First Visit

Page Photo - First Visit

We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to Kazley Orthodontics.Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and a discussion of your current orthodontic situation. This important 45-minute visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs and wishes. We know that your time is valuable, so we also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records, including X-rays, if needed.

During the initial examination for each patient, we 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 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.

We will then schedule a consultation visit to further discuss treatment options, treatment time and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients leave the office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what the treatment will consist of and how long it will take. Also, we will answer any additional questions.

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

  • Any panoramic X-ray taken within the past 12 months. We can obtain a copy from your dentist before your appointment with us.
  • 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.
  • The health history form that we will send to you before the visit.
