First Visit

What to Expect at Your First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your complimentary initial consultation appointment will consist of X-rays, a thorough examination, discussion of potential treatment options with time frames, and available financial arrangements.

During the examination for each patient, Dr. Baker will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We encourage you to ask questions as well.

  • 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?

Following the examination with Dr. Baker, we will discuss treatment financials, including cost and payment options. Also, we will answer any additional questions you may have. We want to ensure that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their orthodontic needs.

If you have orthodontic insurance, please assist us by bringing your insurance card. By providing this information at the time of your first visit, we will be able to give you a more detailed estimate of your costs.

Open Communication

We believe that good orthodontic care begins with open communication. We promise to speak candidly with you about our diagnosis and recommendations, any alternative treatments, and any symptoms present that may require further treatment. Working together, we can achieve a true partnership, with one common goal – helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile!
