Office Visits

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment is complimentary and will consist of digital images and a thorough examination.  Many of your questions can be answered and we encourage you to share your concerns with us.  If orthodontic treatment is indicated, we may begin that day by taking orthodontic records which will allow us to properly evaluate your orthodontic needs and plan a course of treatment. 

During the initial examination for each patient, Dr. Downey will address the following questions to cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. 

  • Is there a condition that orthodontics can address?
  • Is treatment needed now or should treatment be delayed until appropriate growth, tooth eruption, or other factors have occurred?
  • What treatment procedures will be used to correct the problem?
  • Do any permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

While we can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. We feel it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.

Please assist us by providing the following information at the time of your first visit:

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past six months
  • If you have orthodontic insurance, bring your insurance card. By providing this information at the first visit, we will be able to give you an estimate of your costs.
