversation about your desired end result. We may also take digital scans of your mouth for virtual. We will also discuss pricing options and time frame of achieving that desired result. Dr. Larabee works to make sure any fears are quelled and you are excited to come back to the orthodontist! Learn more about our consultation options.
  • Education- A big part of any appointment with us is education. We strive to make sure you feel well educated on exactly what you need to do to achieve your desired result. We know that orthodontics are an investment and we want you to love your result. We will discuss everything you need to know about eating and drinking, caring for your aligners, and answer any questions you may have.
  • Getting Started the Same Day- We encourage all of our patients get started with treatment the day of their consultation. We’ll find a payment option that works for your budget, you will be able to review your contract and collect the initial payment. If choosing Invisalign we will send the digital scan to Invisalign and Dr. Larrabee will start the prescription process for their custom smile. If you decide our high-tech braces are a better fit, we can place brackets and wires that day as well.
