First Visit

Your first visit to our office is a very important step in getting the beautiful smile you’ve always wanted.

Upon arrival in our office, you will be welcomed by a member of our knowledgeable team. You will be given a tour of the office to help you familiarize yourself with your surroundings and to help you feel comfortable during your visit. The remainder of your appointment will consist of an initial consultation with Dr. Wardell during which he will perform a clinical, oral exam to help diagnose your orthodontic needs. Dr. Wardell believes it is important to take the time to educate his patients about their teeth and explain why orthodontic treatment may be necessary. There are times when he may suggest taking clinical photos and a panoramic radiograph to help make the most accurate diagnosis possible. We always offer free, no obligation consultations to determine the best orthodontic plan for you or your child.

Once your consultation is completed and your initial treatment plan has been presented to you, our treatment coordinator will provide you with a printout of the suggested financial contract at the end of the appointment. This way you may take it home and review it without feeling pressured to make a decision while in our office. Once you have made the decision to start your treatment, you may call our office to schedule your next appointment. For those who are ready and anxious to start their braces as soon as possible, we often times can offer same day starts once the financial contracts have been signed.
