Your first visit to our office will be a free exam for you or your child. Dr. Schilling will carefully examine the teeth for a wide range of possible orthodontic problems, such as crowding, cross-bite, gaps, etc. In addition, your free exam includes a review of dental and health history, photos of the teeth and X-rays so that Dr. Schilling can get a clear picture of the most likely course of treatment. Then she'll sit down with you to discuss what type of treatment is necessary, how long it will take and how much it will cost. You'll understand everything you need to know in order to decide whether to proceed with treatment or not.
If you decide to proceed with treatment, we'll set up a second appointment to do a comprehensive review of the treatment plan, and to place braces on the teeth.
After the Records Appointment, we'll be ready to schedule the appointment to get the new appliances (braces, expanders, etc.) placed. Getting appliances placed usually takes one to two hours. You'll then see us at regular intervals four to eight weeks apart for an adjustment, which takes about 30 minutes.
Patients are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep an appointment, please notify us immediately.
