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 and our fantastic doctors and staff.

We understand that each patient’s orthodontic needs and expectations are different and care will be taken by the doctor 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.
