We are always excited to meet new patients! During your initial consultation at Legacy Smiles, we will discuss your motivation for seeking orthodontic treatment and goals.
Our team will review any x-rays and notes provided by your dentist and will create images of your teeth and the surrounding tissues using cameras and x-rays to help determine if orthodontic treatment is indicated. We will then present your diagnosis and recommend treatment options, working to develop a plan that best fits your individual needs. We will discuss treatment options and timelines, as well as costs and payment options for any proposed treatments.
Once your treatment plan and financial arrangements have been determined, we will schedule the first series of appointments to begin orthodontic treatment and will provide you with an estimated timeline for future visits. Your first appointment generally takes about an hour. Once in braces, you will return for adjustments and evaluations approximately every 6-8 weeks. Some appointments will only take 15 minutes, others may take up to an hour.
When you come in for your initial consultation, please be sure to bring your insurance card (if applicable) and your completed patient forms.
We look forward to seeing you in our office and showing you how orthodontic care can enhance your dental health and overall wellness. We want you to have the confidence to share your smile with the world!
