Welcome to Our Office!
After your virtual consultation, when you come for your first orthodontist visit, we hope you find our office as welcoming and inviting as we do when we walk through the door each morning. From the decor and convenient technology to the staff, we strive to make each of your visits as comfortable as possible.
What to Expect at Your First Orthodontist Visit
Before you get braces or Invisalign, it is important to find the orthodontist and staff who are right for you. For this reason, we offer a free consultation to every potential patient. First, our highly trained, orthodontic team member will take x-rays, 3-D scans, and photos, including:
A panoramic, full mouth x-ray
A cephalometric x-ray
iTero 3D scanning
Photographs of your teeth, smile, and face
These images are necessary to visualize your teeth, jaws, and facial soft tissue.
After the photos and x-rays are taken, Dr. Patil will join you in a private consultation room to discuss your unique and individualized treatment plan. Dr. Patil will first examine your teeth, jaws, and facial structure and review your photos and x-rays and then listen to your goals, share our recommendations for treatment options, and respond to your questions and concerns as we discuss your individualized plan.
Then, our treatment coordinator will provide a cost estimate for any treatment suggested, will discuss our affordable payment options, and will help you customize a payment plan that works for you. Superior orthodontic treatment makes a lifelong impact on your smile. We want to be sure you have all the information you need to make an informed decision. Our goal is to make sure that no question goes unanswered.
If you have insurance that may include orthodontic coverage, we are happy to find out how much of your treatment may be covered. Just be sure to share your insurance information a few days prior to your visit.
We understand that orthodontic treatment is a major decision and commitment for everyone, so plan to spend about an hour in our office, and feel free to bring the whole family.
Grin App and Scope
And once you are a patient, to reduce in-office visits, we continue to offer Grin, the comfortable, easy-to-use, and visually detailed scope that attaches to your phone and enables you to take accurate videos of your teeth. Images are sent directly to us through a secure app that allows Dr. Patil the clearest image to monitor your treatment progress!
