Your First Visit at Yang Orthodontics
Dr. Yang is always excited to meet new patients during their first visit. Your initial appointment will consist of:
Discussion of potential treatment options
Review of financial options
This important one-hour visit will give us insight into your orthodontic needs. We know your time is valuable so, to expedite treatment, we may also reserve time following the exam for diagnostic records. The records include a few additional X-rays and a digital scan of your teeth which are necessary for developing and confirming the final treatment plan.
During your initial exam, we will address the following questions that cover the basics of orthodontic treatment. We also encourage you to ask questions at any time.
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?
Can Invisalign or Clear Braces 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?
While Dr. Yang can often answer these general questions about treatment during the initial examination, we will address specific areas after careful analysis of the diagnostic records. Dr. Yang feels it is important to analyze each patient’s specific needs, because in-depth planning leads to superior results and higher patient satisfaction.
We always ensure patients leave our office with a clear understanding of their specific needs, what treatment will consist of, and how long it will take.
