Your First Visit to the Orthodontist
Our goal is to help you achieve the healthy and beautiful smile you’ve always desired. Your first consultation with us is completely free of charge and comes with no obligation. Don't have a referral from a dentist? No problem! We welcome new patients and will make you feel at home right away. Choosing to receive orthodontic care is a big decision, and our team will work with you every step of the way to ensure your orthodontic care is as rewarding as possible.

Every Smile Starts with a Comprehensive Initial Examination
When you come for your first visit in our office, you will meet our team, get to learn more about orthodontics, receive a complete orthodontic evaluation, and receive treatment options with the ability to choose what best meet your needs. This will last for approximately 1 hour and will cover the following:
- Review your dental and medical history forms
- Perform a complete oral exam, with X-rays and photographs, to determine whether treatment is necessary
- Help you create a customized treatment plan
- Discuss all financial information, insurance options, and payment plans
Our team is happy to answer any questions you may have. Please contact our practice to schedule your complimentary consultation.
What happens after the initial consultation?
After the initial examination, your doctor will be prepared to answer any questions you might have. We’ll keep it fun, informative, and will discuss what orthodontic treatment may be right for you (if you need any at all) and if it’s most appropriate now or in the future. In the event that you have several treatment options, we will explain each one in detail.
When it comes to costs, we also prepare a concise and transparent presentation of your fees. You will never be left in the dark wondering where the charges are coming from, nor will you be surprised by any fine print in your bill! In order to accommodate patients with different budgets, we will also present you with several payment options. Need assistance with insurance or any third party options? We can also help.
Keep in mind that we will never pressure you into availing any of our treatments. Instead, we provide you with all the details you need in order to make an informed decision
After your first appointment at Seton Orthodontics, we will deliver a written package that outlines everything that was discussed during the appointment, and send one to your dentist as well. You may even be ready to have our doctors place your new orthodontic appliances right away!
We believe that the best orthodontic care can only be provided in a caring and compassionate environment with clear lines of communication. Every decision we make is tailored to your individual needs and is based on mutual trust.
We look forward to seeing your orthodontic treatment progress as much as you do! Typically, we see you for a visit in our office every 4-10 weeks. When making appointments in our office, please let us know what dates and time work best for you, as it is our goal to book appointments that are as convenient as possible. Our scheduling coordinator is ready to book your first appointment and our team is looking forward to working with you. Give us a call today!
Your ongoing orthodontic visits with us are essential to ensure proper tooth movements happen, at the appropriate time. If we see that extra dental care is needed, we will recommend a visit with your family dentist. It is necessary that you see your family dentist for regular checkups and cleanings once every 6 months, while your orthodontic appliances are in place.
