First Visit

We look forward to meeting you at your first visit to our office. During this time, we will help you get acquainted with our office and learn about your orthodontic treatment. We understand that each patient's orthodontic treatment is different, and we promise to give you the personal attention you deserve. Your first visit will consist of an initial examination and a discussion of your potential treatment options. This important visit will allow Dr. Crews to determine if this is the right time to begin treatment.

During your first visit, 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 permanent teeth need to be removed?
  • How long will treatment take?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are my payment options?

If your child is ready for treatment, the next step is a 30- minute appointment called "records." At that appointment, we obtain photos, x-rays and molds of your child's teeth. After Dr. Crews has evaluated your records, she will conduct a treatment consultation to explain all aspects of your orthodontic treatment in detail. We encourage questions from both the patient and parents, and as such, we provide ample time to answer your questions.

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!
