New Patient



A warm welcome from Dr. DiGiovanni and the entire staff. We look forward to meeting with you on your first visit to our office!fish_appt.png

Your initial visit will consist of an exam and a discussion of all possible treatment options available to you or your child. It is also an opportunity for you to get acquainted with our office, our Doctor and our fantastic staff.

We understand that each patient’s orthodontic needs and expectations are different and care will be taken by Dr. DiGiovanni to provide you with individualized treatment options tailored to your specific concerns. We encourage you to ask us questions and we emphasize open communication as much as we do quality treatment and friendly service.

What to Expect on Your First Visit:

  1. To have digital photos taken of your teeth from our in-house lab
  2. To be examined by Dr. DiGiovanni who will answer any questions you may have and present you with viable treatment options.
  3. Our treatment coordinator (TC) will discuss fees specific to your case, your insurance benefits as well as establish an individualized payment arrangement. She will coordinate any visits with your dentist or other dental specialist as needed. The TC will also schedule any necessary appointments. She is the New Patient Concierge!
  4. If the treatment is indicated and you are wanting to, we will start your treatment the same day.
  5. There is no charge for the initial exam, and it typically lasts 45-60 minutes.
