Your First Visit
To Our Cleburne Office
New Patients Always Welcome!
We are always excited about meeting new patients during their first visit to our office. Your initial appointment will consist of a thorough examination and discussion of potential treatment options. We’ll also take some X-rays and photos that are necessary for developing the appropriate treatment plan. This important one hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know that your time is valuable, so to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam to make more diagnostic records and place spacers. The records may include an additional X-ray and making impressions for study models.
During your initial examination, 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?
- Which treatments 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?
We will address specific areas after careful analysis of your 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 discuss treatment options, time frames, and financial arrangements. We insist that our patients always leave our office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what their treatment will consist of, how long it will take, and how payment will be handled.
Please contact our office at 817-645-2432, to schedule your New Patient Exam. We will ask you for basic information that will allow us to schedule your appointment and set you up in our Patient Portal. The Portal contains the medical and dental History forms that we will need to be filled out prior to your appointment. We will also need your orthodontic insurance information in order to verify your benefits. This will allow us to go over all your financial information at your New Patient Exam in a comprehensive way.
