What to Expect at Your First Visit with Your Three Rivers Orthodontist, Bandeen Orthodontics

As your Three Rivers orthodontist, Bandeen Orthodontics has made it our mission to provide you with a world-class patient experience. Whether you’re in need of braces, retainers, or other orthodontic care, our team will do everything we can to ensure your comfort and exceed your expectations on your first visit and every visit thereafter. In this post, we will discuss what you can expect at your first visit with Bandeen Orthodontics of Three Rivers.

First, we take pictures of your teeth and smile in order to show you what we see instead of looking in a mirror. We have found that having an actual picture makes it much easier for our patients to understand their needs, options, and desired outcome. Once the picture is taken and a doctor looks it over and loos at your smile, we may recommend you have an x-ray taken. An x-ray is only recommended if it is needed – not everyone requires and x-ray at their initial visit.

Then, it’s time for a one-on-one talk with your doctor to discuss your orthodontic care. We will let you know what treatment options are available to you, what to expect with each one, and why you might decide on one option over another. After you on-on-one consult with the doctor, you will meet with our treatment coordinator who will review the treatment options with you, answer any additional questions or concerns you may have, and discuss the financial information and options for your orthodontic treatment.

At this time, it’s up to you to decide whether or not you’re ready to begin treatment. Your treatment will begin with x-rays and computer modeling of your mouth and teeth. Beginning treatment at your first visit can even save yourself one or two additional visits!
